Shamrock Wall Hanging

how to make a shamrock wall hanging figure on wood.

Hi guys, I have a really easy project to share with you today: a shamrock wall hanging to celebrate St. Patrick's Day.

A felt shamrock I found at the dollar store was the pattern I used for my project. It was traced onto a piece of wood and cut out with the Rockwell - BladeRunner X2

You can also use a jigsaw, but I love how easy it is to work with the BladeRunner. No clamps are needed; you can use both hands to guide the wood through the blade. ;)

I decided to cut out only the inner hearts. First, small holes were drilled to insert the blade, and then the BladeRunner was used to score the hearts.

Once the whole design was cut out, I used paper as my decorative choice; you can also use paint, fabric, etc.

Long strips of paper were glued to the edge of the shamrock figure, and small cuts were made to better secure the paper to the shamrock's rounded lines.

Once all the edges were covered, the shamrock was traced onto decorative paper. To let the edge show, you need to make the design smaller, as shown in the picture below.

Using glue, attach it to the wooden figure.

I went ahead and traced the pattern on two different pieces of paper, front and back, and added the same kind of paper as the outer edge of the shamrock into the inner edge of the hearts.

One small hole was also drilled at the top of the shamrock so a piece of ribbon could be passed in order to hang it.

I'm using it on my door.
