Shamrock Wall Hanging


how to make a shamrock wall hanging figure on wood.

Hi guys, I have a really easy project that I want 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 is to work with the BladeRunner, no clamps needed and using both hands to guide the wood through the blade. ;)

I decided I only wanted the inner hearts to be cut out. Small holes were first drilled to insert the blade, and then continue using the BladeRunner to score the hearts out.

Once the whole design was cut out, paper was my decorative choice, you can use paint, fabric, etc.

Long strips of paper were glued to the edge of the shamrock figure, making small cuts to better secure the paper to the rounded lines.

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

I went ahead and traced the pattern on two different papers, 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.

  2. Oh no Jennifer, I think you can do it too! Really, the BladeRunner is very easy to use, even my 12 year old son has used it, of course, with me by his side, and he thought it was awesome! Have a great week!
