When all else fails, I adore a yarn-weaving craft. It’s such a great activity for hand/eye coordination, but it’s also just a really neat effect. Sometimes, though, I’m just not so fond of all the hole punches. Which why I’m so super excited about this Paper Plate Yarn Weaving Shamrock Craft! No hole punch required!
Not that we’re completely against the hole punch. We’ve done a number of yarn weaving and lacing crafts before, each with our trusty paper punch. Some of our favorites include our Cardboard Lacing Hearts, this Apple Paper Plate Lacing Craft, our Paper Plate Lacing Ladybugs, as well as our Paper Plate Yarn Weaving Flower Garden Craft and a Plastic Lid Yarn Lacing Turtle. When you want to give your hand a break, though, this Paper Plate Yarn Weaving Shamrock Craft is the way to go!
Lacing or weaving, it all starts with yarn. For our Paper Plate Yarn Weaving Shamrock Craft, you’ll need green yarn and a paper plate. We’ve also made a Shamrock Template for you to print and trace around on a paper plate to make it easier. The only other supplies needed are scissors and clear tape to hold the yarn in place.
Paper Plate Yarn Weaving Shamrock Craft
- Shamrock Template
- Paper plate
- Green yarn
- Clear tape
Print the Shamrock Template. Cut out.
Trace around the Shamrock on the back of a paper plate.
Carefully cut shamrock shape from paper plate.
Cut a long strand of green yarn. Tape the beginning end to the back of the paper plate. Start wrapping around the paper plate. Go random, looping around the points of the shamrock, too.
When one strand is finished, tape off and continue with another strand until the plate is covered and shamrock is complete.
