Finger Paint Shamrock Card

Happy Sunday! I hope you all are having a wonderful weekend. We're finally having some beautiful weather after so much wind and rain. The dogs are especially thrilled that they can roll around and be lazy outside in the sun!

I can hardly believe that St. Patrick's Day is just around the corner! It seems like we were just celebrating Valentine's Day. If you're looking for a St. Patty's craft that it super easy and inexpensive, look no further! This Finger Paint Shamrock Card is so easy to make and would make a perfect project for kids.

All you need is a blank card, green paint, a pencil, a shamrock cookie cutter or stencil, and a permanent marker or glitter pen. I purchase my blank cards from Walmart, but I'm sure any craft store sells them.

Begin by lightly tracing the cookie cutter or stencil onto the front of the card. Next, dip your finger and begin to trace the outline of the shamrock, making small dots and ovals with your finger. Once the shamrock is "outlined" in paint, begin by filling it in. Once the paint dries, add a festive saying or phrase with permanent marker or a glitter pen.

How are you celebrating St. Patrick's Day?
