How to Make paper Shamrock bunting

St. Patrick’s Day is a fun holiday. There are no high expectations, and you can celebrate it or not. I decided to enliven my house a little this year, and so I made a shamrock garland from green paper and baker’s twine.  It was super easy, and is great for parties or just to decorate for a day or two.

Materials:

Green Paper
Hole Punch, 1/8 inch
Baker’s Twine
Scissors
