Wine Cork Shamrock Crafts for St.Patrick's Day
You will need green paint,
a tiny paintbrush,tape,
and three wine corks
Start by aligning the three wine corks so that
they make a flat top,
then tape them together.
I used washi tape just because it was
green but it really didn’t stick too well!
green, or have the kids dip them from
a plate. Stamp the corks against
a piece of paper
and push really hard.
Add some shamrock stems with the little paintbrush to
finish them off!

St. Patrick’s Day Tissue Paper TopiaryYou will need:
STYROFOAM Brand Foam: 12” cone
Tissue paper in three shades of green, plus white (I found white tissue paper with gold polka dots at Target)
Low-temp glue gun
Optional: Thick, white craft glue
Tools needed: Scissors; tape measure; straight pins
To make a St. Patrick’s Day Tissue Paper Topiary:
Cut a strip 12” long and 5” wide from a double layer of tissue paper. Fold in half to measure 12” long x 2-1/2” wide. Your tissue paper strip should now have four layers.
Hold the layers together, and cut fringe along the open, 12” edge. Make about 4 – 5 cuts per inch. It doesn’t have to be perfect, and it will go faster than you think.
Wrap the fringed strip around the base of the 12” cone and pin in back. Adjust as needed so the strip is straight. Optional: Spot glue in place with white craft glue.
Wrap the tape measure around the cone, about 1” above the last fringed strip. This will be the width for the next paper strip. Continue to wrap the cone in fringed tissue paper strips, completing seven rows.
For the last three rows, cut your tissue paper strips 3” – 4” wide, so they measure 1-1/2” – 2” wide when folded. This will make it easier to wrap the strips around the narrow top of the cone.
Glue the gold coin to the top
