Fearless Friday, Shamrocks

I am all about March this week,

and today I want to show you how to draw/paint shamrocks

so you can make some St. Patrick’s Day crafts

A shamrock is just 3 or 4 heart shapes put together on a stem

To paint a shamrock, or a 3 or 4 leaf clover,

you just need hearts

4 leaf clover thepaintedapron.com

Painting hearts is easy,

if you need a refresher course you can see Painting Hearts here

Two C shapes, one backward, tilted and joined together,

then fill in the middle

painting shamrocks thepaintedapron.com

You can use paint, markers, chalk ink pens, whatever you like


I used 2 green Sharpies for these little bags

Acrylic paint made for glass was used on this vase

When you paint on glass,

you can practice your strokes on a piece of aluminum foil,

the surface is slick like glass

so your paint will react the same way

The shamrock leaves on the vase are composed of 2 short, fat strokes

and then a thin stroke for the stem

You can see the tutorial for the leprechaun here

The shamrocks on these stemmed glasses are larger

but painted the same way

Once the green paint was dry

I added simple patterns with white

These little bags are fun to use as favors at each place setting

Fill them with a few chocolates and coins for each guest

You can also paint a shamrock plant

like this one I painted on a decorative sign for the porch

to welcome leprechauns!

I hope you will have fun with shamrocks

Be Fearless!

  1. Here come the shamrocks!

  2. I was just thinking about shamrocks this morning. Once a year I buy a shamrock plant to slowly kill (last year’s still has three shamrocks on it!). I think I’d do better painting them!

  3. I’ve already set a green table, but need an extra “punch” of cuteness. Thanks for the ideas! I think a vase and shamrock plant is needed.

  4. Your shamrock art is the best!

  7. Your shamrocks are so beautiful, Jenna.

  9. Love all your shamrocks Jenna. Thanks for the St. Patrick’s Day pretties and inspiration.

    Such a great tip to practice painting on foil to mimic a glass surface Jenna! The leprechaun feet in the hat is too cute! ☘️☘️☘️

    Jenna, I love your shamrock crafts – they are all so cute! I’m wondering if you had to bake the wine glasses in the oven after you painted them as I think I’d seen that somewhere before? Hope you are having a lovely week there!

    • Thank you Kim! Yes, I used acrylic paint for glass that you bake in the oven to “cure” it, that way it’s top rack dishwasher safe. Weather has been great, 80 degrees today!
