STEP 2: Prepare the rainbow pieces


To get started, cut the rainbow coloured felt into thin strips, about 5-6 inches in width.

STEP 3: Cut the shamrock piece


Next, we need to create the shamrock. You have two options for this - fold the foam in half and cut out half of the design (shaped as two hearts) and then unfold it back out. This is how we made the shamrock wand pictured. 

Alternatively trace and cut out this shamrock template included in another St. Patrick's Day craft.

STEP 4: Assemble the shamrock wand


Once you've done that, add some glue to the top of the stick and press the shamrock into place. Hold it there for a few seconds, until it is secured to the stick.

Next, add the rainbow strips by applying more glue and pressing them into place.
