If you want to make your own shamrock angel, follow the simple steps below!
You Will Need:
-green construction paper
-white construction paper
-peach or light pink construction paper (optional)
-scissors for cutting
-a pencil for tracing
-stickers for decorating (optional)
Step 1. First, you'll need a shamrock pattern (a shamrock to trace). You can use any shamrock pattern you want. In my classroom I had a huge shamrock pattern, but that isn't really feasible to share on the internet, so I used a smaller one for this purpose. I got my shamrock template here. If you don't like this one, you can print other ones for free off the internet or draw your own.

Step 2. Trace 2 shamrocks, one on the green paper, and one on the white paper.
Step 7. Glue the white and green shamrocks together, like the picture shows. You can bend the white paper a bit to make it look more like wings.
|You can trim the paper any way you need to.|
There's your angel! You can decorate the wings or the body any way you like. We used stickers on the wings and made a belt and other decorations with construction paper.
Are they 'Shamrock Angels' or 'Leprechaun Angels?' You decide!
