Giant Geometric Wall Shamrock


Well, I had to do it.  Here’s the St. Patrick’s Day version of my Giant Geometric Wall Heart that I made for Valentine’s Day.  Green is my favorite color, so I think this guy is going to stay on my dining room wall for quite a while.  Plus, it should bring me some good luck to have a giant shamrock in my home, right?
For this shamrock, you’ll need 10 pieces of scrapbook paper.  I used mint, forest green and metallic gold.  You simply cut each piece of paper into 6″ squares and then cut those squares diagonally to make triangles.  Each piece of 12″ scrapbook paper will give you 8 triangles.  To make the shamrock shape, you will be making 3 hearts (like my giant geometric heart) and then adding a stem that is 3″ wide.  I attached the triangle to the wall using glue dots.  I tried double stick tape, but with the texture of my walls, it didn’t want to hold well.  
  

It goes perfectly with my Green and Gold Geometric Pillow.  I am really loving this mint and gold combo for St. Patrick’s Day.

What do you think about my “go big or go home” holiday decorations?  I’m having fun with it, would you put up something this big on your wall?  If you do decorate for St. Patrick’s day, what does it look like?

    Love your blog, Jeran! I found out about it from The Anthology blog and am absolutely in love with all your creative ideas – especially your recipes. Next time I have a party, I'm definitely using some of your ideas 🙂

    This. Is. Glorious. Except, I would keep mine up all year long. Haha. Such a cool idea- off to steal it right now 🙂

      Yay! Glad you like it. I hope you do make one. Be sure to share it on O+P's facebook page or tag me (@jeranmcconnel) in an instagram pic of it. I'd love to see the finished product.

    That is a beautiful decoration. I love the shimmer of the gold with the shades of green. I love to craft and create but I can barely manage a straight line so you have all my respect for cutting those many, many straight lines. I love it!

    My kids and I just put this up on our wall. (I let them cut the pieces and arrange it.) Thank you! I needed a new art project for March.
