St. Patrick's Day Shamrock Rosary for Kids- A Fun Craft!

When we were making our little rosaries the other week, we also made some trinity shamrock rosaries since St. Patrick's day is just around the corner! :-)

I also had some cute child-made ones, but my kids ran off with them. I'm having such a hard time photographing their crafts recently! Lol!

Aren't these shamrock doilies too cute?! I got them at Michael's, and overpaid. I think they were $2.50 a package. I have a serious thing for doilies. :-)

To make these, follow my directions for making one decade pipe cleaner rosaries, and then bend them into a shamrock shape. You can find directions for bending pipe-cleaners into shamrocks here. I would suggest green beads and pipe cleaners, but to each his own. :-) Teach your kids the story of St. Patrick while they're making their shamrock rosaries.

My kids watched Patrick, Brave Shepherd of the Emerald Isle while we made ours. This is such a cute movie for St. Patrick's Day! My kids really enjoy the CCC movies.

Patrick, Brave Shepherd of the Emerald Isle
If you don't own this movie and the thought of spending lots of money on Catholic movies in this economy freaks you out, I'd like to introduce you to "Catholic Netflix". Ok, really, they're called Pius Media, but they really are just like Netflix for Catholics, and they have ALL the Catholic movies you could ever want to rent! If you're already a member, don't forget to add this movie to your current queue! :-)

Also, I'm going to be hosting a St. Patrick's Day liturgical link up later this week, so get your St. Patrick's Day posts ready! I love seeing all of your ideas!

  1. This craft is super cute and look like a lot of fun! Great idea. Thanks for sharing.

  2. I love this but I can't get mine to look like a shamrock?? any suggestions?

  3. Sure! After you make your rosary, visually separate the circle into thirds. Then "pinch" the pipe cleaner and make a crease in the 2 places between the thirds. These places are where it dents in around the shamrock petals. Shape the shamrock petals round with your fingers. You can also pinch the pipe cleaners back towards the shamrock stem around the cross. Putting the creases in the pipe cleaners should help you a lot with the shaping process. Hope this helps you! :-)

  4. Thanks for the comment on our rosarys. My boys are little old for this craft, but were happy to have something new to add to our St. Patrick's day festivities.
