Lucky Clover Printable Rainbow Banner for St. Patrick’s Day

Is there anything better than a rainbow?

The way the colors magically appear after a storm, a hint of sunshine after a gray winter, the whimsical imagination of a child looking for the pot of gold at the end of rainbow!

Something about seeing a rainbow just makes me feel lucky.

Time: This project took no more than 30 minutes.

Process: Print out a couple sheets of the printable shamrock template on to card stock or watercolor paper, simply paint each row a different color of the rainbow (red, orange, yellow, green, blue, purple). I love involving my children in the creative process. My daughter was thrilled to paint each row for me. I used acrylic paint and watered it down a little bit, but you can use whatever paint you have. Once the paint is dry, cut out the clovers.

I originally tried cutting out each shamrock individually, but decided I liked the square shape more than the completely cut out clover. It offered a bit more color and the squares layed flat on the banner much better than the clovers.

Tip: I used one square as a template so that they all looked uniform.

Next, I turned each of them over and taped the back to a piece of string. I love how this project turned out and I hope you do too!

BONUS:
Here are some ideas on how you could kick this project up a notch:

Lay several finished banners across a table and use as a runner.
Wrap a strand around a St. Patrick’s Day gift to add a little flair.
Hang a few on the wall at different heights to be used as a photo backdrop.
Add glitter on top of each color!
Wrap the banner around something as a St. Patrick’s Day leprechaun prank.
