Happy St. Patrick’s Day everyone! I am not Irish, but I do appreciate celebrating the festivities of this day!  In the old days, my celebration  would have entailed several green beers or midori sour cocktails, these days it involves rainbow mobile crafts!   Oh, how times have changed.  

I found this EASY little craft to do with my daughter on this website. I love to find things that I can make with supplies currently on hand, as I rarely plan my crafts ahead! Here are the directions…

Supplies Needed:

  • A white paper plate
  • Green and yellow paper (or white paper and black, green and yellow crayons, marker, or paint)
  • Printer
  • White glue or a glue stick
  • Scissors
  • A hole punch
  • String (green is best, or you can color white string with a green marker)


  • Step 1: Fold, then cut a white paper plate in 1/2.

    Step 2: Draw a rainbow on the paper plate using markers, crayons or paint.  Then punch 3 holds, one at the top and two at each of the ends of the rainbow.

    Step 3: Click here to download the Shamrock Template and print on green paper.  Or, print on white paper and color green with markers, crayons or paint. Or, just draw your own! If you are feeling extra crafty, top with green glitter!   Cut out and punch a hole at the top.

    Step 4: Click here to download the Pot of Gold Template.  Print, color and cut out.  Or, just draw your own!  Cut out gold coin circles out of yellow paper, or make yellow ones on white paper.  If you are feeling extra crafty, sprinkle with gold glitter! 

    Step 5: Glue the coins to the top of the pot, and punch a hole at the top.

    Step 6: Cut pieces of green yard or ribbon, and attach pot of gold and shamrock to either side of of hte end of the rainbow, and one piece on top for hanging.
