No matter what the topic, it seems you can always make something related out of a paper plate.

A St Patricks Day themed paper plate craft has a rainbow, and of course, a pot of gold.

Pleated Paper Rainbow Circle
Mar 13th, 2015 by Craftylocks

Rainbows are such a great excuse to use colourful paper. Add a pot of gold and it is a St Patricks Day paper craft!

For this craft you need paper in all the colours of the rainbow, to make it a St Patricks rainbow craft make sure you have some extra green paper for a shamrock, and brown for the pot of gold.

Good luck and have fun making your St Patricks rainbow circle.

Pleat each sheet of paper and then fold it in half. Cut out a shamrock and pot shape out as well.

Glue each pleated fan together in the middle, and to the next fan. I thought it looked quite cool cool after each one had been glued together and it made a half circle fan shape.

But the plan was a circle, so I made the final glueing step and joined all the fans together to make a circle with a pot of gold in the center.

St Patricks Day Envelope Corner Bookmark
Mar 12th, 2015 by Craftylocks

I had so much fun making these the other day that when a green envelope arrived in the house, I knew it needed to become a shamrock bookmark!

Please have a look at all the steps for Bookmarks made from Envelope Corners to see how easy they are.

For a St Patrick’s shamrock bookmark we of course needed to bookmark a book by an Irish author! An author that we love and highly recomend is Roddy Doyle, and his books; The Giggler Treatment and Rover Saves Christmas. These were also some of the stories the children read to me while I painted the Forest Lagoon Mural.

Tissue Paper Mummy
Oct 11th, 2014 by Craftylocks

The great thing about this craft for little fingers, is that if some of the tissue paper goes on a bit messily and you have sticking out and dangling bits, then all the spookier! Make lots of this little guy and string them up as a decoration, or even give one away with ‘treats’ at Halloween.

This one was made on a chenille stick body – but you could also make a body out of cardboard to wrap. Just use a roll of tissue paper and start wrapping. Add a dab of glue or some sticky tape every now and then to keep the bandages in place. Finish with a couple of googly eyes.
