Giant Recycled T-shirt Shamrock craft decoration for St. Patrick's Day
I love crafting "green", both eco-friendly and for St. Patrick's Day.

I like working in all different scales. I did two fun crafts for St. Patrick's day. One tiny little recycled wool felted sweater shamrock pin and these big shamrock wall decorations out of hangers and t-shirts. Read on for the recycled t-shirt and wire hanger wall St. Patrick's day shamrock. I'll be posting the tutorial soon for the recycled sweater shamrock!

  • How to make a model or sculpture. Giant Shamrock - Step 1
    Step 1

    First I went to the old t-shirt stash for some green t-shirts and to the closet for some wire hangers.

    To cut the t-shirts into strips I ran them through my Deluxe Rotary Cutter. This made the job so easy and quick. I set the Rotary Cutter to about 2.5 and I got about 5 yards of t-shirt strips from each shirt. I just kept cutting around and around.

    I bent 4 hangers each in kind of a "heart" shape.

    Then I taped them together with a bit of packing tape and wrapped them with the t-shirt strips. I wrapped with one color to cover the hanger and then with the other color loosely to make a candy can like stripe. The big shamrock took 2 t-shirts to cover. So I had one t-shirt all cut into a strip so I bent one more hanger and made a little shamrock.
