Shamrock Wands are easy to make for your celebrations or decorations for St. Patrick’s Day! This is an easy Shamrock craft to make with the Cricut. The Cricut craft project includes a free clover template to print and use!
Use the designed clover template in Cricut Design Space (instructions below). Cut this project with the Cricut cutting machine.

How To Make Glitter Clover Wands With The Cricut
Cut equal amounts of clovers. Cut one set of clovers as shown on the template. And another set of clovers with the mirror image on! This will ensure your glitter cardstock is on the proper side for making the craft and glueing the clovers together!
You can hover over a clover on the cut page and bring up hide image if you want to cut less clovers than show.
For example, if you are making 9 wands total. Cut 9 clovers with the template. Cut another 9 clovers with the mirror image on. You will find the toggle on the cut page. (shown below in image)
If cutting them by hand, cut with the template for the amount you want. Then, flip the glitter cardstock paper over to cut the design opposite. Do a test cut to make sure this aligns with both proper sides facing out. Before cutting them all.

St. Patrick’s Day Wands
Instructions For How To Make And Assemble Shamrock Wands
- Heat up the glue gun.
- Cut the clover shape. (I made mine 3 inch). Do this by hand or with the Cricut using the clover template. You can adjust the size if needed.
- Face the clover glitter side down on the craft table or protected work space.
- Make a bead of hot glue on the cardstock in a line in the middle.
- Place the dowel directly onto the hot bead of glue. Turn it over and make sure to align the clover’s stem centered on the dowel.
- Repeat this process for the opposite side of the dowel. Now, align the two clovers evenly.
- Let it dry.
- Cut the ribbons 14 inches. Coordinate the ribbons to go with the craft project’s cardstock and/or theme.
- Next hot glue the inside of the clovers on all four sides of clover. Hold down the sides after gluing. Do this until the section is dry.
- When all the sides are done; Add the ribbon tied just under the tip or near the bottom of the clover stem.
- Slide the ribbon down slightly and hot glue into place, by sliding the ribbon over the hot glued dot.
- Repeat the same process for as many clover wands as you want to make!
Tada! Now you have glitter clover wands (clover fairy wands) to use in your St. Patrick’s Day Celebrations and for your decorations! You might like to make a frosted clover luminary put them into! Or use a vase, mason jar, or jar. Keep the Shamrock Wands in jars and take them out to use.
