For Halloween, I made crochet Spider garland to decorate my son’s room. Now he loves when his room has some seasonal decorations and he asked me to make something for the upcoming St. Patrick’s Day. I made for his room this adorable Shamrock garland.

How to Make St. Patrick’s Day Shamrock Garland
1. For this project, you need to crochet Shamrock in Hat appliques and heart shamrocks. For my garland, I made three Shamrocks in a Hat and four Shamrocks.
2. Block all the pieces as necessary.
3. Make a string. For the string, you just need to crochet a chain. The length of the chain depends on how long you want your garland to be. My chain is about 60” long.
Leave on each end about 5-7 inches for tying the garland, then arrange the Shamrocks.
You can carefully sew Shamrocks on the string, or you can use small 1″ – 1.5″ crafts clothespins to hang appliques as I did.
I hope you enjoyed this crochet Shamrock garland idea!
