1-Decade Shamrock Rosary Craft

    I find that when I'm celebrating Catholic feast days with my children, they always love to make a craft. These shamrock rosaries are fun and easy to put together, and are an excellent opportunity to incorporate the faith. The best part is, it's easy and cleanup is a breeze.

    • Green beads
    • Green pipe cleaner
    • Scissors
  1. Start by stringing 10 beads onto your pipe cleaner.
  2. Then, shape your pipe cleaner into a simple shamrock, pinching the pipe cleaner between the leaves.
  3. Twist the shamrock closed, leaving a long stem at the bottom.
  4. Add one more bead, snip off the extra pipe cleaner from the bottom, and twist it around the stem to make a cross.

Wasn't that easy? Now you have your very own shamrock rosary for St. Patrick's Day!
