St. Patrick’s Day Shamrock Door Hanger

Shamrock Door Hanger 5I know most of us do not decorate for St. Patrick’s Day, but as easy and inexpensive as these seasonal door hangers are, I decided to add a little green to our front door.  For about $5, it can’t be beat!

Shamrock Door Hanger


1 sheet foam board (20″x30″)

Electric Knife or Exacto Knife

Shamrock Template

Circle template and pencil (use a cup!)

Paint (Folk Art Yellow Citron shown)

Awl or small screwdriver (to pierce hole)

Assorted ribbon/jute/burlap (for hanger)

You can use this shamrock template to trace onto the foam board.  I did enlarge it a bit by tracing a couple of inches outside of the image onto the board.

My little assistant…with hair everywhere and an unmade bed in the background.  Just keepin’ it real.

 I did not take photos of the next step, but I simply used a plastic cup top to trace circles onto the foam board, then painted them with two coats of Yellow Citron.

Next, pierce a hole for the hanger.  *Be sure to test the spot before creating the hole to be sure it hangs at the angle you prefer.

Tie a simple loop/knot to make the hanger with jute or other ribbon.

Tie assorted ribbon, burlap, etc to embellish the hanger, and you are finished!
