Drip Easy Marble paints on the water following the manufacturer’s instructions. Work quickly to swirl the paint with a skewer and then lay the watercolor paper on the surface.
Allow the papers to dry thoroughly.
Cut your shamrocks from the dried watercolor paper using a die cutting machine or scissors. To die cut the shamrocks, create a new project in Cricut Design Space. Bring a shamrock image (like this free one found on Pixabay) onto the canvas.
Duplicate the shamrock in various sizes from 2 to 4 inches. You’ll want a good assortment of shamrocks to add to the wreath. Make the project. If you’d like, outline the cut shamrocks using a gold paint pen.
Paint the front of the photo mat with dark green paint. Allow to dry.
Arrange the shamrocks on the front of the photo mat and glue in place.
Print a copy of a leprechaun image on letter size paper. Glue or tape the leprechaun image and ribbon to the backing board of the mat.
Glue the front of the mat to the back of the mat.
