St. Patricks Day poster by Nanny Gael Ann and her creative assistant

St. Patrick's Day Shamrock Looking for a fun way to decorate for St. Patrick's Day?
Just grab your little leprechaun(s) and paint a shiny shamrock poster.

You will need:
One large poster board
Black permanent marker
Light corn syrup (1/2 to 1 cup)
Green food coloring ( a few drops)
Foam craft paint brush

1) Mix a few drops of green food coloring into the corn syrup.
2) Draw a large shamrock on the poster board. If you need a little help drawing the shamrock just think three hearts and a stem. I cut a large heart from a plain piece of 8.5 by 11 paper and then used it to trace around to form the three "leaves" of the shamrock and then added a stem.
3) Paint away little leprechauns. It dries fairly quickly but retains that wonderful shine.
Happy St. Patrick's Day from Nanny Gael Ann and her creative assistant!
