Shamrock Plant Poke

Shamrock Plant Poke from CraftsbyAmanda.com @amandaformaro

St. Patrick’s Day is right around the corner, so I wanted to share this shamrock craft with you. I made this shamrock plant poke for Michael’s Craft Stores highlighting their economical paint line called Craftsmart. To make this shamrock plant poke I used wooden hearts, a wooden dowel, Craftsmart paint and finished it off with some multi purpose sealer. You could absolutely use whatever your favorite paint brand is!
