Use craft felt in various shades of green and a needle and thread to create shamrock embellishments. Attach them to ribbon, safety pins, hair clips and more for a festive St. Patrick's Day look.Marianne Canada
Cut a 1-inch strip of felt. (For a large shamrock, make the strip 1.5 inches wide.) Then, cut the strip into four equal pieces.
Cut an "m"-shaped notch into each felt piece, about halfway up. Repeat for remaining felt pieces, using first piece as a template.
Put two stiches into each petal, stringing them all onto embroidery thread. Pull thread tight, cinching the petals together.
Tie in a knot and trim excess thread. Then open the petals and pull them into a shamrock shape.
Using hot glue, affix shamrock to hair clip, safety pin or ribbon.
Wear in your hair (Images 1, 2) or on your shirt (Image 3) to spread St. Patrick's Day cheer!
