This cute little shamrock only takes a few minutes to make. You can use a safety pin to wear it as a pin or it could be glued to a barrette and worn in your hair. Either way it will ensure that you don't get pinched!
- small piece of cardboard
- Sharpie, fine tip
- green felt
- safety pin or barrette (optional)
- Fold the piece of cardboard in half and draw your template along the folded edge.
- Cut it out and open it up. Using a Sharpie, trace the shape onto the felt 4 times.
- Cut out all the felt pieces.
- Thread the needle and knot the end of the thread. Run the thread through all for of the pieces as follows: put the needle in from the top and come back through just a little bit over, then go down and up again. (It will go through each piece twice.)
- Continue until all four pieces have been threaded.
- Carefully bunch the pieces up, pulling the thread so that there is no excess thread in between the pieces. Curve the pieces to form a 4-leaf clover.
- Using your needle, sew your first and last clover leaf together. Knot your thread and cut off excess.
- Attach your clover to a safety pin or barrette and wear it!
