Create a shamrock from a 12-inch piece of ribbon that is at least 1/4 inch wide. I found that the wider the ribbon, the easier it was to create. Now you have no excuse for not wearing green on St. Patty's Day! Finished Ribbon Shamrock Pin


Approximate Time: about 30 minutes




  1. Cut ribbon into 4 equal size pieces that are 3 inches long. Ribbon Shamrock Pin Step 1

  2. Fold one piece in half, pressing firmly at the fold to create a crease. Ribbon Shamrock Pin Step 2

  3. Apply a dot of glue in the fold and press the two sides together. Hold for a few seconds until glue dries. Ribbon Shamrock Pin Step 3


  4. Hold the ribbon with the fold pointing downward. Pull the two ends around and overlap them, creating a heart shape. Apply a dot of glue to hold in place. Repeat with two more pieces. Ribbon Shamrock Pin Step 4

  5. Now you have 3 shamrock petals. To create the stem, fold the fourth piece in half and pressing firmly at the fold to create a crease as you did for each petal. Apply a dot of glue between the two ends and press together. Hold for a few seconds until glue dries. Ribbon Shamrock Pin Step 5

  6. The folded end will become the bottom of the stem. Begin gluing each petal to the stem. Start with the center petal, then add each side petal. Ribbon Shamrock Pin Step 6
