Here is a teenage craft for St. Patrick's Day craft that is quick and easy and does not take a whole lot of time. It could even be adapted to younger kids by using larger stones that could be used as paperweights. The origins of the Blarney Stone's magical properties aren't clear, but one legend says that an old woman cast a spell on the stone to "reward" a king who had saved her from drowning. Kissing the stone while under the spell gave the king the ability to speak sweetly and convincingly.



With the permanent makers write "My Blarney Stone" or "Kiss Me, I'm Irish" on your pretty stone. Attach pin back.

May this give you the power to be as eloquent as any old leprechaun!

A quick and fun pin for girls, boys, women or men to ward off those who would pinch.

Approximate Time: 15 minutes



  1. On your cardboard, I used a cereal box weight cardboard, draw two of whichever pin you are making, Leprechaun or shamrock. Cut one out on the lines and one just inside the lines for your backing.
  2. Place your larger cardboard cutout on your green fabric and draw a line around 1/4 inch larger all around, cut out your fabric.
  3. Lay the cardboard on the wrong side of your fabric, using tacky glue start at one end and glue the fabric over the edges, hold until it stays.

    Go to the opposite end and repeat, keep working at spots across from each other until all is smooth on the front. For the inner corners you will need to clip the fabric into the cardboard.
  4. Take your ribbon and wrap around the knobs, as you wish, tie the rings into your bow and glue a pin back on the back.
  5. For my Leprechaun hat I laid my pattern on the decorative edging of an old pillowcase for the hatband, but you could just as easily wrap ribbon before you glue on the back.

A fun project for children to do and take to school to give to their friends.
