Who wants to get pinched? Not me! That's why I always make sure to wear a little green on St. Patrick's Day. It can be hard for kids (and adults) with uniforms and whatnot, so here are 3 quick and easy ways to guarantee you won't get pinched! I love the springiness of clovers.
All you need is some green felt and a few notions that you probably already have on hand.
Draw ItI tried to make some shamrock patterns and stencils for kids, but they proved to be too difficult. Make your own 3-leaf clover by drawing 3 connecting hearts and add a little stem. I like to draw on the back of the felt so when you cut it out, it looks all clean and neat.
Hang ItNothing says Happy Valentine's Day like a Shamrock pennant. This quick as sodabread necklace is made by sewing a button to the middle of the clover and then through both ends of ribbon on the back. Use the same length of thread for both. A shorter ribbon makes a cute bracelet.
Clip ItA little something green in your hair is always nice. This shamrock barrette was made by gluing a piece of ribbon to the top of the barrette. Then, a clover was glued on top. Clip on and away you go! Note - be sure to think about which side of your head you want to wear the barrette before gluing on the clover - you don't want it to be upside down or tricky to put on.
Happy St. Patrick's Day! Here's to not getting pinched!
