Shamrock Accessories

Apologies for the long delay between posts - I am officially back at school, doing my Master of Education degree (part-time and externally) but still working full time. All spare "crafting" time has simply disappeared from my schedule... a small compromise for a better education, I suppose.

But, given that I still work with children in a creative environment, I couldn't pass up the opportunity to do something for St Patrick's Day.

Here are my 5-minute Shamrock Accessories :)

I used:
Green string
A tiny scrap of fabric
A safety pin
A headband
My glue gun

I wrapped the yarn around two fingers to form two diagonally opposite leaves then tied them in the middle.
I repeated the same to create the other two leaves and bound them to the other leaves.
The loose ends were tied together.
I wish I had photos to demonstrate, but my fingers were (literally) tied up.

I used hot glue to attach a safety pin to the back and covered it with a tiny scrap of fabric so the glue had something to attach to.

For the headband, I just tied the loose ends around the band. No glue necessary.

And there you have my St Paddy's Day accessories. I wore the headband and attached the pin to my green sweater. It took me a total of 5 minutes and fully intend to use them again next year :)

Happy crafting!
