A DIY Shamrock Barrette for St Paddy’s Day

Whether you’re Irish or not, St Patrick’s Day is a great excuse to have a party. Go green this Sunday and join in the fun with this lucky little DIY from Paper and Ink

You’ll need:
Green felt
Needle and thread
Blank barrette
A modified version of this template from Martha Stewart (Brenna, the genius behind Paper and Ink, changed the shape of the petals, giving them 2 lobes each and flipped them, preferring the shape of the bottom of the flower for the clover).

  • Cut 4 leaves in the shape shown above. Brenna’s were about 2 cm (3/4 of an inch) tall and nearly an inch wide. 
  • Sew the leaves together as shown above, and tie the threads together tightly at the ends. 
  • Sew to a barrette, and clip on your little lucky charm.
