Lark Crafts DIY: St. Patrick’s Day

Beannachtam na Femle Padraig! Happy St. Patrick’s Day! Whether you are Irish or an honorary Irish today, I hope everyone enjoys his or her green beer and shamrocks. Being half Irish, celebrating St. Patrick’s Day has been a long-standing tradition in my family. Every year, we eat a big meal of corned beef and cabbage and my grandma’s famous soda bread. We then go to our favorite pub to watch step dancers and hear traditional Celtic music.

It’s truly a celebration. And who wouldn’t want to celebrate with these two cuties! That picture was taken last year, but you can guarantee they will be wearing as much green and cable knits this time around.

 

Shamrock (3)

 

Incorporating some green into my outfit is extremely important today. Although I have on my green pants, it’s always nice to add another pop of color in the form of a broach, hairpin or jewelry. A fun and easy DIY to make is a felted shamrock pin. This is a great way to add some flair…and luck, even if you’re not Irish.

 

What you’ll need:

Green wool felt

Needle and thread

Broach pin

Hot glue gun

 

Shamrock Steps (3)

 

To begin, cut 4 separate leaves like the ones shown above. These will be the shamrock’s petals. They don’t have to be perfect, just make two little “hills” as my nephew calls them.

 

Next sew the leaves together as shown, weaving in and out of the felt. Then, pull the threads together, joining the outermost leaves, and tie the threads tightly at the ends. This is your completed shamrock. You can play around with the leaves to bring the shape together as you like. Using the hot glue gun, glue the shamrock to the broach pin.  Wait to dry, and voila! You now have a lucky little charm help you cheers the day!
