How to Make Felt Shamrocks

Man oh man…this week has just zoomed by!  I can’t believe we’re heading into March already…and let me tell you, spring can’t get here soon enough!

Today I have a fun little felt craft for all you lucky Irish lassies out there.  With some left over felt scraps and a needle and thread, you can easily make this felt shamrock, perfect for hair clips, headbands, or whatever you’d like.

All you need to do is cut out four felt shapes that look like this.  Line them up in a row and weave the needle and thread through the bottom of all four shapes.

Here’s what it looks like after the needle and thread have been weaved through all four pieces of felt.

Finally, take both ends of the string and pull, forcing the four felt pieces to bunch up together.  Tie a couple knots to keep the strings secure and you have a cute little shamrock!  You can cut off the excess threads or use them to help secure your shamrock to a package, headband, or whatever you’d like.

Come back next week for a fun St. Patrick’s Day craft using this cute felt shamrock!

Celebrate creativity every Wednesday with a “Creativi-bee” post, where I share easy craft tutorials, project ideas, and craft collections.
