About a month ago I found this little bag of twelve wooden shamrock shapes at Hobby Lobby for $1.99. Since then, I've been brainstormig what exactly to do with them. I like to make pins for the ladies we visit teach in March...something cute because green can be SO unbecoming...even on St. Patrick's Day!!
Today I did a base coat of an avocado green and sanded and antiqued the shamrocks. When they were dry, I used the head of a pin to make dots in khaki, black and ivory in a little grouping of three all over the green shamrock.
Then I tied on a little gingham ribbon, glued a pin back on, and added it to a notecard with one of a whole collection of Irish blessings I found here.
I think I might make some more for my girlfriends with March birthdays...
