DIY Felt Shamrock Brooch

I hope you didn't forget that St Patrick's Day is less then a month away! Here is our first DIY for the celebrations-- felt shamrock pin! A super easy way to brighten up your office outfit or to make for the kids.

All you need are various shades of green felt, a glue gun, and a brooch pin and you've saved yourself from getting pinched for not wearing green.

It just adds a little something extra to have the shamrock in different shades, we chose our Acrylic Felt Emerald Green, Apple Green, and Neon Lime. Print out or draw a large, medium, and small shamrock. Our three sizes were 3", 2.5", and a 2" shamrock. Use the templates as a guide to cut out the shape from felt. The Emerald Green for the large size, Apple Green for the medium size, and the Neon Lime for the small clover. We drew a cute face on the smallest one, but this is totally optional. Stack and glue the different sizes onto one another and then glue on the brooch pin on the back for a pretty three toned four leaf clover! You can make a variation of two toned and the three toned garland out of these or even turn them into straw toppers.
