Don’t Get Pinched! Guest Blogger DIY Shamrock Accessory

We are excited to have a guest blogger sharing this fun project.  Kadie from the fabulous blog 7 Alive is here to share her creativity.  Kadie is a DIY junkie like many of us as well as a fantastic crochet designer and mother to five kiddos.


This easy project only takes minutes to create, and only a little longer to dry. You can easily create a fun shamrock for your kiddos or yourself to wear on St.Patrick’s Day.

Button Clover WT

You only need a few materials to create your own button shamrock.  These buttons are from the Bright Mix by Laura Kelly.  They are Forest Green and Candy Apple Green.

Button Clover Materials


To make your button shamrock ~

  1. Freehand or stencil a shamrock shape onto green craft felt.  We love the felt best from Kunin Group.
  2. Outline shamrock in fabric paint.
  3. Use craft glue to add buttons stacked large to small on top of shamrock.
  4. Make small bow out of ribbon using craft glue. Glue bow to steam of shamrock. (set aside till all glue dries)
  5. Optional ~ add a pin or hair clip to back of shamrock to make it easy to wear.

This is perfect for boys or girls and will insure no one in your family will get pinched on St. Patrick’s Day. :)

    Why not use a die cut to make it . I have two sizzix die in two size and I’m going to try it to see how it turns out .it will be different but then we may make them into magnets or hang them . I don’t have the same bottons but I’m a crafter and I have a small stash of stuff in my apt. The rest of my stuff is in storage . Long story .
