  • Green felt (or paper or foam)
  • Scissors (Paper and Fabric)
  • Paper
  • Pen
  • Pencil
  • Headband
  • Pipe cleaners – green, 2
  • Hot glue gun

Ok, let’s make a shamrock headband!

Four shamrock shapes cut out of green felt

Step 1:
Draw a shamrock on a sheet of paper. Cut it out. Use a pen and trace your shamrock pattern four times onto felt.

Cut out your felt shamrocks with fabric scissors. (If you don’t have felt, you can also use green paper or foam to make the shamrocks too!)

Step 2:
Curl your pipe cleaners around a pencil to create tight, uniform coils. Start coiling about 3 inches from one end of the pipe cleaner and stop coiling before your reach the other end. (You’ll need straight bits to coil around the headband and attach to your shamrocks.)
