It has been awhile since we’ve featured a DIY…so while we continue to celebrate St. Patrick’s day, let’s get a little crafty. These cute Shamrocks are meant to be made into little barrettes but you can use these in a number of ways. Get creative – Pin one to a brown paper bag with goodies inside. Glue one to a card to let someone know how “lucky” you are to have them. Attach a few to sticks and place in vases for decoration or use those sticks to decorate a cake. See? There are endless possibilities. So have fun!
