Shamrock hairpin

Shamrock hairpin

St Patrick's Day is a fun day to celebrate all things Irish. So go green with this simple shamrock hairpin – a simple way for your child to dress up for March 17. All you need is a bobby pin, a button and some green felt – this FREE template will make it even easier.

What you need:

Number of players:


Print out the small shamrock printable template and the medium shamrock template; cut out one small and one medium shamrock.

Now use the shamrock shapes as a guide to make one small dark green shamrock and one medium lighter-coloured green shamrock.

Lay the small shamrock on top of the larger one. Place the button on top. Sew the button to both layers of felt. 

Use a dab of hot glue to attach the shamrock decoration to a bobby pin.

And there you go – it's easy being green!
