To dye the pasta put it in a ziplock bag and add a few drops of green food colouring. Shake it all around and leave it to dry.

Now print out your small shamrock printable. Cut out as many small shamrocks as you want to add to your pasta jewellery. Punch a hole in one corner of each shamrock using your hole punch.

String alternate pasta and shamrocks onto the string. Tie it on.

Now you're ready to rock St Patrick's Day with your jazzy homemade jewellery.
