This post could also be called “How not to get pinched” on St. Patrick’s day. As you know, I’m a dresser upper for holidays. It used to be a lot worse but I’d say I’m a bit more toned down in my more, shall we say, “mature” years. Mostly because I work from home and I don’t leave the house much. Sometimes you just need to show that you’re not a Scrooge so you’ll add in a bit of red for Valentine’s Day and a dash of green for St. Patrick’s day. Amiright? And usually you don’t want to spend much time on it, so here are 5 easy (nearly glue gunless and sewless) ways to add in that dash of green for St. Patrick’s day.

MAKE SHAMROCK ACCESSORIES
I made a shamrock button cover, shoe accessory, and bracelet. Try one or all!1. Cut a shamrock shape onto chipboard (download template here. Size accordingly) and use as a template.
2. Cut this shape onto a piece of felt.
3. For a button cover, fold the shamrock in half and cut a vertical cut according to how long your button is and place it onto button.
4. For a bracelet, cut two vertical lines and slide a gold ribbon through.
5. For a shoe accessory, use a hole puncher to cut two holes on either side and slide it onto a shoe lace.
