easy shamrock decor

As I finally got around to putting away all of the Valentine's decorations I realized that I didn't really have any St Patrick's Day decorations. I didn't really want to spend any money so this is what I came up with.
I just cut a shamrock out of a piece of paper and then traced it onto some scraps of fabric that I had. I cut two per shamrock and then sewed them wrong sides together leaving a little hole to stuff them. My girls stuffed them for me and then we sewed them up. I tied a little piece of gold ribbon to the stem and here they are. After a few I just cut them out without a pattern and I actually liked them better. With the raw edges and each a little different size and shape they have fun character.

You could put them in a basket like this, use them on a table, hang them in a window or on a door, or hang them from your dining room light. They were fast, very inexpensive, and kid friendly.

I think that they will make it in time. Here is what they look like today, 5 days later.

Thanks for the comment! We love to hear from you. We do moderate them first so that is why they may not pop up right away. Thanks again.
