Easy Shamrock Headband – Happy St. Patrick’s Day

Even though I despise the holiday (I guess being thrown up on and dealing with too many drunk people for too many years will do that).  My daughter really wanted a Shamrock Headband!  Being a good sport I said sure.

This is an easy project it took longer for the glue to dry than to put it together.

Materials:
Head Band (I got 7 at the Dollar Store – I am using the green one)
Green Felt
Cereal Box
Small Shamrock Template
Two Pipe Cleaner
Paint
Glue
Paint Brush

Pretty Green Headband
 Clover cut out of an old cereal box and painted.  I then place it on the felt and traced around it.
I traced two shamrocks on felt – I used a Sharpie so it would show up.  I cut out the shamrocks.

I glued the pipe cleaner to the cereal box.
I then sandwiched the pipe cleaner between the cereal box and the felt.  I twisted the pipe cleaner around a paint brush to make it springy.
I then added Green Extreme Glitter Paint to the front and backside of the clover.
I had some problems last night with my scanner working with the MAC so I don’t have the template for the clovers finished yet.  As soon as they are I will post it.
