Jeweled Shamrock Pendant
March 17th is St. Patrick's Day and according to tradition if you are not wearing at least a little something green you just might get pinched and why put yourself through that? Let's face it most of us do not look very good in green attire but, there are ways around this. A pretty green pendant to wear on your lapel for the occasion would be fun and festive especially if you make it yourself. I chose the Shamrock or Four Leaf Clover because, According to Irish tradition it represents blessings and who doesn't like getting blessed? This St. Patrick's Day craft project is geared for adults, it is not easy enough for children to do unless an adult is right there helping the child through each step. * * * Supplies: 1- 18 X 22 piece of green felt.
