All you need are 4 craft materials!

Materials and Supplies Needed:

  • green ribbon  (I used 3/8″ grosgrain ribbon )
  • button (of your liking)
  • green thread
  • safety pin (for lapels, you may find at Craft stores)
  • ruler
  • needle
  • Scissors

Directions for making a St. Patrick’s Day pin:

  1. Cut the ribbon 15 inches long.
  2. Fold the ribbon in half making about a 1″ loop at the top.
  3. Secure this loop in place with a stitch or two of thread, hiding your knot at the back. Keep your needle and thread attached as we will stitch again after the next two loops. (Step 1 in the picture below)
  4. After the loop is secured make another loop to one of the sides. Again, tack this down in the middle with a stitch or two of thread. (Step 2 in the picture below)
  5. Make the third loop off to the other side. Tack this down as well. (Step 3 in the picture below)
  6. Using the same needle and thread, sew a button to the middle, where your stitching is. The button should hide where the sewing is. Secure the button with a knot at the back. You can cut your thread now. (Step 4 in the picture below)
  7. Even out your extra ribbon (that form the shamrock’s stems) by cutting the edges at an angle. Place a safety pin (for lapels) on the back of your shamrock and you’re ready to wear it.
