happy st. patrick's day!
Here's a little something to ensure you do not get pinched on St. Patrick's Day.
A sweet little paper carnation boutonniere with green trimmings...
totally inspired by Family Chic! Feels very lucky!
This is my kind of craft--easy, all the supplies were on hand and super cute...not to mention functional--in terms of not getting pinched...
supplies you'll need:
muffin/cupcake paper liners/cups
floral tape or ribbon & hot glue gun
water colors (specifically green)
pin backs or a safety pin or a straight pin
|tape or glue stem 1/2 way up from bottom. Let dry.|
|pull petals apart and shape into flower.|
paint edges with green water color. the muffin wrappers I used seem to have a bit of a coating on them; they weren't straight paper, so that's why I got the look I did. It didn't become a solid green but I think it works....let it dry.
add a little bow and either hot glue a pin back to the back of the stem or use a safety pin or a (careful) straight pin. Attach to the lapel of your favorite wee leprechaun.
