"May I see you grey and combing your children's hair."
Well, I am not even going to tell you what my husband said about this craft, but suffice it to say, he is not a fan. But I will have you know that the little girls spent the whole day wearing these last week when I made them, and their charms have yet to wear off. So take that, hubby!
I took about a 2 inch wide strip of felt and cut out little elongated half circle shapes. Later, I decided that the scalloped top was cuter and more shamrock-ey. Yes, I just invented the word shamrockey. So you will see that I changed that in the later pics.
Anyways, run a needle and thread on through the bottoms of four pieces of felt...
Pull your thread tight until the felt all cinches up, and secure everything in place with a couple of stitches...
(See how the edges are more scalloped now)
Stitch on a little piece of felt for a stem...
Now use a little circle of felt, place it on the underside of your headband. Add some hot glue, and attach the shamrock to the top.
I figured out the cost for these: Approximately 37 cents a piece. The headbands were 5/1.50 at Forever 21, and the felt was 20 cents a sheet at WalMart. So, no joke, you could make these for everyone you are possibly going to see on St. Paddy's and keep it under 5 bucks. That's my kind of craft. Enjoy!
