After the busy end-of-the-year holiday season and Valentine’s Day, I’m usually both physically and creatively exhausted so unfortunately, St. Patrick’s Day doesn’t get a ton of attention. Of course, that doesn’t mean that holiday gets completely overlooked. We just have to stick to quick and easy ideas like this DIY St. Patrick’s Day lucky pin. I love that this adorable accessory can be made in just minutes and is the perfect way to guarantee that you don’t get pinched on the big day!
DIY St. Patrick’s Day Lucky Pin Supplies:
- Darice Shamrock Pendant
- Darice 1″ Pin Back
- 5/8″ Darice Metallic Gold Ribbon
- 3/8″ Darice Satin Ribbon
- Darice Jump Ring
- Hercules 1/8″ Double Sided Tape
- Darice Hot Glue Gun and Sticks
- Darice Jewelry Pliers
Step 2. Begin to make the bow by attaching the thin green ribbon to the center of the gold one with Hercules double sided tape. This tape is one of my absolute favorite craft supplies! I made a 12″ section of ribbon just in case I had an unforeseen accidents while assembling the bow.
Step 3. Cut a 3″ section of the ribbon, fold both sides over, and secure in middle a small piece of tape. Cut a 4″ piece of thin green ribbon and tie in center. Don’t worry about making it a double knot since the hot glue will secure everything in place on the DIY St. Patrick’s Day pin. Trim away excess green ribbon.
Step 4. Apply a generous strip of hot glue to the top of the pin back and quickly push the bow in place. As always, take caution while working with a high temp hot glue. Glue on finger tips? Ouch!
I love how sweet and little this DIY St. Patrick’s Day pin looks on a shirt or sweater! And since the shamrock pendant comes two to a package, you can make one for a friend and still have enough supplies to make one for yourself. Hope you enjoyed this quick and easy project!
