Tell me I’m not the only one who can’t believe that St. Patrick’s Day is upon us… The never-ending winter season here in Michigan has me in complete denial about the date on the calendar; a look out the window tells me that it’s GOTTA be like, December… right? If any of you Think Crafts readers follow my blog or instagram, you probably know about my affinity for crochet hearts… I’ve done big ol’ heart pillowsheart garlandsmini amigurumi hearts, and the list goes on… This shamrock pattern?

Shamrock Button Art

St. Patrick's Day Shamrock Button Art

With St. Patrick’s Day right around the corner, I thought it would be fun to have my daughter make this Shamrock Button Art project to put on the mantel.  She has really been in to crafting with buttons lately and was really excited when I brought out a bunch of green buttons for a project.

I traced the shamrock pattern onto the burlap frame and then she used the glue gun to glue all the buttons on.  The easiest way to do this is to start by gluing the buttons around the outline first, then move into the middle.  It is okay to glue buttons on top of one another to cover up all the burlap in your shamrock.

Were you one of those kids that always wore the smallest, most insignificant amount of green that you could on St. Patrick’s Day? For some reason, that was me. I’d wear green nail polish on one finger, or green underwear, or a green necklace hidden in my shirt. I loved fooling people into pinching me on St. Patrick’s Day. You got to pinch anyone who pinched you! Talk about payback. As an adult, I kind of hold on to this tradition. Not to pinch people, but I still avoid my green shirts and dresses and opt for a more subtle but still festive approach to avoid the dreaded pinch. Here are some great ways to avoid the pinching and still celebrate St. Patrick’s Day.
