Easy DIY idea and tutorialPrint up the pattern (you can get assembly instructions here – but there is not a need for this pattern.)

Because you’ll be tracing the pattern pieces printing on cardstock works best.

Easy DIY idea and tutorialTrace the shamrock or clover pattern pieces onto the satin fabric – there is no need to use a washable marking pen – a regular pen will work nicely.  Cut out the shamrock pieces. Snip a short slit into the leaves of each piece. Note: if you want a smaller clip, start with a lower number template piece (for example 4), if you want a larger clip use a higher number (like 6).

 

3-  Singe the edges

Easy DIY idea and tutorialThis step should be done by an adult – and cautiously.  Light the candle.  Holding the edges of the shamrock pieces neat the flame – carefully singe the edges taking care not to light the fabric on fire or burn yourself.  Take your time with this step – you may want to try this on a practice piece before attempting it on your cutout shamrocks.

 

4 – Nest

6 – Add bling
