  • Hot glue gun
  • A pair of scissors


  • 1 piece green crafting felt
  • Green sewing thread
  • Sewing needle
  • 2 Hair Clips you can use alligator, snap, claw, or duckbill


  • Cut 8 rectangular pieces from the green crafting felt that measure 4cm x 3cm. These rectangles will be the leaves of the shamrocks. In this project, we will be creating two shamrock hair clips, with each clip having four leaves.
  • Cut a curvy M-shape on the topmost part of the rectangles. Make sure that the rectangles are oriented in a portrait position before performing this process. Do these for all of the 8 green rectangles.
  • Double thread the sewing needle with green sewing thread.Sew a running stitch on the opposite side of the curvy part of the rectangle. Link four rectangles together using the running stitch.
  • Carefully pull the thread to tighten the spaces on the green felt and create a center in between the leaves of the shamrock.
  • Finally, create the final pull and make a loop to close in the center of the shamrock leaves. There should be no space in the middle.
  • Generously glue the hair clip of your choice to the middle of the shamrock body. 
  • Repeat for a second shamrock hair clip
