Download, print and cut out Dollar Store Rainbow and Shamrock Sign Patterns. Attach patterns to felt scraps with straight pins and cut out with scissors. If crafting with younger kids, trace shamrock patterns onto to felt with a marker, and then cut out inside the traced line.
Attach larger shamrock to the rainbow craft stick sign using a nickel-size dollop of glue from a low temp glue gun. Squish the center of the felt shamrock with your fingers before the glue is set to create dimension. Repeat with smaller shamrock, attaching on top of the larger shamrock.
Tie black and white baker’s twine into a bow and attach to the center of the felt shamrocks with a glue gun and glue sticks. Pick out a decorative green button and glue it to the center of the bow. If you don’t have green buttons use rhinestones, beads, or even pom-poms.
Measure and cut a 12” length of black and white baker’s twine to create a hanger and tie a small knot in each end. Flip the sign over and attach the hanger to the top right and top left-hand side of the sign with a glue gun and glue sticks.
Let the kiddos create their own color patterns and add their name or the word LUCKY with letter stickers for a personal touch!
