girl, you know i love a holiday theme garland. so when i saw this tutorial for a shamrock garland i decided to do my own little version. the best part about this DIY? you've another use for that heart punch from valentine's day!
what you need:
heart shaped hole punch
each shamrock needs 3 hearts and a stem. because my heart punch was so small, i decided to glue the shamrock together (rather than use brads which is what the original DIY called for). bending the leaves vertically in the center helps to add a bid of dimension to the garland. finally, i sewed the shamrocks together. (if you want a no sew tutorial, check out the link from the beginning of this post)
i've never looked forward to st. patrick's day as much as i do this year. probably because: 1. my parents and little brother are visiting little old me. 2. we managed to snag tickets to the broadway show "how to succeed in business without really trying."joe jonas, the teenage heartthrob himself, is the lead now. maybe i'll bring a copy of my tiger beat for him to sign..
wishing you shamrock shakes and no pinches this march 17th.
