Project of the Day and Giveaway: Chic Shamrock Hair Clip

Happy St. Patrick’s Day everyone! Are you Irish? Today you are! Not only is it great to be Irish (actually or just for today), it’s great to be a crafter during National Craft Month. We’ve been celebrating all month long by bringing you a new project and giveaway everyday. I hope you’ve been enjoying our series.

And because we’re all in the mood for a little green, let’s make a quick (super last minute) project you can wear in your hair today. If this little piece doesn’t bring you the luck of the Irish, we don’t know what will (maybe it’s time to search for that pot of gold at the end of the rainbow?) Let’s get started on this super quick project.

    I think the Shamrock hair clip is cute. It would make a sweet pin. We have green jello in wineglasses for a dessert to celebrate the day.

    On St. Patrick’s day I make grilled ruban sandwich’s. Corned beef brisket slow cooked in a crock pot until fork tender, then I shred it like pulled pork, slap it between 2 slices of rye bread with Swiss cheese, sauerkraut, and thousand Island dressing. Grill it. Eat with a dill pickle. Yum!
