Button Nose Shamrock



Hi! Crafters!

Here is another child’s craft for St. Patrick’s Day that you could quickly make the night before.

Button Nose Shamrock



Materials:  Green, black, and white felt, white glue, scissors, red pipe cleaner

Instructions: 

Cut a small shamrock from green felt.  Cut a ½ inch slit across the center of the shamrock for a button hole.

Cut eyes for the shamrock from the white and black felt.

Glue the eyes to the top portion of the shamrock above the slit.

Cut a 1 inch piece of red pipe cleaner.

Bend the pipe cleaner into a smile.

Glue the smile on the shamrock below slit.

The nose for this shamrock will depend on what kind of buttons you are wearing on your shirt.
