I have figured out that you can ruffle just about anything and so I ruffled a shamrock! To be honest I had no idea how this would turn out. It was one of those things that I “had in my head” for a few weeks and HAD to get out! I think it turned out absolutely darling (of course the cute kid with her oh so cute “pose” helps too)!
Ruffled Shamrock Hair Clip
What you will need:
Green Ribbon (mine was from Hobby Lobby)
needle/ matching thread
cut a piece of craft foam into a clover shape (I got mine pre-cut from the Dollar tree)
Hair clip to glue on back or headband/ etc.
Directions: Take the Ribbon and sew a LONG line of thread through one side to make a long ruffle. Once you think you have enough ruffle (it will take a lot) then start gluing it down by starting with the outline of the shamrock.
Once you are finished gluing the outer layer of ribbon- just fill in the rest with more ruffled ribbon until you are through.
At this point to make the ruffles look more like the shamrock I turned the shamrock upside down and tucked the outer layer of ruffles around the backside with the hot glue… this step is optional…
Now just put a clip or secure a headband to the back and it is ready to be worn!
My daughters are safe from any pinching this season! This really turned out adorable!
We like ruffles around here! How about you?
