{Simple Shamrock Headband Tutorial}

I completely let Valentine's Day slip by me this year --
I didn't do ONE craft. (can you believe that?)

So this time I'm not letting that happen!
St. Patrick's Day is just around the corner --
and I'm going to be ready!

I {LOVE} headbands!
I wear one everyday ... really - every day!
So it only seemed appropriate that I have one to ward off that sneaky little leprechaun! 
(or mean little pinching children!!)

Isn't it cute?

Want to make one for yourself?
What you need:
- Felt Sheets (3 different shades of green)
- Shamrock stencil
- Hot Glue
- Embellishment for center
- Headband

1. Cut out your Shamrock stencils. I wanted 3 different sizes, so I downloaded a Shamrock shape from the Silhouette Store and let my Silhouette cut out the shapes on cardstock.However, if you don't have a Silhouette you could definitely just google an image, print it out and cut it out!


2.  Cut out your shapes! Hint: Be patient & use sharp scissors!! 


 3. Hot Glue all three layers together! I did mine darkest to light, but you could do whatever! 


*and yes - my glue gun really looks like that. It's disgusting well-loved!
 4.Add an embellishment of your choice to the center & hot glue it to your dollar store headband! 


5. Admire your fancy schmancy simple headband! 


Happy St. Patrick's Day!
(early ... cuz I'm on the ball. whoop whoop)
