DIY: Pinch Proof Shamrock Pin

Disclosure: This is a sponsored post as a participant in the Walmart Moms Program.


When I was in elementary forgetting to wear green to school on St. Patrick’s Day happened a few times. I remember I got pinched so many times I wished I had found a luck Shamrock.

Now that Little Man is in school I try to plan ahead especially when it comes to holiday celebrations whether big or small I like for him to be able to participate and have fun.

This year I made our very own Pinch Proof Shamrock Pin. It’s easy to make and fun to put together!

One Gold Glitter Foam circle measuring 2 1/2 inches
and a Felt Shamrock


Using glue- glue the pattern paper circle onto the golf glitter foam circle. Hold until to reassure it is glued.


Now glue your felt shamrock onto the circles. Let it dry and check to be sure it is glued firmly
