If you're going out for St. Patrick's Day celebrations, be sure to dress for the part: wear some green somewhere, and show off your fun spirit. We decorated felt shamrocks from a craft store with gold iron-on thread (no-sew embellishment that's quick and easy). Then double-sided tape turns them into temporary appliques on a chapeau. Use your own hat or find cheap hats at Goodwill and dollar Stores. It's a fun and fast way to get into the spirit of things for St. Patty's Day parties.

Materials needed:

  • felt shamrocks from a craft or dollar store (we found ours at a Michaels store)
  • Kreinik Iron-on Ribbon in Burnished Gold 6230
  • Kreinik Iron-on Medium Braid in Gold 6225
  • Kreinik Adhesive Press Cloth (the same size as the plate of your iron)
  • Mini craft iron or household iron
  • Kreinik Treasure Tape 1/2" roll
  • Hat or knit cap

Instructions for decorating shamrocks:

  1. If your iron isn't coated with a non-stick surface, cover the cool iron plate with the Adhesive Press Cloth. This will keep your iron clean.
  2. Turn your iron onto the highest heat setting and let it heat thoroughly.
  3. Begin embellishing your shamrocks by placing the iron-on thread at a starting point, then press with your hot iron for a few seconds until the thread adheres. Continue pressing the thread in a desired pattern.
  4. Pattern ideas: letters, as in "L U C K Y" or follow the outline of the shamrock (as we've done in our model)
  5. Use the double-sided Treasure Tape to stick the shamrocks to your hat.
