Shamrock Pin
Total Time 1 hour Ages all-ages

Start your "wearin' of the green" wardrobe with this sweet St. Patrick's Day pin.

What you'll need

  • Green lollipops
  • Aluminum foil
  • Twist tie
  • Plastic wrap
  • Green or white ribbon
  • Tape
  • Safety pin

For a longer-lasting but nonedible pin, unwrap the lollipops and paint them with white glue or polyurethane. Insert the lollipops into a potato half so they stand free when drying. Then arrange the dried lollipops on foil to form the shamrock. Squeeze glue on the sticks where they overlap and allow to dry. Tie bows around the sticks, and add a safety pin to the shamrock's back.

How to make it

  1. Unwrap three green lollipops and lay them on a piece of aluminum foil. With the sides butting and the sticks overlapping, form a shamrock and secure it with a twist tie.

  2. next, cover the candy tightly with a circle of plastic wrap and twist the excess wrap around the sticks. Tie a length of narrow green or white ribbon into a bow around the twist tie.

  3. Use a strong piece of tape to attach a large safety pin to the back of the top lollipop.
