Celebrate St Patrick’s Day and pin a colourful homemade rosette to clothing, bags and accessories to mark the day.
You will need
3 small green doilies
2 cupcake cases
1 green button
Green ribbons – we used 3 (check!)
Hot melt glue
Needle and matching green thread
To make layer and glue the centre of the doilies and cupcake cases together, starting and finishing with a doily at the top and bottom. Taking a length of thin ribbon make a four-looped bow (a normal bow, tied twice). Cut the ends of the ribbon so the bow fits neatly into the centre of the doily and glue in place. Glue a button on top to cover the knot. Gather the remaining ribbons, fold in half and secure together at the loop end with a couple of stitches. Cut the ends of the ribbon to the desired length. Using the hot melt glue, stick the ribbons onto the back of the rosette, followed by the brooch pin. Leave to dry.
