Quick Last Minute Shamrock Hair Pins

Late last night I realized that I had St. Patrick's Day stuff that I had yet to utilize.
I had sorta forgotten I had even bought it.

Well, it wasn't much.
Just a package of sparkly shamrocks in two sizes and two colors.

I also remembered I had a package of 80 bobby pins from the dollar tree.

So I got out my hoy glue gun and got to work.

I peeled the backs off of the smaller shamrocks and stuck them to contrasting larger shamrocks.

Then, without removing the sticky back, I glued them to the bobby pins.

VOILA! C'est Finis!

I am going to take them to the girls at my Women's Study on Thursday.
I also am giving a few to the little girls I know.

With the last three large shamrocks I made myself an extra special one.

Silly desert wind
See monster back there being a good boy.
