Arts & Crafts: Words On A String

photo: King Au

Here's a fun and simple St. Patrick's Day craft that can prevent you from getting pinched!

What you'll need:
  • metal edged vellum gift tag (available at craft stores)
  • green paint
  • thin wire
  • letter beads
  • safety pin
Directions:
  1. Paint the vellum gift tag green.
  2. Punch a small hole on both ends of the tag.
  3. String the letter beads onto the thin wire. Spelling out "Irish Today".
  4. Carefully thread the stringed beads through the holes in the tag.
  5. Attach the wire ends to a safety pin on the back of the tag, creating a brooch.
Easy, right?
