I think it's super fun to just add little bits and pieces of holiday charm to my home.  For the holidays that aren't as big, I like to do simple things.  Just like this project, I wanted to have some St. Patrick's Day decorations without spending a lot of money.  

How to Make a St. Patrick's Day Flag

Gather Supplies.  You need very little for this project; 2 sheets of felt are the basic supplies.  In my stash, I found some stiff green felt and a white felt sheet.  I had used some of the white felt in a previous project, but there was enough left over.

Cut Felt.  Using a rotary cutter, a cutting mat and a ruler, cut felt into a flag shape.  My flag is about 6 inches tall and about 12 inches long.

Lucky Flag Pattern.  Download lucky flag pattern and print it onto computer paper.  Place it onto the white felt.  It will stay in place pretty well but you can pin the pattern to the felt if necessary.

Cut Letters from Felt.  Carefully cut out each letter.  I cut all the letters with the felt apart and then detail cut each letter individually.

Lay out Letters.  Once the letters are cut from the white felt, place them onto the green flag from the L all the way down to the Y.

Sew white felt letters onto green flag with sewing machine.

Attach Letters.  You can either attach the white letters to the green flag with glue.  Or use your sewing machine.  I sewed my flag letter by letter.  I'm not a great seamstress so if I can do it, anyone can.  As you sew, go slowly.  At the corners, keep the needle down into the fabric, pick up the pressor foot and move the flag to continue the seam.  

Use tacky glue to attach dowel to flag.

Glue Dowel to Flag.  Once the letters are attached to the flag, run a line of tacky glue on the back  along the straight side.  Place the dowel onto the glue and allow the glue to dry.

Tie Ribbons.  Tie a pile of ribbons onto the dowel near the top by the flag.  If the ribbons slide down the dowel, use a drop of glue to hold them in place.
