Making Simple Good Luck Charm

Written by Paulo Martirez on Thursday, July 12, 2007

These neat little decorations are terrific to make your house festive. Place the charms on door knobs, on windowsills, anywhere you'd like to see them.

Materials Needed:
• Paper
• Pencils
• Plastic cup-small
• Scissors
• White craft glue
• Paper towels
• Green food coloring
• Rice
• Bowl-medium size
• Water
• Green or white strong, sturdy posterboard
• Hole punch
• Green yarn

1. Using the plastic cup, turned upside down, trace three circles in the shape of a shamrock. Don't forget to include a stem- don't make the stem too thin.

2. Cut out the shamrock pattern and use this as a template for your Shamrock Hangers. Using a pencil trace a shamrock onto the posterboard, cut out with scissors.

3. A day before you plan on making this craft color your rice green by placing the rice in a small amount of water. Add a few drops of green food coloring. Let it soak until desired shade of green has been reached. Drain off the water and let the rice dry on paper towels.

4. Punch a hole on the top of the prepared shamrock. Later you will string a piece of green yarn through this. After the rice is completely dried , put some white glue onto the shamrock-spread a thin put even layer of glue all across the shamrock, be careful to avoid the hole.

5. After the shamrock is covered with the glue sprinkle the colored rice onto the shamrock. Make sure to leave the shamrock lying flat so that when the glue dries all the rice will stay in place. It's best to wait overnight.

6. String a piece of yarn about 4-6 inches long through the hole and tie the two ends together. You now have your good luck charm!
