It's the week of St. Patrick's Day, so what better time to share a DIY that incorporates Guinness beer bottle caps and shamrocks. I consider this to be a bit of a hardware store craft, because that's where you can get almost all of the tools and materials for the project.
This is a nice project to make in bulk because it's inexpensive and it doesn't take much more time to make a half dozen than it does to make one.
- flower press
- ICE Resin
- 7/16" small screw eyes
- transparent tape
- parchment paper
- wire nail
- 2 small pairs of needle nose or round pliers
- scrap piece of wood
- small disposable cup
- disposable plastic utensil
- key ring
Surprisingly, even though we live in the middle of the Sonoran Desert, I have a fairly large patch of shamrocks that randomly appeared in the backyard. If you are not so lucky, you can also buy them to grow as a houseplant at many nurseries.
After 24 hours, remove the tape. insert a ring into the screw eye and your lucky shamrock key chains are ready to use.
