Make a St. Patrick's Day Shamrock Bowl

After doing our trinity shamrock craft, my daughter and I were looking for more St. Patrick's day shamrock fun! As some of my facebook fans already know, we recently had the stomach flu here, which left me with an abundance of green 2 liter ginger-ale bottles, so here's what we did!

First, we made these adorable little shamrock bowls.
They were very simple to make!

These shamrock bowls are cut from the bottom of 2 liter bottles.
(This is important. 3 liter bottles are too thick to cut. Trust me ;-)
Here's basically how you cut the bottom:
That's it! Just cut with scissors or a box cutter!
When you turn it around, it's a little shamrock bowl!

I thought these might also be cute to use for a 
Feast of St. Patrick tea:

And may I suggest using 'green tea' ;-) ???

After the bottoms of the bottles were gone, I cut out some
shamrock shapes from the sides of the bottles as well.

These are really quite pretty with a sort of 'stained glass' look.
I punched some holes in the shamrocks and
my daughter strung them onto embroidery thread:

We made a whole garland and them draped it across the mantel!
It's very pretty when the sun shines in!

And I even found a use for my shamrock bowl on my mantel!

I think we're just about ready for St. Patrick's feast day around here! :-)
