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! :-)
