Four Leaf Clover Pin

I know, St Patrick's Day isn't till next month, but oh so often, I blink and suddenly all time has gone. So I'm doing this now instead of suddenly realizing it's the day before St. Patrick's day and I never got around to it.

A quick and fairly easy project. Made from felt and using multiple hearts. I put a pin on the back but a hair clip would work great also.

Start by cutting four hearts out of dark green felt. Mine are only about 1 inch at their widest and one inch tall.
Next cut four smaller hearts out of light green felt.

To attach everything you could use glue, but I opted for hand sewing with light green thread.

Next I cut a really small heart out of the dark green felt and sewed it onto the middle of the four "leaves". 

For the back I used a strip of dark green felt and sewed it over the pin to hold the pin in place.
Be careful that when you are sewing on the back that you only sew to the back dark green leaves, not all the way through to the light green or you'll have random threads all over.

Simple as that!
If you use a hot glue gun it will likely go faster. Regular craft or sewing glue will work also but take longer to dry.
I wanted the threads for mine for the extra pop, so I sewed it.
