St. Patrick's Day necklaces

St. Patrick’s Day is almost here! I am not Irish but I love making cute and fun crafts. I am making St.Patrick’s Day necklaces with my students. It’s so easy and they are so cute! I dye noodles green; this website has great directions on how to dye noodles http://www.craftycrafty.tv/2008/08/how_to_dye_pasta_for_crafting.html the picture is what they turn out like after you dye them.
Then I just use my die cut machine and make tons of clovers. If you don’t have a die cut machine at your school you could have the students cut clovers themselves from a pattern. I then cut string and tie it thick at one side and put tape side ways so nothing falls off one end. After threading it all on the string you have a nice green St. Patrick’s day necklace. Here is a picture of the final product modeled by my wonderful husband and cute dog Pepper.
