St. Patrick's Day Garden Flag

adventure awaitsTotal cost of project: Less than $10.00 and with LOTS of felt & burlap leftover.


  • Burlap
  • 2 shades of green felt
  • Green/white thread (Iris Craft thread)
  • sewing needles
  • Iron
  • St. Patrick's day felt stickers (you can buy at the craft stores)
  • St. Patrick's day ribbon

You will probably only need less than 1/4 of both shades of green felt. I always overbuy when it comes to felt. This is so that I can build up a good overstock of colors.

Just simply cut out your clove patterns and pin them onto your burlap flag, then sew them on. I used Iris craft thread, because I thought the seam would stand out a little more on the flag and make it look more hand crafted.

Then I sewed the ribbon along all sides of the burlap because the burlap was starting to fray. Common burlap issue. I found for this project it was best to use burlap and felt because they are weather resistant.

After everything was sewed together I used the iron  low setting) to get all the wrinkles out. This was a super easy, fun project that you can do with the kids too! It took me less than 2 hours to complete.
