shamrockin’ the stamps

Here are two simple ways to use a shamrock stamp just in time for St. Patty's Day! | www.gimmesomestyleblog.com #stpatricksday #stamp #diy

Since St. Patrick’s Day is just around the corner I thought I would do just one more–or I guess two more simple projects. Earlier this week I went to Hobby Lobby to pick up a few materials that I had been needing and came across a shamrock stamp. I bought it without really having any plan and brought it home. What can I say, the impulsive shopper in me comes out from time to time ok, every time. Knowing that St. Patrick’s Day was only a couple days away I knew I needed to do something that would be quick and easy.

Here’s what I came up with!

  • At this point it is up to you how you would like the towel to look. The stamp went on pretty faint for me, so I chose to outline the shape and leave the inside the faint gold. If you would like you could easily fill the entire shape in.

  • Let it dry the allotted time, wash and enjoy!

I think this could be so sweet for a St. Patrick’s day brunch on some simple cloth napkins. It also would be a pretty cute gift paired with a delicious loaf of Ali’s honey beer bread! So many possibilities!
