Painting hearts is easy, if you need a refresher course you can see Painting Hearts here

A shamrock, or clover, is formed simply by turning the hearts, and placing points together

S pattern thepaintedapron.com

The “S” pattern is a good fill pattern, just make the S shape over and over, changing the S position, until the space is filled

Spray or brush paint on the clothes pins and add words with a paintbrush or the point of a paint pen nib

    • hi Ellen! I got my chalk ink pens from amazon.com, but they might have them at Hobby Lobby, I just haven’t looked~ they work great on chalkboards, comes right off with windex…they work on other surfaces too, lots of fun to play with! Sitting here hoping the power stays on during yet another winter storm scare ๐Ÿ™‚ Stay cozy~

    I’m thinking St. Patty’s Day is going to sneak up on me and I’ll have nothing green though I am tempted by your chive shamrocks.
