Step 1: ST. Patricks 4 Leaf Clover Hair Clip

You will need:
craft glue
Green felt
hair clip

First cut out 4 clovers and one small strip for a stem
 then a  small circle enough to fit the end of the clovers on to glue.
Glue the stem under the circle then glue the hair clip on.

Step 2: Organic Green Playdough

How to make green play dough you will need:
1 cup flour
1/2 cup salt
1 cup water
2 tablespoons oil
2 tablespoons cream of tartar
beet,spinach,and carrot juice

Mix flour, salt and oil, and slowly add water. Cook over medium heat, stirring until
dough becomes stiff. Turn out onto wax paper and let it cool. Knead the playdough with
your hands until of proper consistency. Use as is, or divide into balls and add a few drops
of the vegetables juices to make green.

Step 3: Leprechaun Dog Hat

O.K. since St. patricks day is coming up I decided to make my sisters dog a leprechaun hat.
Now the things you will need are:
felt- 2 Green,Black,Yellow,
craft glue

                        Use green felt and  cut 7 inches high & 6 inches wide.
Then cut a green square 5 3/4 inches wide & 6 inches long.
Take 7 in to 6 in green felt  you cut out earlyer and roll it up to make a tube and gule.
Then take your 5 3/4 inch to 6 inch felt green  and cut it to make a circle then in the center cut a circle the size of the tube circle  and glue it to the circle tube.
Next take your black felt and cut 11 inches  then rap it around the the tube and glue
Now you will take your yellow felt and  cut 1 inch by 1 inch then cut in the middle a square and glue the your yellow buckle you just made to the black piece.
Almost done cut from your green felt  a 4 inch to 4 inch then  put the piece on top of your hat and glue then after its done drying
cut around it.
One more adjustment now  use entheir elastic string or a small strip of green felt about 8 inches long to how wide you want it to be but try not to make it really thin. Then glue it on the bottom side of the hat and your done.

Step 4: Green Tea

Whats better in the moring than a cup of green tea
you will need:
measuring cup
loose green tea leaves
Where to get loose green tea leaves: 

you can get them at Whole Foods, Trader Joes  or local Asian supermarkets 

How to make it:

                  O.k. the water  it's best to use spring water or filtered water. Distilled water
 ruins the integrity of the green leaves plus it takes away the health benefits. 
Now that you have your teapot and a portion of loose green leaves per milliliters of water make a use of a measuring cup
when you put the and green tea leaves in the teapot let it boil reducing the temperature of 85 degrees celsius before you drop the leaves in let the leaves boil for a minute, Well you are done so enjoy your green tea.

Step 5: Green Paint

This is pretty easy to make all need you is;
yellow and blue paint

      Then mix them togther and it will make green!

Step 6: Green Dye From Coneflower

Now snice I was make green  things I thought make green dye,so that every thing will be green
now go outside and see if you have coneflower if so 
Blossoms should be in full bloom, berries ripe and nuts mature. Remember, never gather more than 2/3 of a stand of anything in the wild when gathering plant stuff for dye Chop plant material into small pieces and place in a pot. Double the amount of water to plant material. Bring to a boil, then simmer for about an hour (for plant dyes) 4 parts cold water to 1 part vinegar

                       I think it works best with fabric.
