Colored Green Hot Melt Glue Sticks, 7/16: diameter
Silicone heart mold
X-acto knife (optional)
Non Stick glue pad
When your glue gun is hot and ready to use, fill three heart molds with green hot melt glue. Complete one heart before going to the next to create a uniform heart without layers. Just like baking, be sure to tap the bottom of your mold on the table to help the glue settle and get rid of any air pockets. Allow the glue to cool.
Once the glue is cool, carefully remove the hearts from the molds. If you have any excess glue on the edges of the hearts, take an X-acto knife and trim those pieces off. Now that we have three clean hearts, we can start to assemble our shamrock.
Place a good amount of hot glue on the bottom point of your heart, then stick another heart right next to it so that the bottoms are touching each other. Take your third heart and place a good amount of glue on the bottom and then place the heart next to the other two. All three hearts should have the bottom points touching each other. You’re most likely will get a glob of glue in the middle. Leave the glue in the center of the shamrock, as that will help hold your hearts together.
Lastly, take a thick line of hot glue and curve it slightly on your non stick glue pad and place your group of hearts on top of the line so it becomes the stem of your shamrock. Wait for the glue to cool and carefully peel your completed shamrock off the silicone pad.
Make more shamrocks and use as fun home decor, as part of another craft, or as a give-away to wish someone luck. See how to make the gold coins below, and you might even catch a leprechaun!
