Lucky Shoe Charms: Random Thoughts of a SUPERMOM

Greetings, everyone! I had to leave town for a few days for a family emergency, but I have an adorable guest post for you today. My friend Kelli from Random Thoughts of a SUPERMOM is going to share a fun St. Patrick's Day Craft with you all. Take it away, Kelli!

Hi! My name is Kelli and most days you can find me blogging at
Random Thoughts of a SUPERMOM!

I am a wife and stay-at-home mom of three boys. I love to be crafty, make yummy {and SUPER fun} food, share pictures of my cute boys, and blog about the everyday happenings of my life as a SUPERMOM! When Amanda emailed me and asked if I would do a guest post this week, I knew that I wanted to share this easy, crafty St. Patty's Day tutorial. I love all holidays, and I love doing fun little things to make them special:)

One of the worst parts about boys {in the fashion world anyway}, is the lack of accessories, especially when it comes to holidays. Little girls can wear hairbows, necklaces, frilly socks, purses.....well, you get the picture! And what do boys have?!? Maybe a hat or cute tie if you are lucky!

So when I started trying to come up with something for my boys to wear for St. Patrick's Day, I knew I was going to have to think outside the box a little. My boys wear uniforms to school so a cute shirt is out of the question, and I'm pretty sure they would both refuse to wear a tie {even though I think a tie would be absolutely adorable}. So decided to bling up their shoes with some Lucky Shoe Charms!

I started with two colors of felt and a shamrock template.

Cut one color felt a little larger than your template and cut the other color felt a little smaller to make a layered shamrock.

Use a hole punch and make a hole through both layers of felt.

Sew the two pieces together, either with a straight stitch or a decorative stitch. You could also simply use hot glue to hold them together, but I like the little bit of contrast from the white thread.

Tie the charm onto your little guy's shoe and they will be pinch free on St. Patty's Day!

Thank you so much, Kelli, for being willing to share a project with Serenity Now readers today!

Please be sure to visit Kelli at Random Thoughts of a SUPERMOM. She has such a fun blog, and is a wonderful mom--always planning fun activities!

Please keep my family in your prayers...going on a "roadtrip" with the kiddos is always an interesting venture....I'll be sure to update you all when we are home and settled back in.


  1. This is a great idea for little boys. I am sure they will have fun wearing this to school.

  2. Thanks so much for having me over Amanda! I hope you have safe travels and sleepy girls on your trip:)

  3. So cute, as always! Kelli always has the most wonderful, creative ideas!

    Happy Safe Traveling, Amanda!!

  5. Such a cute idea!!! Thanks for sharing.

  6. What a cute idea for a child. I'll bet that all of the kids in each of Kelli's boys' classes will want their own lucky charm.

  7. Hey Amanda--

    I've been out of town all week with almost no computer access, so I've been out of the loop. I so hope everything is okay! I'm sorry I didn't know that you were dealing with an emergency. I pray that you are doing well and that you are filled with deep peace whatever the situation. Take care of yourself! Love you!!


I love to hear your feedback! Please feel free to leave comments...just don't send me spam asking me to buy stuff off your website! I've got three kids and no money to purchase your magic weight-loss pill or bust enhancement, or whatever else you might be selling. Thanks, and I look forward to hearing from you! :)
