Simple Beaded Shamrock Ornament or Embellishment

I'm always looking for ornament ideas for my feather tree and as soon as I saw the Beaded Shamrocks at Purple Hues and Me I grabbed my bead stash! Love the idea of green pipe cleaners but I was determined to use what was on hand, so sparkly gold it was (Leprechauns like gold, don't they?:@)

The round beads are 6mm, the 2" green ornament has Rondelles, the 2.5" mixed one uses pony beads. Each of my petals has 11 beads, you can make them as big as you'd like.
Since I think this is a quick and fun craft for kids to do, I wanted to share a link to Gail's tutorial. They will love making these shamrocks into a simple necklace or barrette for school or the St. Patrick's Day parade!
'Cause we all know no one wants to get pinched:@)
