To make pins, you can either buy pins with adhesive or use VELCRO® Brand Sticky Back fasteners or other adhesive. I like to use VELCRO® because then I can re-use the pin backs for other things when needed and just pop these back on later.

Cut one small piece of VELCRO® Brand Sticky Back hook (scratchy) side and loop (soft) side for each pin.

Today is March 1st and there’s a collective exhale in Chicago that spring is finally (and hopefully) around the corner. Chicago is one of the best places in the U.S. to be for St. Patrick’s Day. Everyone dresses up in head-to-toe green, even our Chicago River.

May the road rise up to meet you! ?
