    Finishing: Cut 3 strands of Kelly Green, each 10 inch long. Thread 1 strand into blunt needle. Leaving a long tail, thread needle (gently) through center of Pom Poms. Remove needle, do not trim ends of strand. Repeat with other 2 strands. Pull ends of all 6 strands until they are even and Pom Poms create a shamrock shape. Knot strands together. Divide strands into 3 groups of 2 strands each and braid to desired length for stem. Wrap end of braid with a strand of Pea Green, then trim ends evenly. Cut a 24 inch strand of Pea Green. Wrap Pea Green strand several times around top of braided stem, then thread strand into blunt needle and embroider a lazy daisy stitch onto each Pom Pom. Knot off strand on the back of Shamrock, then glue on pin back.
