It’s St. Patrick’s Day!!!


Wellll…. not yet, it’s tomorrow. Which is a good  thing, because I wanted to share this cute craft with you before St. Patrick’s Day! I know, I didn’t give you too much time to make it, but it is quick and easy, and who doesn’t love that? I had to make a quick item to go with a St. Patrick’s Day outfit, so I stopped by the craft store. I found green glitter foam and a top hat!! I LOVE glitter, but I am not a fan of top hats. Together they actually turned into an awesome hat! Let’s get started. 

You will need:

-scissors

-glittery foam(with the adhesive on the back if possible)st.patrickhat 001

-foam or plastic top hat (not pictured)

-a hot glue gun

Sorry I didn’t take a picture of the top hat before I bedazzled it! It was an afterthought to take pics of the steps, so sorry ahead of time if I skip pics for a couple steps!

Step 1: Cut a strip(or more, depending on how ling your foam is) about 1 1/2 inches to 2 inches wide and glue or stick to the base of your hat.

Step 3

You can leave your hat like this, or you can proceed to add the bow, to add a cute look.

Step 2: Cut two pieces of foam about 4 inches long and 1 inch thick.  Fold  in half, gluing one end of a strip to its other end. Do this for both strips of foam. 

Step 3: Glue each “bow” loops to the desired place on the hat.

Step 4: Cut a foam rectangle and use as center of the bow.

You can leave the bow tie, or you can add the “ribbon” at the bottom of the bow tie. For the ribbon at the bottom, you simply cut the desired lenght of the ribbon out of your glitter foam, and cut a triangle out at one end of each piece.

The finished craft:
