Create a Leprechaun inspired hat with these simple steps!


What you will need

Step-by-step Instructions:


Step One:

Grab the craft sticks and stick them onto a piece of sturdy card stock to make the hat strong. We need at least 6 sticks to make the hat nice and wide. Then, let's glue one more stick on top to make the brim of the hat.

Step Two:

After the glue has dried, it's time to get creative with our green paint! Grab the foam brush and start painting the craft sticks green.

Step Three:

While waiting for the paint to dry, work on the details of the hat. Take the black card stock and cut a long rectangle for the belt. Then, grab the yellow card stock and cut a square for the buckle. Don't forget to cut a smaller square from the middle of the yellow square to complete the buckle.
