Even if you aren’t Irish, St. Patrick’s Day is the day that everyone is Irish! Everyone will be shouting “Kiss me I’m Irish!” and pinching people who aren’t wearing green (for luck of course).  Let’s go on the hunt for some four leaf clovers and that pot of gold at the end of the rainbow! Stir up a little leprechaun mischief and serve up some Irish food (like these fun St. Patrick’s Day cupcakes for the kids) and drinks (Boozy Shamrock Floats for the adults). 
 
We are going to have fun with the kids pretending to be Irish on St. Patty’s Day. A good irishman (or woman) needs a good Irish hat and what is more fun than creating a cute little Leprechaun Hat Headband to wear for St. Patrick’s Day.
 

How to make a Leprechaun Hat Headband for St. Patrick’s Day fun! 

What you will need: 

 

Leprechaun Hat Headband Craft
 
1. Using the cup as a guide, trace a circle on the back of your glitter card stock, making it slightly bigger than the cup. Cut out the circle and hot glue your cup to the glitter side of it. This is the brim of your hat.

2. Make a band on your hat by gluing on a black strip of paper and yellow “buckle” you’ve created out of your rectangle of paper.

3. Next, let’s create some cute pipe cleaner clovers! Loop the end of the pipe cleaner around your finger. Twist another loop across from your first loop like a bow. Continue making loops around your finger until you have 4 loops. Twist the remainder of the pipe cleaner down to be your clover stem.
