St. Patrick's Day Little Leprechaun Hat with Annie

Posted on February 26 2020

Hello Crafty Friends - Annie here with a fun decoration for St. Patrick's Day!
This cute Leprechaun Hat is perfect for your table decore or mantle.  It's small enough for a child to wear while watching your local parade.
I used a cut file from Simply Crafty SVGs for the hat called you guessed it Leprechaun Hat. Along with some of our wonderful Rinea Foil Paper.

 
Materials Used
Recollection Brand 65lb Cardstock: Emerald Green & White
Xyron Creative Station Lite
Scotch 3M Craft GlueBrother Scan N Cut Electronic Machine

Let's get started!

I start by downloading and cutting all the pieces of the Leprechaun hat using the Brother Scan N Cut. I then ran the Rinea Emerald/Emerald Starstruck Foil Paper hat panels and Shamrock, Rinea Ebony/Ebony Starstruck Foil Paper hatband, and Rinea Gold/Gold Glossy Foil Paper hat buckle through the Xyron Creative Station Lite. 

I then start adhering the hat base panels together. I apply a bit of adhesive to the tabs and then press the next panel onto the tabs. I continue this for all ten panels. Until I form the crown of the hat.

 

Next, I adhered the top panel of the crown to close it off.  I add some adhesive to one of the tabs and attach the top panel. Once, attached I continue to add adhesive to the rest of the tabs and pressing the top panel into place. I flip the hat over and press the tabs from the inside against the table to make sure they are secure.

  

Then, I form the brim of the hat.  I add a bit of adhesive to one of the tabs. I press the two panels together. You will have a ring.

  

I then flip the crown upside down and attach the brim to it. I add a bit of adhesive to one of the tabs and press onto the inside of the crown. I then move to an opposite tab to repeat the process. I continue all around the brim until it's completely attached to the crown. 

  Next, I flip the hat right side up and start attaching the Rinea Emerald/Emerald Starstruck Foil Paper hat panels. I take my time to center each panel on the hat. You should have a nice border all around each  Rinea Emerald/Emerald Starstruck Foil Paper hat panels.

  

 Then, I attach the two pieces of the hatband which I have cut from Rinea Ebony/Ebony Starstruck Foil Paper and plain white cardstock*(you don't have to do this I just wanted it to have more firmness). I then add some adhesive to the back of the hatband in a few sections and press onto the hat. Making sure to leave a bit of space at the base of the brim. Next, I layer the Shamrock which I have cut from Rinea Ebony/Ebony Starstruck Foil Paper onto the buckle which I have cut from Rinea Gold/Gold Glossy Foil Paper. I attached the buckle onto the hatband using some tiny Zot Dots. 

  

 

Now, the little Leprechaun Hat is complete! 
Ready to be displayed in your home or office.
