St. Patrick's Day Hat
Enjoy learning how to make this adorable and festive St. Patrick’s Day Hat!

I have always wanted a top hat and today is my lucky day, because I just learned how to make one for not only me but for everyone in my little family. Now, if I can just figure out how to attach it to my cute husband’s shaved head…hmmmm, hot glue??? Hehe!

I want to make sure that my sweet kiddos are safe from those pinching friends of theirs so each of them are going to be getting a fun little hat just like this one. I love the dainty little pink bow embellished with a gem to attach to my little girl’s hat to make it a little more on the feminine side. However, since the boys won’t really be excited about wearing a clip in their hair, I am going to attach their hats to a brooch pin and attach it to their holiday shirts. It will be so much fun! What will you do with your cute St. Patrick’s Day hat?

Learning from YouTube videos is one of my most favorite ways for learning how to make fun and festive hair accessories just like this fun hat ribbon sculpture.

    Ooh, this jaunty little top hat is just too cute! The tiny pink bow definitely adds a sweet touch to girls’ hats.♥

    As for your husband’s hat, I can think of fun ways to attach it to him, but they aren’t appropriate for a G-rated blog!! ::grins evilly:: xoxo
