****************

Let's get to today's craft, shall we??

Since St. Patrick's is quickly approaching I thought is was finally time to get some cute crafts done. I really don't have much decor so I was happy to finally make some things!! Today I have a fun little St. Patrick's Day craft for you. It is a Leprechaun Hat made out of wood. I thought this was perfect for the holiday and just had to make one!!
To Make This, You Will Need:
-4 square pieces of wood (3=6"x1 1/2" & 1=7" x 1 1/2")
-Wood Glue
-Clamps
-Screws
-Green Paint
-Black Ribbon
-Four leaf clover

How To Make This:
First, you will want to sand the edges of the wood a little bit to make them smooth if they are not already. 

Next, you will need to glue the 3 smaller pieces together with some wood glue. After you get them glued it is best to put a clamp on them to hold them together tight. Let that dry overnight.

After it is completely dry, you will screw the bigger piece on the bottom of the other 3. My handy man hubby helped me with this part!!

Next, you will paint the whole hat green. 

Lastly, embellish with black ribbon and a four leaf clover!

 (The 4 leaf clover looks yellow, but it really is not. It is lime green)

Now you have a cute little Leprechaun Hat for St. Patrick's!!
