I don’t know about you guys, but I get pretty excited to see St. Patrick’s day stuff start showing up because it means Spring is right around the corner! Easter is quick to follow (especially this year), and then warmer days are headed our way for sure! All the green for St. Patrick’s Day is like a breath of fresh air and I will embrace as much green as I can at this time of year! 😉
Steff came across a picture of a moss covered hat for St. Patrick’s Day on Pinterest, and we LOVED it. There was no existing tutorial to be found, so of course; we made one. This St. Patrick’s Day door hanger is a breeze to make and costs less than $15!
Here’s what you need:
- White Poster
- Foam board
- X-acto knife
- Sheet moss
- Hot glue gun
- Gold paint and glitter
- Burlap ribbon
Start by folding the poster in half. This will be the pattern for the foam board. Use a ruler and pencil to draw a half hat shape. This is the same technique we have all used to make hearts. Draw the shape with the fold to the inside. It may take a couple tries to get it just how you want.
Here are the measurements we ended up using on our hat: Top- 5 1/2 inches, Tall side- 10 inches, Top brim- 4 inches, Brim side- 3 1/2 inches, Brim bottom- 9 1/2 inches. The picture below should help make sense out of the measurements. 🙂
Next, cut out the poster hat and trace it onto the foam board.
Now for the shamrock! Trace a shamrock shape onto some foam board. (We traced a wood shamrock from THIS project.) Cut out using the X-acto knife.
Then paint the front of the shamrock with glue and sprinkle it with glitter.
