Oh how I love being sponsored by SweetWorks, Inc. I have another fun holiday treat to share with you today. This one is a St. Patrick’s Day Leprechaun hat. I made two for Mia’s teachers this year. Here is how I made them.
- Clear plastic cups
- Gold, Black, and Green card stock
- Cutting mat
- Craft knife
- Plate or cup to trace a circle for the rim of the hat
- Rubber bands
- Plastic wrap
- Green SweetWorks candies
First I cut out large circles for the rim of the hat. I found that a large cottage cheese container worked well for the type of cup I used.
Next, I cut out black strips to go around the hat and two gold squares for the buckle.
Using a craft knife, ruler, and cutting mat, I measured and cut out a buckle.
I glued the buckle to the black strip and fit it around the hat. It should fit snuggly.
Next I filled the cups with green Sixlets candies.
I covered the top with plastic wrap and secured it closed using a rubber band.
You can now turn the cup over without the candy spilling. I taped the circle to the bottom of the hat and tucked in the plastic wrap around the edges.
Lastly, I slipped the buckle and black strip around the hat and secured it with tape. There you have it!
