I love doing holiday crafts.  Especially if they are easy, cost effective and not to extensive.  Because, with an almost 4 year old, a toddler, and a baby, doing anything that is too intricate is sheer madness for me.  So, taking the easier crafting route for St. Patrick's Day this year, I decided to help my chickies fashion some paper plate clover hats that we dubbed "Lucky St Patricks Day Hats".  

These St Patricks Day hats met all three of my current crafting requirements and were so much fun to make, that I can almost guarantee my chickies and I will be making different versions of these for the upcoming holidays.

Oh So Lucky St Patricks Day Hats!

Here's how we did it...

1) On a standard sized paper plate, trace a circle that is about 1 and 3/4 inches from the edge of your plate.

2) Draw your shamrock inside your previously traced circle; making sure that the base of your shamrock touches the line of your circle.

3) Cut out your traced circle (which become the hole for your head) and your shamrock.

4) Placing some sort of paper towel or other throw away material under your hat, paint and decorate the wee little ditty to your heart's desire.

5) Once your hat is dry, bend your shamrock upward, so that it's in a standing position.  Next, try the hat on your child's head.  If it's too small, you can widen it as needed.

6) Strut your stuff in your newly fashioned St Patricks Day hat.

Loves and Hugs,
