Under My Umbrella

I’m excited to leave my umbrella for the day and guest blog here.  Thank you Kelli and Kristi!
I love hanging out in places where cuteness surrounds me

 

A few of my friends have mentioned lately they don’t decorate for St. Patrick’s Day.
I want those of you who are St. Patrick Day decorationless (yep, I made that word up) to know YOU ARE MISSING OUT!  St. Patricks Day is all about green, rainbows, gold, leprechauns and kissing.  Yep, I said kissing.  Even if you’re not Irish you can pretend to be for a day πŸ™‚  Now I’m not a St. Patrick’s Day fanatic but I do think it’s a fun holiday.  Since Easter is late this year we all have a little time to explore some green….
Today I’m going to tell you how to make a quick, easy decoration for St. Patrick’s day…
this cute little leprechaun hat:

Grab yourself a 4×4 wood block and a 6 inch piece of 2×4.  Sand and paint your block.  I painted mine with Creamcoat’s leaf green.  I then picked out some of my fav green polka dotted scrapbook paper & patterned scrapbook paper for the buckle and ribbon.  Mod podge the paper on.  Weave the ribbon in your paper and glue it to your hat.  Glue your wood pieces together with Gorilla Glue.  Pair with a cute shamrock {tutorial found HERE.}You’re set and ready to WOW everyone with your holiday decor!

 

Good luck creating!

 
 
Thank you for the cute tutorial, Melinda!
Isn’t that project just DARLING?
No more excuses not to decorate for St. Patty’s Day, folks! πŸ˜‰
