Feeling a little Irish? Need a Lucky Hat for St. Patty’s Day? Using only a few Smoothfoam shapes, you can make yourself a Lucky Leprechaun Hat centerpiece in no time. It’s a fun and festive addition to all your green celebrations!
Here’s what you’ll need:
8″ Smoothfoam half-ball
8″ Smoothfoam disc
10″ Smoothfoam disc
Apple Barrel acrylic paints: English Ivy, Kelly Green and Black
Adhesive chipboard letters
Gold paint pen
Craft glue, paintbrush
Mod Podge – gloss finish
Paint the 8″ half-ball and 10″ Disc with English Ivy and let dry. Add a second lighter coat of Kelly Green paint, allowing some of the darker green to show through.
Paint the sides of 8″ disc black and let dry. Glue the 8″ disc flush to the bottom of the painted half-ball, then center and glue that on top of the 10″ disc. Let dry.
For a glossy finish, paint the entire hat with Mod Podge and let dry. Paint the chipboard letters with the gold paint pen, let dry, then glue to the black hat band.
Have a great day and may the “Luck of the Irish” be with you!
