This is the first hat I’ve ever made, and boy was it ever a hoot! To enter the challenge that Kerry (YT: kerryluvcat) has going on through St. Patrick’s Day, I threw caution to the wind and just started pulling out everything I had that was green, which wasn’t much.  The sample Valentines hat that I had from a Canadian friend, Shiela (YT: Shiela McNabb), which she had made for my “Love the Earth Upcycling Challenge,” served as a great template.

St. Patty 1With felt shamrocks from Brittany Pochick, beautiful patterned paper from Lisa (YT: Maggie2005cupcake), green Stickles from Jenn (YT: ScrapbenaCreations), and flowers from Marla (YT: Marla H) and Bev (NewCrafterBev), I was ready.  Add from my stash some green cardstock, hot glue, tape runner adhesive, some metallic green Sakura Gelly Roll pens, and a couple Martha Stewart hydrangea punches, and I was unstoppable.

The piece de resistance? Some goofy feather and glitter ball sprays I had picked up at Michaels in an post-Halloween clearance sale. I was so happy I had finally found a project for those sprays; they had been mocking me from my pens and scissors holder for months now: “Why did you buy us? You’ll never use us.  A sale item is not cheap if you don’t use it.”

St Patty 0.2This is the Youtube post where I share the details (and add this picture of Bandito wearing a little teeny tiny St. Patrick’s Day bowler hat, which was also from Brittany):
