Are you ready for St. Patrick’s Day?? You can easily get your dolls ready by creating a St. Patrick’s Day hat using construction paper and other items you may have at home.
To make doll-sized Leprechaun hat you will need:
- your doll
- 2 pieces of Green construction paper
- 1 piece of Black construction paper
- 1 piece of Yellow construction paper
- scotch tape
- a glue stick
- a pencil
- a black marker
- a roll of masking tape or painters tape (to trace you will not need the tape)
- a side plate from the kitchen (to trace)
Step one– Trace the plate as shown on both pieces of green construction paper and cut out
Step two – Use the masking tape to trace a circle in the middle of both your green circles
Step three – Fold your circle in half and cut out your traced lines on both circles
Step four – Using the left over green construction paper, create your band for your hat
Step five – Tape two of the ends together as shown
Step six – Place the paper around your dolls head and tape it into place, remove from your dolls head
Step seven– Make cuts in the bottom edge of your hat all the way around
Step eight – Fold the edges out as shown below and place on one of your circles
Step nine – Tape in to place on the circle
Step ten – Place the other circle over the other circle and glue into place
Step eleven – Cut a two inch strip along the longest side of your black piece of paper and cut a three inch yellow rectangle. Glue it to the center of your black paper band.
Step twelve – Cut out three green hearts from your left over scrap green paper and glue in the shape of a shamrock as shown
Step thirteen – Use your black marker and outline your shamrock, giving it a stem as I have.
Step fourteen – Place the band around your hat and tape in place as shown, if your band is not long enough like mine cut enough paper to cover the gap and glue into place.
Step fifteen – Place on your dolls head and enjoy!
I hope you have a wonderful St. Patrick’s Day and that you have enjoyed this week’s craft.
