Hat’s off to St. Patricks Day

As St. Patrick’s Day fast approaches, I wanted to make something fun and festive that really was bright, and showed the true spirit of St. Patrick’s Day.

The kids at school have a holiday celebration and get to dress up, I decided I would add a headband to the hat so Olivia could were it to school.

I started out coveing the whole hat with a some pretty Italian crepe paper, and layering it wiht tool and trim. I wanted to make it fun so I added some peacock feathers and a beautiful florish from Creative Embellsishemtns.

I tucked gears and the velvet Pansies, along with some diamond mesh to add some more bling to the assamblage.

I added a big colourful brooch  amoungst the Dahlia’s.

I added a buckel and Mini Butterfly to the other side and added a special touch of some hat pins to top it off.

The shamerock was just as fun, crepe paper and lots of layering with the gears, velvets, and dahlias.
