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 wear it to school.
I started out coveing the whole hat with a some pretty Italian crepe paper, and layering it with tulle and trim. I wanted to make it fun so I added some peacock feathers and a beautiful florish from Creative Embellishments.
I tucked in gears and 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 shamrock was just as fun, crepe paper and lots of layering with the gears, velvets, and dahlias.
So Happy St. Patricks Day for all my Irish friends and to all that help celebrate the great heritage and traditions. Enjoy and Be safe.
