St. Patrick's Day Crafts

Leprechaun Hat for Cookies or Chips

Items Needed:
  • 1/2 gallon Round ice cream container, clean and dry (you do not need the lid)
  • 2 or 3 sheets of Green construction paper
  • 1 sheet of Yellow or Gray construction paper
  • 1 sheet of Black construction paper
  • Scissors
  • Ruler
  • Pen
  • Double stick tape
  • Large circular object (however wide the construction paper is)

  • Trace around the large circular object on the green construction paper with the pen.
  • Cut out the circle.
  • Use the double stick tape to adhere the circle to the bottom of the ice cream container.
  • Cut a piece of green construction paper to fit around the container. You may need two pieces of construction paper or be able to piece them together.
  • Use the double stick tape to adhere the construction paper around the container.
  • Cut a strip about 2" wide out of the black construction paper.
  • Cut a 4" square out of the gray or yellow construction paper.
  • Cut a rectangle in the middle of the gray construction paper about 1 1/4" x 2". Discard the little piece of construction paper. Hint: Fold the square into fourths and cut a square out of the middle of the folded area. Open up the square.
  • Check positioning of the black band by laying it around the hat about an inch above the brim. Cut off any excess construction paper where it meets in the back.
  • Lay the gray or yellow (buckle) over the black band as shown in the photograph. Once the layout is satisfactory, tape in place.
  • Add green tortilla chips, if available, and get ready for your feast.
