Saint Patrick’s Day Hat Craft Step-by-Step Instructions:
Step 1: St Patrick’s Day Hat Craft Pattern
I have attached a link above where you can download the St Patrick’s day hat template from. The templates are in a4 PDF format. So to print the templates you will have to use A4-sized papers.
Use green shade craft paper or cardstock paper to cut out the base for your leprechaun hat.
Use black color craft paper to cut out the belt of the hat. Then, use a yellow color to cut out the hat’s belt buckle.
Step 2: Prepare The Belt Buckle:
From the template, you can see two vertical lines on the belt buckle. Use an x-acto knife to carefully make two slits on the buckle along the two lines.
Take the black paper strip belt, and then put it through the two slits to join the belt with its buckle.
Glue the grey teardrop-shaped piece on the thin part of the hat’s brim.
Step 3: Glue The Belt
Glue the belt on the bottom part of the hat’s base.
Step 4: Join Them Together:
Glue the hat’s top base with the paper hat’s brim.
Step 5: Cut out Paper Strip:
Measure your head using a measuring tape, then cut out a long piece of cardstock paper according to the size of your head.
Apply glue on one end of the strip then join the two ends together to make a ring shape.
You can use sticky tape instead of glue if you want to.

Now finally, take your St Patrick’s Day Paper hat and glue it on the ring base we made earlier. And your Saint Patrick’s Day Hat is ready,

Step 3: Glue Hands:
Glue the three handprint shapes with each other from the bottom part, keeping one in the middle and the rest of the two on two sides.
