St. Patrick’s Day is coming – Irish festival celebrated on 17th March.  It is high time to make a Leprechaun hat. This one is not for putting on a head, but it can be used as a container to collect students' works or a decoration of the classroom.

Leprechaun hat

To make a Leprechaun hat you need:
- a bin or a pot
- green and black hard paper
- yellow paper
- green crepe paper
- a double sided tape
- scissors
Use a bin as a side band of the hat and green hard paper to make a brim of the hat. Remember to cut tabs on the inside edge of the brim to attach the brim to the side band / the bin with a double side tape.

    How to make a Leprechaun hat

Then twist green crepe paper round the bin and attach a crown of the hat made with green hard paper.

Finally decorate the Leprechaun hat taping a bond. Make it with a black stripe of hard paper and a yellow square.
