Get the kids involved in creating homemade St. Patrick's Day decorations. Terra-cotta leprechaun hats only require a few supplies and will bring a touch of Irish luck to the whole family. This craft is a hands-on project that's perfect for classroom parties or rainy day family fun!

Shop at Dollar Tree – Here's What You'll Need:

Step-by-Step Directions:

  2. Set the pot upside down and secure a length of black ribbon around the pot with hot glue, just above the ridge.
  3. Cut thin lengths of the gold sequin ribbon to form a small square the same width as the black ribbon.
  4. Secure the gold sequin ribbon to the black ribbon with hot glue to create the belt buckle.
