2 x 4 Leprechaun Hat for St. Patrick's Day


St. Patrick's day is one of those holidays that I feel can be over looked.  
Gee, with all the focus on Valentine's Day and Easter no wonder!!
** BTW, it's one month from today**

 I wanted just a few little decorations to set up on my mantle
 for this fun day so this is one that I put together super fast.
I had some left over 2 x 4 wood from a previous project so I asked
my hubby to cut me 3 pieces of wood- one 6" and two 4" pieces.
I then primed and spray painted my wood green.  I mod podged fabric to the front of my wood pieces, let them dry and then I stacked and glued my wood pieces with E6000.  Let it sit over night and then in the morning you can finish it off with some ribbon and a felt shamrock.
So Cute!

We've got a ton of two by four scraps in our basement from my husband framing it out. What a great way to use them up, just pinned this project!
