With elementary aged kids in the house, St. Patrick’s Day is all about “not getting pinched.” Of course, a dose of green is all it takes to avoid it. Whether it is a spot of green on a shirt, a cute four leaf clover face paint, or a hair accessory, St. Patrick’s Day can be saved for kiddos with just a little bit of DIY!
This St. Patrick’s Day Top Hat Headband can be used for a photo booth prop for a St. Patrick’s Day party or as just a St. Patrick’s Day accessory. It is easy to make and great for even a beginner Cricut crafter. I love the texture of the exposed corrugated card board on this project!
- Cricut Maker
- Cricut LightGrip Cutting Mat (If cutting mat is not very sticky, then a combination of a Cricut LightGrip Cutting Mat for card stock and a Cricut StandardGrip Cutting Mat for corrugated card board may be used.)
- Cricut Corrugated Cardboard Set, Bright Sampler (specifically need the green piece)
- Cricut Kraft Board Sampler (natural color)
- Cricut Card Stock (yellow and green)
- Cricut Knife Blade
- Cricut Fine Point Blade
- Plain head band
- Hot glue gun and hot glue sticks
- Small length of ribbon
The Cricut Maker is versatile, cutting a wide range of materials. For this project, I used a combination of the Cricut Fine Point Blade and the Cricut Knife Blade. The Cricut Fine Point Blade is for the card stock. The Cricut Knife Blade is for the thicker materials- the Kraft Board and the Corrugated Cardboard.
Open up Cricut Design Space. Click HERE to use the Leprechaun Hat File that I used. It is already sized to the perfect specifications for this project, but feel free to resize it for a smaller head band.
Send the design to the Cricut Maker machine. Be sure to change the material setting for each different element, as well as the blades.
- Hat buckle- card stock material setting; fine point blade only
- Four leaf clover- card stock material setting; fine point blade only
- Hat- corrugated cardboard material setting
- Hat base- Kraft board material setting
Cut each piece out with the Cricut Maker as directed within Cricut Design Space.
Fold the corrugated cardboard piece in a rectangular hat shape. Use the hot glue gun to secure the hat edges together. Glue the hat to the hat base.
Glue the four leaf clover to the top.
Thread the ribbon through the buckle piece. Secure it to the hat with hot glue.
Glue the assembled hat to the head band, slightly off center so that it will sit at an angle when worn.
Note: This hat is open at the top. If you prefer a closed hat, use the coordinating green card stock that comes in the pack with the corrugated card board to create a cover for the top. Hot glue it in place.
St. Patrick’s Day with Cricut is festive and easy! What do I like the most about my Cricut Maker? I like that I can customize any project within Cricut Design Space to make it my own. The file used for this St. Patrick’s Day Top Hat Headband was originally a treat container project! With a little bit of tweaking, the same design became a top hat headband. With Cricut Design Space and Cricut Access, there are unlimited crafting possibilities. The Cricut Maker takes crafting a step farther with the Adaptive Tool System, allowing a wider range of materials for cutting and crafting!
