DIY St. Patty’s Day Hat Hair Pin!

Ok. This is probably one of the best little projects I’ve come across. A friend of mine shared a YouTube video tutorial where this guy makes tiny hat hair pins. The ones he made were ADORABLE but I thought I would change the color scheme to make the hat something everyone would want to wear for St. Patty’s day! I mean, common, when else is it appropriate for anyone over the age of 5 to wear a tiny hat? 😉

Here’s what you need:

  • Bottle cap
  • Round template (anything bigger than your cap)
  • Cardboard
  • Green acrylic paint
  • Green glitter
  • Gold ribbon (thinner the better)
  • Industrial glue (E-600 is the best)
  • Black tulle
  • Long Bobby Pins
  • Scissors
  • Paint brush (foam ones work perfectly)

The first step is to take your round template and place it on your cardboard. Make sure your circle is just a bit larger than your bottle cap.

Next, glue your bottle cap to your cardboard circle.

While it’s drying, take a SMALL piece of your black tulle and bunch it together. Then, glue the gathering point together.

Now that your cap is glued and dried to the cardboard, dip your sponge into your green paint, and completely coat your “hat”.

Before it dries, sprinkle your hat generously in green glitter.

Next, cut a strip of your gold ribbon long enough to wrap around the base of your bottle cap. Then, add glue to the underside of your ribbon.

Once your ribbon is glued, place it around the base of your bottle cap.

Next, take your bunched tulle and add a dab of glue to the base. Then, glue it to the side of your hat.

While your glue is drying, grab a large bobby pin and add a drop of glue to the top.
