Rainbow Hats

Who doesn’t love St. Patrick’s Day?  The green, the rainbows… the GOLD.  🙂  This year in conjunction with our Noah and the Ark unit we are learning about rainbows and tying in St. Patrick’s Day.Rainbow hat cover

First begin by cutting colored construction paper into rainbow colored strips.  The longer the strips the higher the hat will be, so this is just an example of size:rainbow hat 2

red – 12 inches,  orange -11.5 inches,  yellow- 11 inches,  green- 10.5 inches,  blue- 10 inches and purple 9.5 inches.  (I actually did a little bit smaller than this for mine, but use any length in increments of a half an inch.

Have the students put them in rainbow order.rainbow hat 1

Staple each side together to get a rainbow.

Attach the rainbow to a paper hat, then glue on “clouds” aka cotton balls.  Super cute!

Before you read any further… check out my wreath giveaway!  Who doesn’t like free stuff?  Now on to St. Patty’s Day business.

I had a TON of fun making this little project.  So bright and cheery! I used this Pinterest Pin as my inspiration.  I covered an 8×10 piece of cardboard with a great green fabric, then I made 5 of the cute felt shamrocks.  I promise you felt is easiest…  I made them with paper, with fabric and then with felt as shown on the pin.  Neither the paper nor the fabric worked well.  I then hot glued the shamrocks down, removed the glass from a picture frame and popped it in.  I love the way it’s 3-D and adds great color to my St. Patrick’s Day mantel!

St Patty’s Day Inspired Wreath

Oh my GOSH, do I love this wreath?!?!?  Yup, I most certainly do!

I took my Valentine’s wreath and turned it into this.  Although it’s not overtly St Patrick’s Day colors, it was inspired by the holiday.  I have a feeling it will make it’s way back to my front door in May/June after my Spring one comes down.  I really does look “every day”.  Continue reading

St Patty’s Day Mantel

Ohhh… the next holiday is coming and I get to take down V-day and move on to the next fun I found!  St Patrick’s Day…  although my maiden name IS Reilly, I’m not much into beer and don’t actually believe in luck or leprechauns, but I can still enjoy the holiday with my family.  Here is a peek at my St. Patty’s Day mantel.  I’ll be posting pics and tutorials over the next 2ish {don’t think that’s a word, oh well} weeks on how I made each thing!  So excited to share with you.  I hope you think it’s as adorable as I do!  If you want to know why I’m not lucky check back.  I’ll explain it, or better yet, follow along via Facebook or e-mail.  🙂  Now to keep my plants alive for an entire month!
