Leprechaun Hat Craft for Kids – #FridayFrivolity

St. Patrick’s Day is around the corner and here at Friday Frivolity we’re here to celebrate. Today I’m bringing you a simple craft idea for kids, painted leprechaun hats.

I got almost all the supplies I used from Dollar Tree. The paints and brushes I already had laying around from prior crafts.


What you’ll need

Plastic cups

I found a set of 12 at Dollar Tree that had a lip to it like the brim of a hat.

Paint and brushes

Green is a must but you can do the accents any color you want.


I found fun St. Paddy’s themed stickers at Dollar Tree. This is optional of course but my daughter loves stickers and had fun decorating her hat with them.


You can fill your hat with anything you want. Gold foil chocolate coins would work great here but my little doesn’t really eat chocolate so we put books and stuffed animals in hers.

What to do

Paint your hats green and let them dry thoroughly. I let mine sit overnight before adding the accents. Go around the rim with a different color to give it the look of a fedora.
Once it’s dry, decorate the hat with stickers or markers.
If you want to use a sealer on it you could do that after the decorating step.
Fill your leprechaun hats with goodies and enjoy!

What are your favorite crafts for St. Patrick’s day?
