Mini Shamrock Hat Basket - tiny green Irish hat filled with mini shamrocksLet's play a game. It is believed that when you find a four leaf clover you'll find luck. So, I just thought of making a shamrock hat - a fancy green hat filled with these teeny weeny clover leaves. For a St. Patrick's day celebration find your lucky clover in it.



  • art paper colored green, yellow and black
  • 2 shades of green art paper cut into 1x1 inch squares
  • glue
  • bottle cap
  • marker/pen/pencil
  • scissors

  13. Cut thin strips out of some of the 1x1 green paper.
