Whether you have strong ties with the Irish community or just feel like giving your neighbor a little surprise, this super easy DIY St. Patrick’s Day gift would be welcomed and enjoyed by anyone! I placed a plant inside of the hat to create a cute centerpiece but you could fill it with candy or even small toys. Hope you enjoy!
- Green Top Hat (Or make your own with a Paper Mache Hat and Buckle!).
- Darice Dowel Rods (2).
- Darice Shamrock Foamie Stickers.
- Darice Green & White Baker’s Twine.
- David Tutera Chalkboard Stakes.
- Plant, Candy, or Small Toys (To fill hat with).
Step 1. Gather the supplies for your DIY St. Patrick’s Day gift. You can either follow this tutorial exactly or pick a few different materials and add your own spice! Darice has tons of great St. Patrick’s Day craft options to gather inspiration and choose from. How much fun would it be to sprinkle some of the gold coins around the base of the hat if you’re planning on using this as a centerpiece?!
Step 2. Making the Shamrock pennant flag couldn’t be easier. Just tie a bit of baker’s twine around the top of two dowel rods and sandwich it in between two shamrock stickers. Crazy easy, right? Just gently push the ends into the plant soil to position in hat. You could even use this idea for a super cute DIY St. Patrick’s Day cake topper! (Minus the plant soil, of course.)
Step 3. Write a saying on the blank chalkboard with either a white paint pen or chalk marker. I went with “Lucky To Know You” so that I could gift my plant centerpiece to a neighbor but you can use any appropriate sentiment. “Happy St. Patrick’s Day” or “Erin Go Bragh” would also work!
Hope you enjoyed this idea for a super easy DIY St. Patrick’s Day centerpiece gift. Whether you’re Irish or not, St. Patrick’s Day is a great excuse for giving fun gifts to friends and neighbors! How fun would it be to fill your hat gift with these rainbow candy St. Patrick’s Day treats?!
