Easy Leprechaun Hat Party Centerpiece

leprechaun hat centerpiece - st. patrick's day

Another quick & easy St. Patrick’s Day centerpiece idea and this one literally takes about 5 minutes to put together once you have the elements!

1. Pillar candle holders in 2 different heights
2. Sparkly leprechaun hats – around $2.50 at most party supply stores
3. Bright yellow ribbon – 1.5″ wide
4. Something to use as a “buckle” – You can either make your own using cardstock, or use sparkly gold chipboard pieces like the ones I used here – which are part of K&Company’s Twinkle Type Letters and were purchased at Michaels.

Simply wrap & fasten ribbon around the hats to form the bands, glue on the “buckles”, and hang the hats on the candle holders. Tilt the hats slightly in different directions. DONE!

As an option, you can also add a themed sticker like a shamrock or “L” for Lucky/Leprechaun inside the buckle… and the rest of the Twinkle Type Letters are also great for spelling out festive words in front of the centerpiece or elsewhere in the party!
