Lovebug Creations Irish Kiss Top Hat by Christine Barker 2

Cead Mile Failte and Welcome to the Lovebug Creations First Ever Blog Hop! This weekend the Creative Team is celebrating March holidays, including St. Patty’s Day, Easter and even National Peanut Butter Day. With St. Patrick’s Day just around the corner, I decorated a little top hat that I had in my craft room. I’m imagining it on a cute wee leprechaun lassie jumping about looking for a pot of gold at the end of the rainbow.

First, I hot glued a black marabou feather mini boa trim around the brim. Next, I gathered some black mesh with a length of thread and glued that to a paper circle base. On top of that I hot glued several layers of vintage silk flowers together. The next step is to add some Lovebug Creations Rumple Ribbon from the “Pink Clouds” assortment. I finished it off with a vintage green rhinestone button that I found at an estate sale and used my glue gun to attach the whole embellishment to the feather trim.
