3 sheets card stock- green
1 sheet card stock- gold- for buckle or real buckle
1– 3” x 6″ round glass vase (inner vase or use a quart mason jar)
1–5” x 8″ round glass vase- outer vase
scissors, glue, tape
1 yard- 1/2″ wide black satin ribbon for band
Fresh flowers- used 5 white tulips and 7 stems of baby’s breath
Cut green card stock to fit inside outer 4″ vase, tape to seal edge.
Place inner glass vase or mason jar inside outer larger vase. Fill inner vase with water when ready to arrange.
Make the hat brim by cutting a large 8″ circle from green card stock. Cut out with scissors.
Make card stock buckle and shamrock. For the shamrock, make it three dimensional by making three small heart shapes. Fold each heart in half vertically and glue to flat shamrock petal sections. This will make your shamrock look fuller.
Arrange white tulips in inner water filled jar, fill in with baby’s breath, cutting stems to fit the vase.
Change water every day for lasting blooms.
To present as a table centerpiece- place on a cake stand for elevation if desired.

Three Easy Steps to Make Hat Centerpiece
Cut card stock green hat brim- 2″ larger than large vase base. Line outer vase with green card stock, taping to secure inside the vase. The smaller inner vase or quart jar will fit inside this larger vase. Water will not be touching the inside of the outer vase.
Wrap black ribbon around the base of the outer vase to form a band around the brim. I used 1/2″ wide satin ribbon and did three layers, used double face tape to secure ends.
Add gold paper buckle and shamrock to one side of the buckle. If you have a real buckle use that, just secure to ribbon. Now you are ready to add the inner vase and make arrangement.
Place inner vase inside outer vase, fill inner with water. Fill the vase with 7 stems of baby’s breath or more if your vase is larger. Baby’s breath will act as the filler so stuff the vase full, next add white tulip stems. Be sure to cut the stems at a 45 degree angle before inserting in water.
No need to add flower feed to your arrangement, if you keep the water fresh each day your flowers will be just fine.
Its Pretty Easy to Make! Your family will love this.
