To do the project, here is what I did.
I took a small terracotta pot (I chose it because of the wide brim that looks a bit like that of a hat), spray painted it with Rust-Oleum Gloss Protective Enamel in Gloss Rich Jade, and let the paint dry.
To imitate the sash on a Leprechaun's hat I cut a piece of gold colored cardstock to size, made some slits and slid a piece of black ribbon through the "buckle." I used a dab of hot glue to secure the black trim to the "Hat."
I cut a piece of floral foam to insert into the pot and used some hot glue with my Ad Tech Glue Gun to secure the block.
With some more glue, I covered the foam and filled the gaps with the shredded paper (or Easter Grass).
I chose some foam clovers, adhered them to each pencil with some more hot glue, and poked the pencils into the floral foam.
I added a bit more glue and "Grass" to cover the holes.
To finish off the Lucky Hat, I glued a few gold foil wrapped chocolates in the "Grass."
