St Patrick's Day Leprechaun Pom Pom Yarn Wreath with Handmade Felt Hat

St Patrick's Day Leprechaun Pom Pom 
Yarn Wreath

My latest handmade yarn wreath to celebrate St Patrick's Day.

When I started out I wasn't sure how this would turn out but I am quite pleased with the overall look of this wreath.

I started with a 14" styrofoam wreath form that I wrapped with orange and green yarn. I made 10 large orange pom poms that I attached to the wreath to give the affect of a beard. I also added a little yarn to the top to give the illusion of hair.

The hat is made with green felt that I attached to a stiffer white felt for stability. I also added a black felt strip and gold glitter buckle for more dimension to the hat. At the last minute I decided to add the felt shamrock to the hat just for a break in color.
