Optional Hat:
I purchased a St Patty Glitter hat. You can purchase this hat from Michaels Arts and Crafts or Joanns Crafts. You can use the optional hat or crochet a green bow for the ear.

If you use the hat, apply a small amount of glue around rim (just on the part that will be on the head and will not show). Place hat on head and allow to dry. Make sure the glue is completely dried before you sew the ears. Once the hat is glued, attach the ears just below the hat.


If you use the bow, sew ears and attach bow to one ear.
