Figure A


1. Cut out four or five double-thick green felt grapevine leaves and a green felt circle about six inches in diameter. Top-stitch two leaves together with brown thread and sew some veining if desired. Repeat for the remaining leaves.

Figure B

2. Make the stem by covering the tissue paper roll with brown felt and hot-glue it to the green felt circle.

Figure C

3. Glue the leaves to the felt circle as desired and add some curly brown pipe cleaners as the final touch (wrap them around a pencil to curl them). Hand-sew the elastic or ribbons to the bottom to keep the hat on.

4. Blow up the balloons and carefully pin them to the front and back of the sweatshirt.
