Crochet a chain to desired length to attach leprechaun and shamrock. Attach the chain to the inside of the head before stuffing and sewing hat to head.

Finishing the Leprechaun
Stuff Hat lightly, sew to top of Head as shown in picture. With Black yarn, embroider eyes and mouth. Use acrylic yarn to attach and create the beard and hair for the leprechaun. I used Caron simply soft, latch-hooked it on and tied it in a knot. When finished I combed the yarn to create wavy beard and hair.
