Leprechaun Crafts Share the Luck of the Irish

Dress up your home, room or desk in time for St. Patrick's Day. With a few materials that you already have around the house, you can create a Leprechaun to help you celebrate this special day.

Lucky Leprechaun

Materials:

One toilet paper tube (or several if you want a few leprechauns)

Green construction paper

White construction paper

Black construction paper

Scissor

Crayons, markers, pencils

Glue, tape

Computer printer (optional)

Directions:

1. If desired, print out leprechaun template (below) and use it as the base for your leprechaun figure. Or draw individual parts of the leprechaun on the different colored construction paper (face, hat, shoes, hands, etc.).

2. Cover the toilet paper tube with a piece of green construction paper cut to size and adhere with tape or glue.

3. Assemble your leprechaun pieces and attach to the tube to create your leprechaun figure. Embellish with any other craft accessories you desire, such as wiggle eyes or a pom-pom nose.

4. Attach feet to the bottom and display. You may want to draw a rainbow and pot of gold alongside your lucky leprechaun.
