Gather together a pack of felt, some craft sticks, along with a bit of green paint and you have the makings for the cutest Craft Stick Felt Leprechauns Craft just ready for St. Patrick’s Day!
I have to say, the more we play with these Craft Stick Felt Leprechauns Craft, the more I absolutely love them. They are just the cutest, greenest, orange beardy-est little guys that you could have to watch over a pot of gold. Or whatever you might have a leprechaun do.
Our Craft Stick Felt Leprechauns Craft are really easy to make, too. The list of supplies include felt in green, black, orange, and yellow. Along with the felt, you’ll also need green acrylic paint, a fine-tip black marker, craft sticks, glue, scissors, and googly eyes. We found that medium eyes, though they don’t fit so well on the craft stick, actually look the best.
Craft Stick Felt Leprechauns Craft
- Felt – green, black, orange, yellow
- Green acrylic paint
- Medium googly eyes
- Craft sticks
- Black marker
Gather the colors of felt.
Cut about a 1 ½” circle from the orange felt for the leprechauns altogether hair and beard. A thin rectangle and larger rectangle from the green felt for the hat. An even thinner rectangle from the black felt for the hat trim. And just a small square of yellow for the hat accent.
Make two snips in the center of the orange felt circle, about a fingertip width apart. Slide a craft stick through the back of the bottom slip, over the front, and back through the top slit so there’s a section of craft stick showing in the center. Slide the orange felt towards the top.
Form slight snips around the orange circle for movement, like hair.
Adhere googly eyes to the craft stick. With the black marker, draw just a bit of a mouth beneath the eyes on the orange felt.
Now, glue the hat pieces in place. Large rectangle as the base, longer green rectangle on bottom, black rectangle just above that, and finished with the square of yellow.
Glue the hat to the top of the orange circle and craft stick.
Lift up the orange felt and paint the rest of the craft stick green. When the paint is dry, color in a black belt with the black marker.
