With St. Patrick’s Day in sight, we have the cutest little leprechaun craft to share! With little more than craft sticks and paint, this Craft Stick Leprechaun Craft is the perfect way to celebrate the luck of the Irish!
I can’t help it, I love everything about this craft. It makes me smile every time I look at the finished product. From the giddy little legs of our Craft Stick Leprechaun Craft to the tip of his green hat. Speaking of hats, you should check out our Yarn Wrapped Leprechaun Hats Craft, too!
For our Craft Stick Leprechaun Craft you will need a total of 10 craft sticks. Also needed is acrylic paint in green, black, orange, and a cream. Aside from that, the remainder of the supplies include green cardstock, scraps of yellow and white paper, medium googly eyes, a black pen, an orange pen, scissors, and glue.

Begin by painting the craft sticks.
Paint the following; 4 green, 2 black, 2 orange, and 2 cream. Let dry completely.

Cut a rectangle from the green cardstock for the leprechaun’s hat. Glue on back.
Adhere googly eyes on the cream craft sticks. Use the black pen to draw a small nose on the cream craft sticks, as well. Also, use the black pen to separate the legs on the bottom green craft stick. Draw a mouth on the bottom orange craft. Use the orange pen to make a few dots for freckles.
Cut two small yellow rectangles for buckles. Glue in place on the black craft sticks. Cut hand shapes from the white paper. Glue on the side of the 2 green craft sticks. Use the black pen, again, to color in the center of the buckle.
These giddy little leprechauns have lots of green, lots of charm, and are lots of fun! Be sure to check out all of our St. Patrick’s Day crafts at Our Kid Things!
