Paper Bag Leprechaun Craft
- Leprechaun Template
- Paper lunch bag
- Green acrylic paint
- Cardstock – orange, green, black
- Googly eyes, medium size
- Black marker
Begin by painting the paper bag green.
Lift under the flap of the bag and paint from there down. Let dry.
While the paint is drying, print the leprechaun pieces template. Trace the beard piece on orange cardstock and cut out. Trace the hat on green cardstock and cut out. You will also need to cut a strip for the hat from black cardstock.
Then glue the beard in place on the paper bag.
Glue the black strip across the green hat and glue in place at the top of the bag. The top of the beard piece should be positioned just under the hat.
Now glue on googly eyes.
And draw a simple mouth with the black marker.
Glue a large button to the hat.
And smaller buttons down the front of the leprechaun.
Such a fun St. Patrick’s Day craft!
Make a group of leprechauns and go on a hunt over the rainbow for a pot o’ gold!
