Quick & Easy St. Patrick’s Day Leprechaun Craft

All opinions expressed herein are my own!

For St. Patrick’s Day we’re making these adorable Leprechaun’s using toilet paper rolls! Do you keep toilet paper and paper towel rolls for your kids?  My crew fights over these things because they KNOW that they are the basis for the best crafts! If I have any group craft activities in mind I have to horde these things like they were my favorite brand of cookies!

Leprechaun Toilet Paper Craft Supplies

Start this project by hording your toilet paper rolls for a week! (teasing)

Gather your favorite craft supplies, scissors, glue, and colorful craft paper.  For this project we are using tan/peach, green, and orange, black, and yellow.

Note: Don’t let the photos fool you! You will not need a shamrock craft punch for this project.  They are in the photo to look cute.  Sorry for the confusion.

Leprechaun Toilet Paper Craft Step 1

The first thing you will want to do is cover one half of your tube with peach/tan paper and the bottom half in green.

Next, cut three strips of orange paper (about 1 inch wide). Cut slits to create the hair and beard, be careful not to cut completely through each page. Starting from the top of your green “body” on the tube, carefully glue on your beard using 2 of your orange fringe paper.  Use the remaining orange fringe to create hair (don’t glue around the complete tube as you did for the beard – see photo).

Once your beard and hair are glued into place, use a pencil or to roll out the hair away from the body.

Leprechaun Toilet Paper Craft Step 2

Cut a 1/3 inch wide strip of green paper. Glue onto the top of your tube to begin creating the Leprechaun hat.

Cut a small rounded square from your green paper. Glue onto the front of your hat band.

No Leprechaun hat is complete without a great buckle!  Use your black and yellow paper to create the black hat trim and yellow buckle (as shown in the photos below).

Leprechaun Toilet Paper Craft Step 3

Finally, it’s time to put some life in this little guy!  Draw on your eyes or glue on googly eyes. Use two small rectangle strips of orange paper to create eyebrows.  An orange pom pom makes a perfect nose!

If you have a red Sharpie, use it to draw on your smile.  Red scrap paper works great if you can’t find your marker!
