How to make a mix and match paper Leprechaun Craft 



STEP 1: Prepare printable leprechaun template 


First print the leprechaun template that can be found at the bottom of the page and choose the pieces you’d like to use. Cut them out.

You can either trace the pieces on the coordinating coloured paper or you can simply colour the pieces using markers, crayons or paint.

If you are tracing the pieces onto coloured paper and you would like to make a leprechaun like the ones in our images you will need to trace and cut the arms and legs from green paper, the hands from the skin coloured paper and the shoes from brown paper.

Trace and cut the face from skin coloured paper and the beard from orange paper.

Trace and cut the large circle and the hat parts from green paper.

The long rectangle, big square and small square make the belt. Trace and cut the long rectangle and small square from brown paper and the big square from yellow paper. There are two belt options, one larger one for the body and one smaller one for the hat.

If you are making a leprechaun photo craft you will need to cut out a photograph of your child's face.

STEP 2: Assemble leprechaun craft


Use craft glue to assemble your mix and match leprechaun craft.

Assemble the belts by gluing the yellow square onto the brown belt, then glue the small brown square on top of the yellow square.  Then glue the smaller belt to the hat and attach the hat to the head.
