I Captured The King Of The Leprechauns!!

Being from Ireland I just couldn’t resist sharing a little bit of St Patrick’s Day crafting mischief with you, made with a humble toilet paper tube and scraps of paper! Your kids will love making this toilet roll leprechaun king and a group of his leprechaun friends for some Paddy’s Day shenanigans around the house xx

Caution!… have your kids keep their eyes peeled on this wee fella – Leprechauns are smart,  mischievous little  Faeries who ™ll do anything to escape capture, even if it means turning them into a frog!

Preparing the materials:

toilet roll leprechaun
– a rectangle of green paper for the King’s suit (craft paper, crepe paper, wrapping paper or scrapbooking paper – whatever you have)
– a rectangle of orange paper for the beard with slits cut all along one side
– two longer strips of orange paper for the hair at either side of the beard
– a strip of gold paper cut into a crown shape

Curl the orange beard and hair strips around a pencil or pen to give it a lovely ‘bounce’

Glue the green paper suit, beard and hair into position on the toilet paper tube.

Glue on the crown
Draw little dots for the eyes, nose and mouth – I used a mini brown pom pom for the nose for added cuteness!!
