How to Make A Paper Plate Leprechaun Craft

  1. Grab your supplies.
  2. Out of the green construction paper, cut out a leprechaun hat. Cut out a black band and gold buckle from the black construction paper and gold foam sheet. Glue it to the top of the paper plate.
  3. Glue on googley eyes and draw a face.
  4. Take your cardboard tube and make about five cuts along one end. Round the edges of the resulting flaps.
  5. Pour some orange paint on to a paper plate and dip your cardboard tube into the paint.
  6. Use it to make prints all along the bottom of your leprechaun’s face to create his beard. Don’t forget to give him hair around his face as well!
