Add a little luck of the Irish to your day with this cute leprechaun felt craft for kids!
There’s nothing my kids love more than a cute little leprechaun on St. Patrick’s Day! This little leprechaun is easy to make with kids and uses basic crafting supplies.
To make the leprechaun you will need:
Green and tan craft felt
Green and black craft foam
Green pipe cleaners/chenille stems
Orange craft pom poms
Glue gun (or tacky glue)
Begin by cutting a circle from the green craft felt and a slightly smaller oval from the tan craft felt. These pieces are for the leprechaun body and head.
From the green craft foam, cut a hat shape and a small strip of black craft foam for the band of the leprechaun’s hat. Glue all these pieces together. Glue the orange pom poms onto the face of your leprechaun, add the eyes and allow the glue to set completely. If you are using a hot glue gun it should set pretty quickly. The tacky glue may need to dry a bit before moving on.
Flip the leprechaun over, make arms and legs by twisting the pipe cleaners and glue them to the back. Use the glitter glue to make a little mouth and buttons.
If you have a magnet, glue this to the back and hang him up on the fridge! These would be adorable for a classroom project as well. Make up a stack of rainbow pancakes and serve with a leprechaun on the side!

That is so cute! I am going to have to make some of these with my youngest daughter and use them as magnets on our refrigerator. She loves doing all sorts of crafts.
Yes! They’d make the cutest magnets. 🙂
