A leprechaun is a mythical creature, some say. But today we make it a real critter by making our own little leprechaun craft!
These little fairies are very mischievous and tricky to catch. We would spend way to much time trying to catch a real one.
It would be long past St Patricks Day before we came across a real live leprechaun.
So here’s a way to make your own little easy toilet paper tube leprechaun craft!

Your Own Little Toilet Paper Roll Leprechaun
Bring the luck of the Irish to your crafting area, and make these Saint Patrick Day Kids Crafts! This time I will show you how to make a leprechaun out of toilet paper roll.
Unfortunately I do not have a craft template but I have step by step instructions with images to guide you.
Cut out strips of green and peach to cover your leprechaun.
First add the peach strip in the center for his face.
There will be a small green strip for his hat. And a larger strip for his body.
Cut out a circle from green construction paper, that is larger than the toilet paper roll.
Now, cut out the center of the circle (to the size of the roll)
This way you can slid the circle around the top green strip for the brim of his hat.
Of course you can always decorate his hat at the end. In this instance I add a buckle.
Cut another strip from green paper for our leprechaun’s arms.
Glue this on the reverse side only, leaving his arms spread out.
Cut out two peach colored hands.
Glue these to the ends of your arms.
Cut out a orange strip, about one inch wide. Of course you can make his beard as long and thick as you like!!
Measure where your face will be on your leprechaun. Make a beard shape at this point.
Add wave cuts along the bottom for his hair and beard.
Glue the beard in place.
Add your googly eyes.
Draw on a smile or maybe a frown depending on what mood you are in.
As well, add some buckles to his hat and body.
You can also add some other decor to your new little friend? How about a pot of gold or rainbow! After all this Irish friend knows all about these.
Maybe you love your new friend and want to make lots more of them? There are lots of ways you can make some more and make them different looking.
You can keep the body the same and add a rainbow colored hat, or maybe keep his hat green and draw a small rainbow with glitter pens. You can do this on his body too.
Maybe your leprechaun dyes his beard a different color, so you can opt for a black beard?!
How about glitter or sequins? My little girl has to put glitter on everything so I know she would love to smother the hat with green glitter and orange sequins.
