Leprechaun Paper Plate Craft

Today we have been making these adorable leprechauns out of paper plates..

These look super cute hung up around the classroom and are definitely getting us into the spirit of celebrating St. Patrick's Day!

You will need;
  • Paper plate
  • Hat template
  • White card
  • Black marker
  • Green felt
  • Shamrock template
  • Black ribbon
  • Orange paint
  • Green paint
What you need to do;
  1. Paint the outside of the paper plate orange (turn it upside down so that you get all the grooves on the outside)
  2. Use the hat template to cut out the white card. Then paint this green. Leave to dry.
  3. Once dry, cut the black ribbon into a strip and stick it onto the hat. 
  4. Use the shamrock template to cut out the green felt, then stick this onto the black ribbon of the hat.
  5. Now, stick the hat onto the top of the paper plate.
  6. Use a black marker pen to draw eyes, nose and mouth on the leprechaun.
  7. Finished.
