Let’s make it!

Firstly there are two ways to make this craft, if you have a white coloured yogurt pot then you’re good to go but if not (and let’s face it how often do you find a product not covered in writing) then you’ll need to either paint it white or use white coloured card or paper to wrap round it. Card or paper gives a more uniform colour to it and is quicker but arguably painting is more fun – go with what works for you. If your are covering your pot in card then cut wrap it round the pot first to get the correct shape and then cut the card out and selotape it around your pot.

Next up is your leprechaun’s hat. From green card cut out the hat shape and then cut out a black band and yellow buckle from card and stick these on, I’ve used a glue stick rather than PVA as it sticks so much quicker. Once your hat is made glue it onto your leprechauns head.

Next up is your leprechaun’s beard, cut this out of orange card making sure that it fits by holding it against your yogurt pot – you don’t want to make it so big that when it’s standing up the beard reaches his hat! Cut out some round circles for cheeks from pink card and glue these onto your yogurt pot along with your beard. Finally add some eyes and a mouth using your black pen.
