How to Make a Paper Roll Leprechaun Craft

1. Add green to the bottom of the paper roll.

First cut a strip of green glitter paper to wrap around the bottom of your paper roll.

Tip: Foam glitter paper works better than cardstock since it will bend easier.

2. Make the leprechaun’s hat.

Make the hat by wrapping green glitter paper around to form a roll. Glue a strip of black on top and then glue a gold glitter paper buckle on top of this.

To make the buckle: cut out a square and then fold over so you can make a slit mark with scissors in the center. Then you can cut a smaller square in the center of the gold square.

3. Make the bottom of the hat.

To make the bottom of the hat: cut out a circle from your green glitter paper. You can trace around something that is circle to get the shape or use a circle puncher. Glue the top of the hat to the green glitter paper circle.

4. Paint the top of the paper roll for the leprechaun’s face.

You can find a selection of paint colors here.

Now start adding your large orange pom poms to make the beard. You can start with one in the middle and then glue more all the way up the side of the paper roll.
