Supplies Needed to Make a Popsicle Stick Leprechaun

What kind of glue should I use? 

Hot glue will always work best for googly eyes and pom poms (adult assistance needed). If you prefer to use a regular white glue, we like to use an extra-strong glue, like this one. Just make sure to allow it to have plenty of time to dry.

5. Add pink cheeks.

Dip the back of a pencil or paintbrush into pink paint and dab on the side of the leprechaun face.

6. Make the hat.

Add a strip of black paper or cardstock just above the small popsicle stick. Then add a square piece of gold glitter paper in the middle.

7. Add a small orange pom pom for the nose and draw on a smile with a black marker.

8. Add orange pom poms for the beard.

Alternate the size slightly if desired or you can use all of the same size. We used a size slightly larger than the nose (8mm for the nose and 15 mm for the beard).

9. Glue on 2 black buttons.

You could also use black pom poms.
