Create fantastic St. Patrick’s Day crafts with the DIY St. Patrick’s Day Puppet and the Pot of Gold projects with Jane Monzures!
Top o’ the mornin to ya lucky leprechauns! Everyone is Irish on St. Patrick’s Day! With these fun and easy crafts the whole family is sure to have a whale of a time! For the young lads and lassies, start with a Leprechaun paper bag puppet. What you’ll need is a paper bag, construction paper, glue, stickers, buttons, googly eyes, and anything you have that might at a little green to your project! Have all the kids create their own leprechaun and then have them put on a puppet show for the adults!
Your pot of gold at the end of the rainbow is not far away at all with these cute gift ideas…You can use them to give as gifts to co-workers, teachers and maybe even that special someone when they wake up on St. Paddy’s Day morning. All you need a small plastic or terra-cotta pot, black paint, glue, glitter, gold ribbon and a white marker.
First, paint the pot black.
Once the paint is dry glue on decorative ribbon or use glue and sprinkle it with glitter.
Once the glitter is dry you can write on the pot and don’t forget to put the “gold” inside. I like using gold wrapped candy or chocolate coin candy!
There you go, simple and easy St. Patrick’s Day crafts!
Finally, a special Irish Blessing for you… May your troubles be less and your blessings be more, and nothing but Craftiness come through your door.
Happy St Patrick’s Day!
