St. Patrick’s Day is tomorrow! (To be honest, for some reason I thought it was on the 21st!)
So this week I am bringing you 4 very fun & easy St. Patrick’s Day crafts, I know they are almost a bit too late – but they use very basic craft supplies & are a lot of fun.
We did these yesterday as just a bit of fun & to do a craft as LuLu loves craft time, they turned out so sweet I thought I would share them with you all.
Pot of gold under the rainbow.
We made this craft unique by changing the way we did the rainbow, I was missing a few paint colours for the rainbow, so I had a stack of paint cards in the craft box so I cut them up and we made our rainbow a collage. I think it turned out lovely.
You will need;
- A paper plate.
- A way to decorate the rainbow, paint, colour pencils, texta, crayons, coloured paper – the choice is yours.
- Cotton wool balls.
- Gold Glitter.
- Cut out one half of the plate, leave a “handle” up top. It should look like this.
- Paint the base of the paper plate “the pot” black.
- Decorate the rainbow how you wish.
- Attach cotton wool balls as little clouds/overflowing gold out of the pot.
- Add gold glitter. We added it over the cotton wool balls and painted some craft glue onto the top of the pot for the “over flowing gold” look.
- Admire your work.
- 3 small paper plates.
- A stapler (or a way to attach the plates together)
- Green paint (or green colour pencils, crayons or pens)
- 1 green pipe cleaner.
- Attach 3 small paper plates together.
Paint the plates green.
Attach pipe cleaner as stem.

- 1 large paper plate.
- A sheet of white paper or card.
- Orange paint (or crayons, pencils, textas)
- Green paint (or crayons, pencils, textas)

Paint your pieces. Hat band – black.

Paint the circle orange (like a beard & hair, you could also use cotton wool balls or another craft supply that you think looks like hair!)
Attach the hat to the beard & the hat band to the hat. I just glued them all together.
Draw on a little gold buckle with a gold pen or paint. I used gold puffy paint.
Say hello to your little leprechaun! Your child can even use this as a little mask, take a photo of their face through the cut out hole!
