Cute Cone Leprechauns

Transform colored construction paper into a cute St. Patrick's Day Leprechaun!

Craft Project Directions:
To make this cute cone leprechaun you will need green, black, white, and yellow construction paper, a green pipe cleaner, markers or crayons, scissors, and some glue.

To begin take a piece of green construction and cut it in half, then roll it into a small tube- this tube will become your leprechaun's legs. If you want a small leprechaun make this tube small, or if you want a large leprechaun make this tube large.

Cut a v into the tube at the bottom in the front and back to make the tube look like legs.

Next take your green construction paper and create a medium size cone for your leprechaun's body and set it on top of the tube.

Take your white paper next and create small white cone for your leprechaun's face.

Snip the top off the cone which is the leprechaun's body, flip over the white cone and insert into the top of the green cone to make the leprechaun's head.

Now take your green pipe cleaner and insert it through the green body cone below the head and pull it half way through to create leprechaun arms and hands.

 Next make another small green cone to rest on top of the leprechaun's head as a hat. Now you are ready to decorate your lucky leprechaun!

Cut out some green shamrocks, a black paper belts, gold buttons and gold pieces, and give your cute cone leprechaun an impish face.

Happy St. Patrick's Day!
