Leprechaun Craft #1
Leprechaun Face Mobile
This leprechaun craft is just too cute. Your leprechaun face can be however you want to make him. Give a red beard or a pink nose. You can give him wide eyes or squinty eyes. Use your imagination to make your leprechaun face.
- Colored Sheets of Craft Foam
- Hot Glue
- Paper Plate
- Google Eyes (optional)
How to Make a Leprechaun Face Mobile
Step 1: Print out this leprechaun face template.
Tip: You can make your own face or find your own picture as well.
Step 2: Cut out the different parts of the template. Trace these shapes onto the different colored craft foam and cut them out.
Tip: Make the hat green for St. Patrick’s Day. All other color choices are up to you.
Step 3: Cut a paper plate in half and then cut out the center (leaving just the outer rim). Color this with markers to make a rainbow.
Step 4: Place your paper plate on the table and arrange the leprechaun pieces below the rainbow.
Step 5: Hot glue the string to each of the pieces. You will need several pieces of string to hold together all the parts of the face.
Tip: It’s easiest to start in the middle and work your way to each end of the face
Step 6: Now glue a piece of string (looped) at the top of the plate for hanging.
Because some of the craft foam pieces are small you may need help to cut these out. Also, it’s easier if you hot glue some of the pieces together (like the ears to the beard) before you glue to the string.

How to Make a Leprechaun Hat Placeholder
