4 fun & easy St. Patrick's Day Crafts.

May your troubles be less and blessings be more and nothing but happiness come through your door. - Irish Blessing.
Hello friends!
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.
  • Scissors.
  • Paint.
  • Glue
  • A way to decorate the rainbow, paint, colour pencils, texta, crayons, coloured paper - the choice is yours.
  • Cotton wool balls.
  • Gold Glitter.
How to;
  1. Cut out one half of the plate, leave a "handle" up top. It should look like this. 
  2. Paint the base of the paper plate "the pot" black. 
  3. Decorate the rainbow how you wish. 
  4. Attach cotton wool balls as little clouds/overflowing gold out of the pot. 
  5. 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. 
  6. Admire your work. 
3 Leaf Clover.
We made this a 3 leaf clover, I did try a lucky 4 leaf clover - but it looked a bit awkward. The 3 leaves, look much better. This craft is so easy!
You will need;
  • 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. 
How to;
  1. Attach 3 small paper plates together. 
  2. Paint the plates green. 
  3. Attach pipe cleaner as stem.
  4. Admire your 3 leaf clover!
      
Leprechaun. 
You will need;
  • 1 large paper plate.
  • A sheet of white paper or card.
  • Scissors.
  • Glue
  • Orange paint (or crayons, pencils, textas)
  • Green paint (or crayons, pencils, textas)
  • Black paint. 
  • Gold pen or paint.
How to;
  1. Cut out the centre of the paper plate. 
  2. Cut out the shape of a hat & also one strip of paper to be the hat band. 
  3. Paint your pieces. Hat band - black.

  4. Hat green. 
      
     
    Trent helping LuLu before he left for work.
  5. 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!) 
  6. Attach the hat to the beard & the hat band to the hat. I just glued them all together.
  7. Draw on a little gold buckle with a gold pen or paint. I used gold puffy paint.
  8. 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! 
Handprint 4 leaf clover.
This is so simple and only takes minutes to do and makes for a very sweet keepsake.
You will need;
  • 1 sheet of paper or cardboard.
  • Green paint.
  • A small set of hands. 
How to;
  1.  Paint your little ones hand. 
  2. Press hands onto paper. 
  3. Repeat 4 times, to make 4 leaves. 
  4. Draw/paint on a stem.
  5. Admire your sweet little lucky 4 leaf clover! 
I hope you enjoyed these very simple but very sweet crafts.
