- Toilet paper tube
- Green craft foam
- Acrylic paints: green, skin-tone, pink, and brown
- Black permanent marker
- Tacky glue
- 4 brown pipe cleaners
- Decorative button
- Draw a 2 1/2-inch circle around the first circle, then cut them both out to create a hat top and brim and set them aside.
- Next, using acrylic paints, paint the paper tube green. Add a skin-tone face and hands, plus rosy cheeks, as well as a band of brown paint around the back for hair.
- Once the paint has dried, use a permanent marker to draw on facial and clothing details, then use tacky glue to stick on 3 coiled brown pipe cleaners: 2 in the back for hair and 1 around the face for a beard. For feet, fold another pipe cleaner in half, then tightly coil and pinch the ends, as shown.
- Place the folded pipe cleaner inside the tube and glue the feet to the edge. Glue on the hat top and brim and a 5 1/2- by 1/2-inch strip of craft foam for arms.
- Finally, glue a decorative button to the hat brim.http://familyfun.go.com/st-patricks-day/st-patricks-day-crafts/wee-leprechaun-667671/
