Leprechaun paper plate faces
What you'll need:
white paper plate
green, yellow and black construction paper
orange craft poms
What you'll do:
Cut a piece of green construction paper in half crosswise. Cut a second piece of green construction paper that is 1 inch tall and 2 inches wider than the larger piece of construction paper.
Glue the long thin piece of construction paper to the bottom of the larger piece to form the leprechaun's hat.
Cut a long strip from the black construction paper and glue it just above the brim of the hat, trimming the length if needed.
Cut a 2-inch square from the yellow construction paper. Fold the square in half and cut out a rectangle from the center. Glue the square at the center of the hat over the top of the black band.
Glue the hat to the top of the paper plate.
Cut out two ovals from the black construction paper, and glue them to the plate to form the leprechaun's eyes.
Draw a nose and mouth on the plate.
Apply craft glue around the bottom edge of the paper plate.
Place multiple orange craft poms on the glue to create the leprechaun's beard.
