The pin I am featuring this week is: http://spoonful.com/crafts/catch-leprechaun
LEPRECHAUN HAT TRAPItems Needed:
Empty Oatmeal can
Shamrock Foam Stickers
Cover your oatmeal can with the green felt, and add the black and yellow felt as shown to make the buckle for the hat.
Cut a circle of felt for the bottom of the hat and a circle of felt to place on the top of the hat. (Note: You will just set this felt on top so the leprechaun will fall into the trap when he goes to get the gold)
Make your ladder with the sticks (I just glued them with a glue gun) and put some sort of pot of gold or gold coins on top to entice your leprechaun.
RAINBOW CAGE DROPItems Needed:
White Cardstock or Poster Board
Strawberry basket or I just used a chinese take out box
Pot of Gold Decoy
Bend your wire hanger as shown.
Make your trap by either covering a berry basket with cotton balls, or if you can’t find that… I just cut some slits in a take out box (so the leprechaun can breathe) and then attached cotton balls to it!
TRICKY TRAP DOOR!Items Needed:
Tall box (I used a smaller cereal box)
Green Tissue Paper
Gold coins or Gold Pot Decoy
Cut the top of your cereal box so you just have the two flaps on the top.
Good luck catching these little buggers, if you get one and he tells you where all the gold is, please share the info with me!
