Clay Pot Leprechaun Hat Craft

Sharing is caring!

A fun and easy leprechaun craft for kids. Use a clay pot to create a leprechaun hat and decorate it with a paper shamrock.

The crafts we did last week last had all  something in common that reminded me of my childhood: a 4 leaf clover. I used to look for lucky clovers and jump for joy when I was able to find one. Now anything shamrock-inspired is associated with St Patrick’s Day. We didn’t celebrate this holiday when I was a kid in Romania, I knew nothing about leprechauns or pots of gold. But a field covered in clovers always made me happy.

This clay pot leprechaun hat was inspired by Life in Wonderland’s place card. It is a simple craft that can be used as a St Patrick’s Day decoration. We have ours by the fireplace.

Step 1: Paint your flower pot green. Wait for the paint to dry and apply another layer.

Step 2: Paint the flower pot rim black. One layer of paint is enough.

Step 3: Cut a belt buckle out of yellow foam and glue it on the black rim.

Step 4: Print out a shamrock on white cardstock, cut it out and glue it on the green part of the clay pot.
