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.
