We are finally starting to work on some St. Patrick's Day decorations for around the house. My favorite color is green, so these projects are perfect;0) Today we made Leprechauns out of toilet paper tubes.

1. Paint a toilet paper tube green.

2. When it dries, trace the end of it onto green paper.

3. Make a bigger circle around the area you traced and then cut it out to form a doughnut shape.

4. Slide the circle over the top of the toilet paper tube to create a hat.

5. Paint an oval for the face, just below the hat.

6. Glue on some pieces of yarn to form a beard.

7. Add some arms cut from construction paper.

8. Draw a face on and you have yourself a "wee little Leprechaun"!

I posted the pictures of mine because the girls used so much green paint that they will probably take a day to dry so they can finish them.


  1. That is darling! Another idea to add to my list. Thank you!

  2. That is SOOO cute! The beard is just too much, I love it! I'll be linking.

  3. I love toilet paper roll crafts. That is too cute.

  4. Found you here too :) your kiddos are so adorable :) love the site and all the cool ideas, follow you here too!

  5. This is the cutest and I love how it uses a toilet paper roll!

    Have I asked you yet if you'd be willing to let us feature you on ABC and 123? You've probably seen the button on my blog Katie's Nesting Spot, I know you've been over:)

    We'd use a picture - without your kiddo's face in it, short description, and direct link back with your name and blog included. Cause there is a whole laundry list of posts I want to include!

    I wish my kid could've had you for a preschool teacher. We doing the rounds and even thought I taught K I am still so confused!

  6. Love it!

    Am going to feature it on our site


Thanks for visiting! Come back again!
