Toilet Paper Roll Leprechauns


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"!
