Dollar Tree Coffee Filter Leprechauns

14 Materials
30 Minutes

I love crafting with my nieces and nephews, so much so that I am starting a new series called Crafting with the Kiddos! Our first project is Dollar Tree Coffee Filter Leprechauns a quick and easy craft just in time for St. Patrick’s Day.

Flatten round coffee filters, and color completely with an orange washable marker. Add in some yellow and red. Place on a gallon size zipper bag or metal baking sheet pan and then mist with a water spray bottle. Set aside to dry.

Once dry, fold the orange coffee filter in half. Apply gold glitter glue in a swirl pattern over the entire folded coffee filter. Set aside to dry.

Paint the bottom one-third of the clothespin with flesh-toned craft paint of your choice. Paint the top two-thirds of the clothespin with green craft paint.

Draw and then cut a mustache shape from orange craft paper with scissors. Attach mustache to bottom of clothespin and wiggle eyes just above using glue gun and glue sticks. Using the end of a paintbrush add a dot of peach craft paint for the Leprechaun’s nose.

Cut a rectangular hat brim from green paper and glue to clothespin where the green and flesh tone paint meet. Draw a square of gold glitter glue above hat brim as a buckle.

Once glitter glue is dry clip the clothespin Leprechaun head onto the coffee filter beard.

Create this Dollar Store Coffee Filter Leprechaun Craft in just about 30 minutes with help from the kiddos! Super cute to clip onto a banner or top a gift bag filled with a special St. Paddy’s Day treat!
