This Leprechaun Mason Jar craft is quick and easy to make, and would be perfect as a centerpiece for your St. Patrick's Day party!

Start by gathering your supplies and materials. For this project you will need: a mason jar with lid, green paint, black and gold cardstock, ribbon, hot glue gun, and a St. Patrick's Day sticker and flowers for filling, if desired.

Begin by pouring some green paint into a small mason jar. Place the lid on the jar and shake it until the entire inside of the jar is coated in paint.

Pour out and discard any excess paint.

Remove the lid and let the jar sit to dry overnight.

Then, cut a thin strip from the black glitter cardstock.

Use a hot glue gun to attach the black strip of cardstock to the bottom of the painted jar.

Cut out a small square from the gold glitter cardstock. Make it slightly wider than the black strip that you glued onto your jar, and cut a smaller square out of the middle of it.

Glue the gold glitter square shape onto the center of the black glitter strip on your jar.

Create a bow out of ribbon and glue to the top of your jar centered above the gold belt buckle.

Add a St. Patrick's Day sticker, if desired.

Fill your painted jar with St. Patrick’s Day flowers or other decorations and enjoy!
