Step 1: Download and Print the Free Easy Leprechaun Craft Template
Download the Free Easy Leprechaun Printable. In the next step, learn how to quickly cut out as many shapes as you need.
Step 2: Staple and Cut Out the St. Patrick’s Day Craft Shapes
Once you have the easy leprechaun template printed out, staple it to construction paper and cut out multiple shapes at a time.
Note: If you want to make this craft with a group of kids, you can staple the template to up to 10 sheets of copy paper, 5 sheets of cardstock or 6-10 sheets of construction paper.
So, did you know, you can staple together 10 pieces of copy paper and cut out 10 shapes at a time?! That’s my SECRET to fast & easy crafting.
Stapling the paper is very important because it makes sure it doesn’t move as you cut. The more staples the better. Cardstock is the thickest so you may only be able to cut 5 sheets at a time.
Step 3: How to Assemble
The kids will have so much fun making this easy St. Patrick’s Day craft!
