Leprechaun Craft – Make A Beard

beard craft

When I was brainstorming St. Patrick’s Day ideas I thought why not make a leprechaun beard! You can find hats for nothing at big box stores but no where had any beards. Here is an easy tutorial for your older leprechaun in training. My son was sleeping when I made this but has played with it numerous times since it’s creation, though it’s more of a monster mask on him!

  1. Gather your materials. You will need 3 pieces of construction paper, one for the base and 2 bright orange for the hair. Some yarn, scissors, a pencil, glue and a hole punch.
  2. Start by drawing a beard on the paper, I put it up to my face and measured from ear to ear.
  3. Cut out .
  4. For the hair you want to cut the orange construction paper into strips
  5. Roll them tightly around the pencil to make a curl.
  6. Glue them to the beard, starting at the bottom
  7. Keep going
  8. Let dry
  9. Punch holes for the yarn
  10. Add the yarn for the ties
  11. put it on !
