Crafting with the Kiddos: Dollar Tree Coffee Filter Leprechauns

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.

 

Coffee filters, wooden clothespins, washable markers, glitter glue, and a few more supplies from the Dollar Tree transform into a mischievous Leprechaun with a bright orange beard!

Here’s how to create Dollar Tree Leprechauns:

 

STEP ONE

 

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.

STEP TWO

 

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.

STEP FOUR

 

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.
