Make this fun mason jar leprechaun craft for your home decor or as a cute gift idea. If you love Saint Patrick’s Day, this is the perfect craft idea for you. This is also simple enough for kids to help with as well. Make your own little leprechaun today!
- Green Mason Jar Decoration
- Green Craft Felt Sheet
- Orange Tangerine Craft Felt Sheet
- Tan Felt (Can be found in this Assorted Felt Scrap Pack)
- Black Satin Ribbon
- Foamies Glitter Shamrock Stickers
- Large Googly Eyes (I used 25mm)

- Hot Glue and Glue Gun
Cut a beard like shape from the orange felt as shown below. Position the orange felt, eyes, and button nose onto the tan felt. Use hot glue to secure. To make this leprechaun craft kid friendly, use a kids glue and allow to dry.
From the green felt, trim a 2 inch strip from one end. Cut a circle that is the same size as the outside edge of the mason jar lid. Then cut another circle where the inner circle is the outside edge of the mason jar lid and the outer circle is about 1/2 to 3/4 of an inch larger.
