Leprechaun Garden

Download Activity Guide
Ever wanted to see a Leprechaun? Lure them in by creating this cute little garden full of greenery and of course a pot of gold.
  • Step 1 Paint your papier mache flowerpot gold and allow to dry. 
  • Step 2 Using your flowerpot as a guide tip it over and trace around the rim on a piece of decofoam then cut out using scissors. 
  • Step 3 Paint the decofoam green, and a bell cup black. These pieces will act as the base for your Leprechaun Garden and the pot of gold. 
  • Step 4 Cut a piece of spider mesh and wrap around your decofoam, pinning it at the back to secure it. 
  • Step 5 Using toothpicks and black jute twine tie knots around the toothpicks and form a ladder, use the image above as a guide
  • Step 6 Secure the toothpick ladder onto your flowerpot by sticky taping it on the inside. Then place your decofoam wrapped in spider mesh on top.
  • Step 7 Dip cotton balls into PVA glue then roll in glitter. Sit aside and allow to dry.
  • Step 8 Place the cotton balls into the bell cup. Complete by adding on a handle with some black twine and gold sequins.
  • Step 9 Gather a variety of flowers, leaves and branches from your garden and place them onto your flowerpot. To make them stand, push them firmly into the decofoam underneath.
  • Step 10 Finish by creating a path with coral sand and some gold touches with glitter and pieces from the metallic gold botanicals pack.
