St Patrick’s Day Crafts
Between the sneezes and coughs this morning we managed to fumble together our Leprechaun Trap for Saturday. We struck out last year, but we’re feeling lucky this year. We did our research and apparently Leprechauns can’t resist a bargain :)
Paint Chip Rainbow roof, Toilet Roll Tulips and Craft Stick Rope Ladder – more photos after the jump…
Paint Chip Rainbow (sponsored by Dulux :)
I drew a rainbow on a sheet of paper, cut the paint chips and arranged in M’s little paint tray and off she went. She decided herself what order she wanted the colours in, I didn’t think it mattered!
When all was dry I cut it out for the top of our box trap.
Toilet Roll Tulips
I think these turned out really pretty. Painted loo rolls and some cardboard tulip shapes, cut to slot together
The finished trap…
Isn’t it amazing what you can do with a little glue, pipe cleaners, and paper :)
