Materials for Leprechaun Mason Jar Craft for St. Patrick’s Day:
- Small canning jar with lid
- Green paint
- Small round St. Patrick’s Day sticker
- Black glitter cardstock
- Gold glitter cardstock
- Green ribbon
- Hot glue gun

Instructions for Leprechaun Mason Jar Craft for St. Patrick’s Day:
- Begin by pouring some green paint into a small canning jar.
- Place the lid on the jar and shake it until the entire inside of the jar is coated in paint.
- Pour the excess paint out into a trash can or other container.
- Remove the lid and let the jar sit to dry overnight.
- Cut a thin strip from the black glitter cardstock.
- Use a hot glue gun to attach the black strip of cardstock to the bottom of the painted jar.
- Cut out a small square from the gold glitter cardstock. Make it slightly wider than the black strip that you glued onto your jar, and cut a smaller square out of the middle of it.
- Glue the gold glitter square shape onto the center of the black glitter strip on your jar.
- Cut a piece of green ribbon. Fold in one side of the ribbon to the center and secure it with glue. Fold the other side into the center and secure it with glue as well, so that it forms a bow shape.
- Cut a small rectangle of ribbon, and wrap it around the middle of your bow shape.
- Secure it with glue to form a mini bow tie.
- Glue the mini bow tie to the top of your jar centered above the gold square shape you just glued on.
- Attach a St. Patrick’s Day round sticker to the front of your painted jar between the bow tie and the gold glitter square buckle shape.
