How can you find a four-leaf clover or the end of the rainbow without the help of a leprechaun? This craft is an easy and cheap way to bring the holiday to “life.”

These leprechaun hats are a cute craft to decorate any room for Saint Patrick’s Day. If you don’t have pots around the house, substitute a small plastic container. And, rather than buying a buckle, use yellow paint to make this as simple as possible!
