Little Leprechauns!

Who could forget these adorable little "love bugs"? 

Certainly not me.. especially since they won't let me!  So I decided that in honor of St Patty's Day they needed to bring a little luck to this semi Irish household!  So here they are remade into my Lucky Little Leprechauns!
And here is a quick tutorial on you can score some luck of your own!

four wood blocks of varying sizes
acrylic paint
paint chip samples
Mod Podge
cut out heads
rainbow colored ribbon
a little imagination!

I started with my four wood blocks.  I painted them to look like grass and sky. 

Then I made a template for the Leprechaun outfits the kids would wear. 

Then I cut the shapes of their outfits out of the paint chips.

  Once they were cut out I Mod Podged them down onto the corresponding block. 

Then I used my Cricut to cut out the word "Lucky".  
And of course every Leprechaun HAS to have a pot of gold!  So I made mine out of black paper and pom poms.
Last I added ribbon to the back in the shape and colors of a rainbow.

Now I have one very unhappy 5 year old who did not want to be a "Love Bug" and is even more horrified to be made into a Leprechaun.  But I had a lot of fun making it.. so there!  (insert rasberry sound here!)
