Leprechaun Photo Magnet St. Patrick's Day Craft

You don’t need the Luck o’ the Irish to make this adorable Leprechaun Photo Magnet St. Patrick’s Day Craft, because it is SO easy to do! So easy, in fact, that it is a fun project for kids to make themselves. You can turn a photo of your child into a little leprechaun complete with a beard and wide brimmed hat. With a magnet on the back, you can attach it to your fridge to add a bit of St. Patrick’s Day decor to your kitchen. And, since we know how much grandparents love photos of the grandkids, it makes a great gift idea.

You only need a few supplies to make this craft – basically craft foam, craft felt, a magnet strip – and your own photo of course! All of these supplies can be found at your local craft store, but I have also included links in the supply list below so you can find them online.
