Once you have arranged the required materials to make the leprechaun trap, you can follow these steps:
- Cover the box
Take the box and cut an opening on the top of the box using a scissor. Next, you will need to cover the outside of the box using Green construction paper. You can use the transparent tape to keep the paper in place. Need not to be concerned about the tape appearing on the corner as it will be covered in the next step.
- Add the Garland
Now, using the decorative St. Patrick’s day garland, you will need to cover the edges of the box where the tape is visible. Make sure to stick the garland firmly.
- Decorate the Box
After adding the garland to the edges, you will need to decorate the box using the stickers and embellishments. You can add the stickers and embellishments to the box as you desire to make it look beautiful.
- Cover the Trap
After decorating the box with stickers and embellishments, you will need to cover the trap. For this, you will need to cut a piece of constructions paper. Make sure the paper you cut out is a bit larger than opening in the top of the box. Tape the paper to the inside of the box along one side. This will make the way for your leprechaun. As your leprechaun will walk on this part of the trap, he will directly fall in the trap.
- Create a Rainbow
Next, you will need to create a rainbow shape using the rainbow paper and tape it to the box firmly. Now, paste the cotton balls at the base of the window using glue to make clouds.
- Add a Pot of Gold
After creating a rainbow and pasting cotton balls, you will need to add your pot of gold on the top of the trap to lure the leprechaun. If you want you can decorate the trap with more items of your choice.
And, this is how you can create a Leprechaun Trap for the St. Patrick’s Day.
