How to make Chenille Leprechaun Dolls

Download Leprechaun Hat Printable.

Print the leprechaun hat pdf in color on white card-stock.

For each doll you  will need two pieces of chenille stem (one with one bump and one with two bumps).

Fold longer piece in half.

Slip short piece in the middle.

Twist the folded chenille stem above and below the short piece to hold the short piece in place.


Bend up ends to create tiny hands and feet.

Glue the hat to the face and the shamrock to a short piece of wire. Glue these pieces to the body. Glue a toothpick to one leg.

Stick the friendly leprechauns into cupcakes!
