Primary TechniquePaper Crafts
- Colored paper
- Craft glue
- Craft foam
- Gnome template (Download below)
Select colored paper of your choice but make sure to keep 2 different shades of green colored papers if you want to craft a leprechaun gnome.
Trace the template patterns on the selected papers and cut them out using scissors.
Cut out a small piece of craft foam (it should be smaller than the nose cutout).
Glue the foam cutout near the top side of the beard cutout.
Glue the nose cutout on the top of the foam cutout. This will give the nose a 3d look.
Glue the square frame cutout on the middle of the strip (belt cutout).
Glue the belt pattern near a side of the round body cutout.
Glue the beard pattern on the body cutout as well but at the opposite side to the belt.
Grab the shamrock and hat cutouts.
Glue the shamrock cutouts on the hat cutout as you like.
Glue the paper hat on the top side of the beard pattern, right above the nose.
Glue the shoe cutouts on the bottom side of the body pattern to complete the craft.
