Leprechaun Trap : No Leprechauns Allowed!

Today's Craft:
Leprechaun Trap : No Leprechauns Allowed!

Do you think you can lure a leprechaun into an inverted cone trap? Give it a try...

Craft Project Directions:
To make this craft project you will need a small box, string, scissors, tape, glue, markers or crayons, glitter, and colored construction paper.

To begin take your box and cut a hole slightly larger than a quarter in the top- you will insert the bottom of your cone into this hole. Next squirt some glue through the hole and pour in some glitter so when you look into the hole you see sparkling glitter which will look like elf treasure to the unsuspecting leprechaun.

Now take a piece of green construction paper, bend into a large cone (a large funnel shape), secure it with tape, stick the small end into the hole in the box and tape/glue in place. Use the picture as a guide.

Next take a length of string and knot it every inch and attach one end to the top of the inverted cone- this is a ladder for the leprechaun. Now decorate your trap with colored paper, glitter, crayons and markers, St. Patrick's Day symbols, and be sure to add signs which say things like 'No Leprechauns Allowed', 'For Eleves Only', 'Only Elf Treasure Allowed Beyond this Point', etc.

Let dry and place your trap in a good leprechaun catching spot. With any luck a leprechaun will see your trap, think it's an elf treasure hiding place, climb up the side of the cone, and when he sees the glittering gold at the bottom lose his balance and slide into the box where he will be trapped. Good Luck!

Happy St. Patrick's Day! Enjoy Crafting!
