DIY Leprechaun Trap House

In just a few short weeks those mischievous little Leprechauns will be on the hunt for gold.  Do your kids want to get a good look at one up close?  Then you are definitely going to need to create a colorful and shimmery DIY Leprechaun Trap House to lure those wee little leprechauns in.

This St. Patrick’s Day I teamed up with DecoArt to create a DIY Leprechaun Trap House that even the smartest little leprechauns won’t be able to resist. Stop those pesky little leprechauns from stealing your gold with a colorful and fun DIY Leprechaun Trap House.

There are so many ways you can create your own leprechaun trap with recycled supplies, printables, paper, and paint. At our house,  we personally love any craft project that gives us the chance to break out the DecoArt paints so we decided to paint a wooden house from the craft store. We also thought this St. Patrick’s Day craft would be the perfect project to test out the new Galaxy Glitter paint from DecoArt.

If there is anything leprechauns love more than the color green it is GOLD, so we decided to add a shimmery gold layer to the DIY Leprechaun House with the Galaxy Glitter paint.  Once the shimmery glitter paint catches his eye we plan to lure him to our colorful Leprechaun Trap house with a giant pot of gold coins because we all know leprechauns can’t resist stealing gold.
