Our friends over at FamilyFun Magazine are sharing a fun and easy St. Patrick’s Day craft you can do with your kiddos today! Legend has it, if a child hangs this banner over their door, leprechauns might just leave a gold coin surprise in it when they’re not looking!
Lucky Charm Craft
Craft how-to courtesy FamilyFun Magazine.
- Cut two of each of the letters in the word “lucky” from colored paper. (Ours are 3 inches high.)
- Sandwich the matching letters around a length of string and secure them with a glue stick. Leave a couple of feet of excess string at each end of the banner.
- Cut two matching pot shapes from black felt. Glue the shapes together along the sides and bottom. Let the glue dry.
- Using the string at the banner’s bottom and a tapestry needle, stitch across one layer of the pot’s opening. Tie the end of the string to itself just below the letter Y, as shown. Tie a loop in the string above the L for hanging.
