When my boys were little, they loved the excitement of trying to catch a naughty leprechaun. Each year we would try to make leprechaun traps that actually work. But, we never caught one! This year, I made an adorable leprechaun trap project that anyone can make!
f you decide to make a purchase through my links, I will be paid a small commission for it. This doesn’t cost you anything additional.
Simple Leprechaun Trap Ideas
Several years ago I hosted a St. Patrick’s Day Celebration with Cricut, and I shared a DIY leprechaun trap. I LOVED that cute little house.
And, I have used my Sizzix to make a little milk carton-style Leprechaun House for St. Patrick’s Day. There is even a cute little printable your little ones can color to customize your leprechaun house!
Simple Leprechaun Trap Project
This simple little leprechaun trap project was so easy to make and cost less than $10! Plus, if you have a little one that loves rainbows, you can repurpose the trap as room decor after St. Paddy’s.
First, you will need a small rainbow piñata. You can find three for less than $20 on Amazon. I got this one at Party City for about $5. You will also need gold coins or candies, scissors, and an index card or card stock.
Once you have all of your supplies, cut a small flap on the top of the rainbow. I used the holes from the hanger to start the cut, and only cut three sides of a small square. After you cut the flap, pull it up like a small trap door. Next, fold an index card into fourths (long). And cut out small rectangles in every other section. This will create stairs for the leprechaun to walk up. After you cut the rectangles, unfold the index card, and cut it in half. (You will have two sets of stairs.)
Now, it’s time to set up the simple leprechaun trap. I put ours on a green milk glass cake plate and spread the gold candy around the rainbow. Finally, I added the two ladders for the leprechaun to climb onto the cake plate and then up to the trap.
