A Leprechaun Garden

Grow a garden of shamrocks and you just might catch a leprechaun.

Grow a garden of shamrocks and you just might catch a leprechaun.

For years the kids and I have been trying to catch a real live leprechaun. Those leprechauns are mischievous little ones and quick at that! All that we have been able to capture are a few of their golden chocolate coins. This year will be different. Just like creating a garden to attract fairies, we decided to create a garden just for leprechauns. I just can't help but smile as I walk by this sweet little garden. Who knows, this year might just be the year we catch one! I'm hoping they find the golden mushrooms irresistible.

Supplies:

  • A planter. I chose one that looks like a rock. It made me think of the Blarney Stone.
  • Gold bakeable modeling clay, available at your local craft store
  • Baking sheet
  • Oven
  • Floral wire
  • A pair of wire cutters
  • Potting soil
  • A small 4 inch Oxalis (shamrock) plant
  • Moss

Now follow the directions in the photo gallery below to create your very own leprechaun garden.
