Leprechaun Mason Jar Instructions:
Begin by pouring some green paint into a small mason jar.
Place the lid on the jar and shake it until the entire inside of the jar is coated in paint.
Pour the excess paint out into a trash can or other container.
Remove the lid and let the jar sit to dry overnight.
Cut a thin strip from the black glitter cardstock.
Use a hot glue gun to attach the black strip of cardstock to the bottom of the painted jar.
Cut out a small square from the gold glitter cardstock. Make it slightly wider than the black strip that you glued onto your jar, and cut a smaller square out of the middle of it.
Glue the gold glitter square shape onto the center of the black glitter strip on your jar.
Cut a piece of green ribbon. Fold in one side of the ribbon to the center and secure it with glue.
Fold the other side into the center and secure it with glue as well, so that it forms a bow shape.
Cut a small rectangle of ribbon, and wrap it around the middle of your bow shape. Secure it with glue to form a mini bow tie.
Glue the mini bow tie to the top of your jar centered above the gold belt buckle.
Attach a St. Patrick’s Day round sticker to the front of your painted jar between the bow tie and the gold glitter square buckle shape.
Fill your painted jar with St. Patrick’s Day flowers or other decorations and enjoy!

I find some St Patrick’s Day items a bit flimsy” I like the Mason Jar because it is not. Also, the variety of possibilities for creating is very appealing to me..
