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.
- 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
- Floral wire
- A pair of wire cutters
- Potting soil
- A small 4 inch Oxalis (shamrock) plant
