Simple Leprechaun Dress Up


Your little leprechauns will love making and wearing this costume we designed for our local parenting magazine Raising Arizona Kids.

Raising Arizona Kids Magazine March 2012

Made from construction paper and string, you’ll have a real, live leprechaun on your hands in a matter of minutes, but watch out, I hear they’re tricky folks.


A special thank you goes out to Aimee’s neighbor Jenn who rescued us during this photo shoot. I’d accidentally left home my favorite portrait lens, and Jenn (the fabulous photographer behind this shoot) rushed right over and let us borrow hers to finish out the shoot. What a Supermom! Thanks Jenn.

  2. Having read this I believed it was very enlightening. I appreciate you
    finding the time and effort to put this short article together.
    I once again find myself spending a significant amount of time both reading and
    commenting. But so what, it was still worthwhile!
