How to Catch a Leprechaun

You may have already started on your quest to capture a leprechaun this St. Patrick’s Day season by using your Magic Leprechaun Finders.

But the ultimate tool a Happy Home needs to capture those wee lil’ men is a Leprechaun Trap.

My next door neighbor hosted a Leprechaun Trap Making Party last year and this is what the Happy Buddy and I came up with…

We propped that baby up with a pen, sprinkled some Lucky Charms all around, and waited for our victory.

Unfortunately we didn’t catch a leprechaun last year.

That stinker just left some tiny footprints, a pile of green glitter all over the kitchen counter, and turned all of our milk green (which the Happy Buddy refused to drink).

We’re hoping to try again this year…

Maybe a different Leprechaun Trap Design will do the trick?

I’m in love with this trap from The Crafting Chicks.

It’s quite remarkable how many Happy Homes attempt this seemingly impossible task every St. Patrick’s Day.  Such clever ideas!

Happy Leprechaun Catching! :-)
