    These are cute, but I have to admit something about disembodied leprechaun heads gives me the creeps – sort of like they’re severed heads placed on spikes. I made bump chenille leprechauns for my office’s St. Patrick’s Day party so people can have a “leprechaun hunt”. If they find one around the office the prize is a mini plastic cauldron filled with gold candy in a celo bag tied with a rainbow ribbon (“pot of gold at the end of the rainbow”) and a rosette prize ribbon in green, white, & orange, with a metalic green pipe cleaner four-leaf clover and a gold plastic coin glued in the middle. I thought about gluing the same vintage leprechaun head image I used for the chenille leprechauns in the middle as well so they’d be
    explicitly “Leprechaun Catcher Awards”, but I realized it might look like they caught, stuffed, and mounted the leprechaun’s head a la a big game hunter so I decided against it. Thank you for this crafting therepy session.
