Quick Build #6: St. Patrick’s Day Leprechaun

Top of the mornin’ to ya, brick-building aficionados! You don’t have to be Irish to celebrate St. Patrick’s Day, so crack a set open (or maybe even a beer) and try your luck building this little guy. Here are instructions to build a LEGO leprechaun complete with a pot of gold at the end of the rainbow! We wanted to give you something green and we came up with this green mean money-making machine on your screen.

Instructions to Build a Leprechaun

The build starts with the stand, which in this case is a pot with no gold. (We’ll get there, don’t worry, I know you came for the coins.) Right after that, we bring some color to the build with a simple rainbow.

Finally, when you have everything built and ready, get around 20 gold studs and just drop them into the pot. See, now you have all the dough you need for that delicious soda bread.

You can download the parts list for the Leprechaun here. May the luck of the Irish be with you as you seek out your own pot of gold at the end of the rainbow!
