Easy Four Leaf Clovers

These easy four leaf clovers are sure to bring a little extra good luck! To make your own, you will need, paper for the background, green paper, scissors, and green masking tape.

Use the green masking tape to place the stems of your four leaf clovers on the background paper.


Cut heart shapes from the sheet of green paper. [Tip - You know those heart-shaped cookie cutters you have leftover from Valentine's Day? Trace them, and they make perfect patterns for these.] These will form the leaves of the clover. I placed dots of glue on the paper and Emily formed the clovers herself!


She had a lot of fun doing this, and cracked herself up while thinking of all the crazy things that could happen with all this good luck.


Perfect for St. Patrick's Day!


I couldn't resist adding a few of these to the wall in the sewing room. Don't they look so cheerful?


Mark, pick up some lottery tickets on your way home, will you? I'm feeling lucky!

@ MaryAnne -- Thank you! They make me smile every time I go in that room!

Lisa Anne said...

I need to make these if you are feeling lucky, because I sure do want to win the lotto.

Great craft - it might even take place in our house. "Might" is an operative word here :)

Christy said...

This looks like fun! Emily always looks like she is having fun! I might have to add some of these to our arts and crafts room. Cute!

I love how they look on the wall - really cheers up a room.

CUTE! I love the ones on the wall. :) We may have to make those now that we are back on our schedule (and The Man is back at work.)

Those are really cute. Looks and sounds easy to make too.

That looks so fun! I would have never thought to put the glue dots on the paper, but I can see how that would really help! And the clovers on the wall idea is adorable! You're so creative! :-)

Hey, you ARE NOT allowed to win the lottery- those Powerball winnings are MINE...perhaps I need to create my own luck with paper clovers too...

Love the shamrocks on the wall. I just might have to give that a try it looks so cheerful.

Such a cute idea!

What a shame, no comment from Mark.....
Great idea to put the glue dots. If I did that the pictures might turn out like I was thinking.....

Mark said...

@Ticia

Sheesh! I was busy for one day and look what happens!

So, here's your comment. :-D

Where does one find green masking tape?

Danielle said...

Very cool! Will have to do this little craft and I LOVE the one's on the wall too! Adorable! :D

Jessica Monte said...

I love it! And I'm such a photo dork that I liked the green scissors used for this activity too.

Right now our windows are dressed up with cut out shamrocks that I traced from a store set. I'm not sure who loves decorating for the holidays more, Annabelle or her mom? lol.

Valerie @ Frugal Family Fun Blog said...

@ Shannon C -- I found it at an art supply store, like Dick Blick. You could also glue strands of green yarn.

Stephanie Griffith said...

Those are so cute lined up on the wall like that!

Cheryl said...

I love the idea of making the shamrocks out of heart shapes. Seems obvious when I think about it.

We have a couple of people in the family coming up with important exams in the next month. I think we'll use this idea in our Good Luck cards.
