SUPPLIES FROM THE BAG
- Green construction paper
- EVERYTHING from your craft bag (let me help you fill it up with the “right” stuff)
- Printable Clover Template
This craft, like EVERY craft on this site, is made from the same master list of supplies. My hope is that this will make crafting with your family more enjoyable and accessible! It will definitely ensure that when you find that minute in the midst of your busy day, where you want to just be with your kids and do something fun, YOU WILL BE READY! Find out what to put in your bag (lots of these things you will already have in your house).
Step 1: Cut out the clover
- Get out your green construction paper and draw a clover that fills up that entire page.
- OR…print this template to use and trace it onto your green paper
- Cut out the large clover
- Now…MAKE MORE! You can never have too much good luck!
*This project takes slightly more advanced cutting skills. So, if you are working with a preschooler or toddler (or even a kindergartener), you will need to do the cutting. But leave all of the other fun stuff to them.
Step 2: Decorate
- Now get from your bag whatever items you think would make your clover festive and fun! Really, there is no wrong way to decorate these St. Patrick’s Day gems. Your lucky clover craft should be as unique as you are!
- Here are a few ideas to get you started..
Simply glue on some pompoms. They can be green or a rainbow of colors.
Use your hole punch to make holes all around the outside. Then lace some yarn through the holes.
Beads are not just for stringing. You can also glue them onto a project, like this decorated shamrock craft.
Give your lucky clover crafts a happy face.
And one of my absolute favorite craft supplies is washi tape. If you are not familiar with this product, it is simple a decorative paper tape. It can be torn and cut and placed onto almost any surface. Plus washi tape comes in more designs than you can ever count.
These ideas are just the tip of the iceberg. There are so many things that you can do with these clover crafts. I cannot wait to see what you do with your shamrock crafts.
Here are some ideas for displaying your decorated Clover Crafts!
- Put them in a scrapbook to share with your friends and family
- Glue them to the front of a lunch bag to make into a fun gift bag or just a way to brighten up your day at meal time
- Get out your white yarn and clothespins and make them into a banner. Put it somewhere in your home where everyone can enjoy your creations!
- Lay them around your dining table for a colorful tablescape while you enjoy some cabbage and corned beef.
- Put them in frames for a more formal holiday decoration.
- Glue them to the front of a card and give them away with a special message for St. Patrick’s Day!
