How to Make Paper Four Leaf Clovers Using Craft Punches
Paper crafting relaxes me. I just really enjoy doing it. Paper flowers are especially fun. I came up with this little St. Patrick’s Day craft. The four leaf clover art I made recently inspired me for this project. I thought that maybe if I made a whole patch of four leaf clovers it would bring me luck! Ha! I like it because it’s a subtle décor piece for St. Patrick’s Day. Here is how to make paper four leaf clovers.
Time: 45-60 Minutes

A quick YouTube video for your reference. I’d love it if you subscribed to my YouTube channel! On it, you will find over one hundred of craft videos.
Cut floral wire in 2 to 3-inch-long pieces with multimedia scissors. You will need one for each clover. Each clover needs four hearts. Punch out the hearts with a craft punch. Next, fold each heart in half.
Prep several hearts before using the hot glue. Using a hot glue gun place a small dab of glue on the tip of the floral wire.
Place the tip of one folded heart into the glue. Let it dry for three to four seconds. Glue on the other three hearts to form a four leaf clover.
Place foam inside a container or vase. (Tip: I keep Styrofoam from shipping packages for projects like this. It’s so expensive in the store!) Place each clover into the Styrofoam one by one until your clover patch is complete. Use a small shallow container similar to what you would use for mini succulents.
I may make another one in a vintage teacup. I think it would be adorable! In case you missed it, check out the hombre four leaf clover wall art I made! I have also been working on several craft videos. Come visit me on YouTube!
