Little Clover Clips- for St. Patricks Day

Pin It
You can make your own luck...or lucky charm this St. Patrick's Day, with these cute 
Four leaf clover clips.

You can clip a note to them, as a holiday surprise..clip to a treat from 
a leprechaun. Or even stand the clip upright, and use as a place card holder.

These are really simple to make. In fact my kids came up with the idea, when I let them play
around with a bag of random wooden shapes and some Popsicle sticks.

 I used a regular, wooden clothespin, and then I had
a bag of irregular wooden shapes, you can find at most craft stores.
Pick out 1 star, and 4 little hearts, the same size.
The star will be your base, add glue to this, and attach the petals
to the glue on the base. 
 All points toward the center.

 Then allow your clover petals to dry.
You can attach these clovers to anything...when my kids made these, they
attached them to popsicle sticks, and we displayed them in our plants.
 Then attatch to your clothes pin....the end that pinches things...not the 
end you press on.

Then wait for it to dry. They look pretty cute natural wood color, but 
I liked the green for the holiday, adding a little gold glitter paint over the final coat.

Have a Happy St. Patrick's Day!
