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
- Green Cardstock (I used 1 sheet for this project)
- Small Heart Craft Punch
- Floral Wire
- Hot Glue and Glue Gun
- Mixed Media Scissors

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. 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 a few 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.
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!
