(Pictured next to the frame my St. Patrick’s Day Cloth Wreath)
We have very few St. Patrick’s Day decorations — yet we both love the color green and Mr. Woodsy is a smidge Irish. Last year, I was on back-to-back-to-back business trips in the month of March and subsequently spent my St. Patrick’s Day on the road. With that being said I had little to no energy to work on any St. Patrick’s Day decorations. This year–I’m home *although beyond busy, and I wanted to make a few decorations for the beer drinking holiday! I always have shadow boxes to fill and I’ve recently bought more burlap that one really truly needs. With that being said I knew I wanted to make some sort of rustic St. Pat’s Day decoration with it.
Green & Beige Burlap
Four Leaf Clover Print-Out
Hot Glue Gun
Invisible ink marker
Card Stock for mounting
1. Cut out your four leaf clover and then trace it on to your green burlap
2. Cut out your four-leaf clover. You’ll notice below–my clover isn’t perfect–it’s ok. No one is perfect!
3. Next, cut a piece of tan burlap so that it can be wrapped around the card stock. Begin glueing around the card stock to adhere the burlap to the card stock.
This is what the card stock should look like wrapped.
4. Next, figure out where you want to display your four-leaf clover on your tan burlap.
5. Next, carefully begin hot glueing the clover on to the tan burlap. I used my Hot Glue Gun Helpers so that I didn’t burn myself.
6. Clover is glued on and ready to be placed in the shadow box.
Here is what my finished Burlap Wrapped Four-Leaf Clover looks like. If you like this project. Make sure you stop by the Bowdabra blog and learn how to make a St. Patrick’s Day Cloth Wreath!
