Four Leaf Clover Template


DIY Four Leaf Clover
Crepe paper
28-gauge cloth covered floral wire
White glue
Heart shaped paper punch
1. Begin by cutting heart shapes out of the green crepe
paper (with the grain of the crepe positioned
vertically) either by using a heart shaped paper punch
or by creating a heart shaped template in cardboard,
tracing it onto the crepe paper and cutting them out
by hand. If you chose to use a paper punch it often
works best to layer a piece of copy paper over the
crepe paper and then feeding then both into the
paper punch -- without the copy paper layer, the soft
crepe paper may stretch and tear. Punch three hearts
for each clover and then fold each in half.
2. Cut three identical pieces of 28-gauge cloth covered
floral wire for each clover.
3. Take one piece of wire and lightly coat the end in
white glue, about ¼". Place the glue covered wire in
the fold of one of the folded heart positioning it in the
bottom center at the point of the heart. Close the
folded heart and pinch the crepe paper around the
end of the wire to secure it in place and then partially
open the fold to create one of the clover
leaves. Repeat this to create all three leaves and then
allow them to try for a couple of minutes each.
