Four Leaf Clover Craft


Four Leaf Clover Craft Supplies


  • Q-Tips
  • Green Craft Paint 
  • Paper Plates
  • Small Canvas
  • Green or brown fine tip marker


How to make your Four Leaf Clover Canvas Craft


STEP 1: Get everything ready


Gather and layout all of your supplies. Cover the surface you’re working on just to be safe, we’re working with green paint after all! Start by applying a small amount of green craft paint on the paper plate. It’ll be easier to access it this way.

STEP 2: Prepare your paint




Dip the Q-Tip in the green paint. I recommend to give it a few tries at first, practice dabbing on the paper plate or a paper towel at first until you get the hang of it.

STEP 3: Create your clover leaves



You want to use the Q-tip as a stamp. Just dab, press and release to create the small leaves of your clover. You can do three or four-leaf clovers (or shamrocks), or both to have more variety in your design.

STEP 4: Have fun and create tons of little clovers



Keep creating clusters of little leaves using the Q-Tip as a stamp until you’re happy with your work. Let it dry once you’re done.

STEP 5: Add some extra details



To add the finishing touches to your clover canvas check the paint is dry and then use a fine tip marker to create a stem for each clover. Don’t worry too much about it! Just make a quick and fine line below each clover.

You’re done! Super easy, right? Now you can display your fabulous painted canvas any way you want to. You could frame it or add a ribbon to hang it up on the wall.  It would also make a great gift to give to someone for St Patricks Day. 

We love this four-leaf clover craft! It’s such an easy way to have fun with paint and encourage creativity in toddlers and preschoolers. We hope you enjoy it as much as we did.
