St. Patricks Day Button Clover Craft

I told myself I wasn’t going to make a St. Patrick’s Day craft. Too many holidays, you know? 

But then I went to the craft store and as I was checking out I saw these buttons. I’m a sucker for cute packaging, and these were practically screaming, “BUY ME!” anyway, so I tossed them in my cart. 

Green Buttons

Buttons!

I had a plan for them, and it actually ended up being as easy as I’d envisioned (yay), so I’m sharing it here today. This easy St. Patrick’s Day craft is kid-friendly, inexpensive (the buttons were less than $5, and I had the rest of the stuff around the house), and doesn’t take long to complete.

Button Clover Craft

This button clover is super easy to make!

Supplies You’ll Need:

  • Paper with a clover on it – you can draw your own, or print the one I’ve provided below (I printed it on card stock)
  • Frame (without the glass)
  • Buttons
  • Glue (I used a craft/tacky glue)

If you need a clover, just click on the picture below to download your own.

Place the clover template in the frame before you get started. It’s much easier this way!

Easy St. Patrick's Day Craft

Put glue on the paper, and place the buttons on the glue. Move quickly, so you can move them around and make them all fit before the glue dries. I actually found it was easier to cover most of the clover with glue and then put the buttons on; this way, I could move them around and fit them together.

Give it some time to dry, and then…that’s it. Easiest craft ever. I don’t think I spent more than fifteen minutes on it!

    Super cute and easy! But four leaf clovers aren’t Irish! (It’s a common misconception!) Shamrocks only have three leaves! :) this could easily be done as a three leaf clover though!

      Ha! I actually googled “shamrock” a couple of weeks ago when I was putting this together because I wasn’t sure if I should call it a shamrock or a clover…and I learned exactly what you just said (which I had no idea about before I googled it)…but I decided that I’d just roll with it and hope no one noticed. LOL!

      My five-year-old loved it (even though I didn’t let him help with this one…ha) and my two-year-old was obsessed with the buttons and was more interseted in playing with them than with making the actual craft!
