St. Patricks Day Button Clover Craft & Shamrock Printable

St. Patricks Day Button Clover Craft & Shamrock Printable

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


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. AND – it comes with a free shamrock printable.

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 CraftPut 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.

Super cute! So glad you are sharing your creativity…mine has been running dry these days!

Those buttons have been screaming my name every time I check out at Michael’s but I just wasn’t sure what to do with all of them. Thanks for the inspiration!

This is really cute. It would also make a great fine motor skills exercise for little fingers.

This is adorable! Will have to do it with my preschooler and toddler. Pinned to my St. Paddy’s board. Stopping by from DIY Showcase. If you’re still linking up this weekend I’d love for you to share your clover at My Favorite Things Saturday.

How adorable! I have been looking for a fun craft to do with my 5 year old for St. Patty’s Day, and I think he would love this. Pinning it now!
