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 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!

What a fun craft! Thanks for sharing via Mommy Monday.

I love this and your site! Such a smart & simple idea…those are the best! Totally letting my 5 year old do this Saturday!

Never seen a better post! ICOCBW

I told my grandmother how you helped. She said, “bake them a cake!”

It’s great to find someone so on the ball

I’ll try to put this to good use immediately.

Great insight. Relieved I’m on the same side as you.

I told my grandmother how you helped. She said, “bake them a cake!”

I’m impressed you should think of something like that

It’s a pleasure to find such rationality in an answer. Welcome to the debate.

That’s a smart answer to a difficult question.

Which came first, the problem or the solution? Luckily it doesn’t matter.

Oh this is to cute! Great idea! I love button art! I would love it if you would come and share this at my Monday of Many Blessings Link Up!!

This is adorable! I have a total weakness for button crafts anyway but this one is especially cute. Thanks for the awesome St. Pats craft to do with my kiddos.

What a fun and easy craft for St. Patrick’s Day. Please share on my Sunday’s Best linky party.
