1. Begin by folding and twisting the green pipe cleaners into a W shape. This way they will look like stems.
2. Glue the pipe cleaners to your paper. Press firmly so you know they adhere well.
3. Take your green paint blotter and practice making dots a few times on scrap paper. This will also get the ink running nicely.
4. Begin making your clovers by creating clusters of four dots next to each other. Repeat this process until you have the number of clovers you wish.

Once your clovers are dry, you are free to display this piece proudly! Frame it, pin it up, tape it up, or stick it on the fridge for all to see. This is such a fun and frugal craft that no doubt you will enjoy just as much as the kids.

So head to your local dollar store and give this easy St. Patrick’s Day craft a try!

    I love how simple and inexpensive this craft is to make. My grandson would really enjoy doing this craft with me because it isn’t overly complicated and he won’t get frustrated!

    These are so cute and a very nice craft to do for St. Patrick’s Day. This would be an easy craft to do with my niece when I babysit her. She loves doing crafts-it keeps her busy.

    My little Grand daughter Julia says they look like 4 eye balls on a stick, LOL. Her favorite Irish craft idea is to tie green ribbons & bits of green cloth from a worn pillow case together, weaving them over an old straw hat. It’s quite clever for a girl of 6.
