As promised in an earlier post
here is a tutorial for making 4 leaf clover's or shamrocks
using left over heart shaped doily's from Valentine's Day.
Heart shaped paper doily's
Start by folding just the bottom of the doily
in an accordion type manner ...
hard to describe but like this...
Once folded staple the bottom at the fold.
Make 2 or 3 more...
((Yes I didn't know this but apparently there is a difference))
Once you have enough "leaves" made
staple them all together at the bottom.
Then slightly bend the lollipop stick
and attach it to the bottom of the doily
with a bit of hot glue.
I stuffed mine between the folds to hide the glue.
And that's all there is to it :)
So easy and they look pretty in a vase
or you could use them to make a banner
or add to your potted plants or whatever use you can find for them!
A pretty white cottage St. Patrick's Day decoration!!!
I also went out into the field and dug up some
wild clover and planted it in an urn vase
to add to my decorations this year!
I hope you enjoyed this tutorial
and have fun decorating!
