If you love to decorate for St. Patrick’s Day but want something you can keep in your home long after the holiday, try making these crepe paper clovers! This project is super simple, so it is perfect for beginners. And it’s such a sweet little way to bring some greenery in your home for spring.
Another fun way to use these crepe paper clovers is to create a head wreath for your St. Patrick’s Day celebration.
As Luck Would Have It…
Are you looking for that perfect piece of desk decor that you can use to bring some life to your workspace? What if you could make a lucky piece of desk decor?! With St. Patrick’s Day around the corner, we are all thanking our lucky stars (or clovers) for this fabulously easy DIY. Pick out a cute little planter (we found ours at West Elm) and make a charming display of paper clovers that you can use to welcome spring. The best part is that because these are made of paper, they will stay lively all year round!
- Lia Griffith Extra-Fine Crepe Paper — Cypress

- Draw details on the leaves with a white pencil.
Full tutorial available for members to download below.
Because the paper clovers are so delicate with the extra-fine crepe paper, we wanted to use a small planter that could balance out the appearance. If you are sticking these clovers into a terra cotta planter, feel free to add painted designs or pretty ribbon to give the project some extra flair!

When you load the SVG file into Cricut it states to make it with the Cricut Maker. However I do not own that, I only have the Explore Air 2. Would that still be ok to try to make these to save me time in cutting out the leaves? If so do you have a suggestion on the cutting setting to use?
The Maker is the only Cricut we have been able to cut crepe paper on because it has a rotary blade. We have not had any luck cutting crepe paper on the Explore Air 2.
Is there a svg file available for the shamrock / clover?
The SVG has been added!
Lia – may I ask where you found that adorable mouse dish that holds the clovers? Would love to have one.!
Thank you! You find the most wonderful little treasures!
It was from West Elm a year or two ago– I don’t think they carry them any more but I have seen other adorable little animals!
Lia, I love all your paper flowers, actually all your crafts! Would you be able to make
snowdrops? They are so delicate and pretty, and usually the first to flower after winter.
They would be sweet in a teacup, I have one from my grandmother that I cherish.
Thanks for all you do.
Thank you! We actually made a snowdrop from tissue paper recently 🙂 https://liagriffith.com/tissue-paper-snowdrops/
