Potted Paper Clovers

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!


  1. Gather the tools and materials listed above. Then download the PDF template or SVG file below.
  2.  Cut crepe pieces according to the pattern, using scissors or a Cricut Maker.
  3. Glue a short piece of floral wire between two clover leaves with a slight overlap.
  4. 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!
