This paper clover is super simple to make and so versatile, too! We’ve included both PDF and SVG cut files for this project so you can resize the templates if you wish to make your clover larger or leave it cute and small. Feel free to mix up the number of leaves in your clovers as well. 

To start crafting, check out our supplies list below. Then download the template and tutorial.

Lucky Clovers

There are so many fun ways to use this paper clover project. You can pot them like we did for some cute St. Patrick’s Day decor. Or hide them around the house for a fun game for your little leprechauns. 

In addition to the little clovers, we made a larger paper clover and placed it in a cloche with some fake moss and a little paper ladybug. We’d love to see what you do with this DIY craft, so be sure to share your creativity with us on our crafters community page! Or you can use the hashtag #MadeWithLia on Instagram.

How to Make a Paper Clover

  1. Gather the tools and materials. Then download the pattern below.
  2. Cut out leaves from the paper. Cut double the amount of how many leaves you want (e.g. if you are making a 3-leaf clover, cut 6 leaves total).
  3. Draw on details with a white gel pen for the tops of the leaves.
  4. Cut pieces of wire about 4” long. Fold the non-drawn on leaves in half and glue the wires down the middle (the crease will help center the wires).
