We love these vellum paper clover lanterns that Krista designed with their slight nod to St. Patrick’s Day. Because the design is so subtle, you could easily make them well before the holiday and keep them up long after, too.
As with most of our paper lanterns, we recommend using a cutting machine to help you cut the intricate details. Otherwise you can always use a detail knife to cut this project by hand.

When you’re finished assembling your vellum paper clover lanterns, you can add some LED tea lights or fairy lights. This is a great way to highlight the papercut details and create a soft, warm glow — perfect for cozy evenings. If you’re looking to create a cute, little display for St. Paddy’s Day, place your lanterns on a mantel or table next to our potted crepe paper clovers.

Crafting tip: You can also use thinner paper like copy paper for a similar effect.

Our printable template and SVG cut file includes 2 designs. The one in the styled shots is made up of 3 layers of cut vellum to create depth, and the second is a single layer design. Cut out, glue the clover stems to the innermost layer using a clear drying glue stick, and roll into a cylinder. Curling the paper over the sharp edge of a tabletop helps. Then roll and glue the outermost layer on top of that.
