Four Leaf Clover Crafts

Are you thinking about spring? 
I can't wait for warm sunshine and 
and no more snow. The snow has been pretty but 
I'm so over it. To welcome spring in a few weeks I made this cute cartoon 4 leaf clover.
 Isn't he adorable!
    To get started with this project you will need: 
burlap, markers, Mod Podge, scissors, glue and a paint stick.
Draw four hearts on burlap and color with a green magic marker. Here I used a valentine heart for the template.
 Paint the green burlap hearts with Mod Podge.
 I hung the burlap up to dry. I found the handle to my stove was the perfect place for the burlap to dry. 
It took about 20 minutes.
 In the meantime with a black marker 
I drew out a cartoon face for the clover 
and painted it with Mod Podge.
Cut out all your hearts and glue all the pieces together. I added extra burlap to the back to keep the clover petals together. I used a painter paint stick that I painted green for the handle. If you do leave the 4 leaf clover outside you will need to use an outdoor sealer on it. 
  Have fun placing the eyes on each clover. 
Here they are close.  
Here the eyes are far apart. 

Four leaf clovers are fun and easy to make. 
It's a great craft to do with your kids or grandkids. 

I just looked out the window and I see more snow flurries. Winter is not leaving anytime soon. 
What I do want to leave is my head cold. 
Happy Crafting! Stay Warm :-)
XO,
Dee
