how to make st. patrick’s day shamrock with ribbon

Lucky Step #1:
Sketch out a simple rainbow cascading into a four leaf clover design onto a flat piece of cardboard. Because this is your lucky day, here is a free four leaf clover template.Create budget St. Patrick's Day craftsLucky Step #2:
So, my 4-year old took the liberty to add his own rainbow touches to the piece of cardboard. I swear, you turn your back for one minute and the markers come out! Moving on…

Wrap a piece of floral wire around the middle section of the cardboard. On the backside, twist the two ends together and form a loop. This will be what you will hang your Good Luck Clover decor with.

Lucky Step #3:
Begin hot gluing the ribbon to form your rainbow. Leave a small end of the ribbon dangling off the cardboard. You will glue this end to the backside of the cardboard.

Attach the ribbon in a cascading, figure eight manner.

Luck ‘o the Irish Friendly Tip: Don’t worry about completely covering the cardboard the first time ’round. Go back and fill in any empty spots, or areas where the cardboard is peeking through, with extra ribbon. I cut and glue strips to fill in such areas.
