Simple Clover Leaf Bouquet

This St. Patrick's Day create a simple and inexpensive bouquet of Shamrocks to add to your holiday decor! This little bouquet coordinates with my book page St. Patrick's Day banner and was created using a simple set of supplies that you're sure to have lying around your house!


Supplies you will need to create your own Clover Leaf Bouquet:

A recycled bottle
A variety of coordinating scrap paper
Tape or other adhesive
Wooden Skewers
Buttons
Twine


Use google images to find a clover leaf to use as a template. I don't have a cutting machine, so I traced my clover leaves onto the back of my papers and cut them out using scissors.

Next, embellish the leaves using buttons, add some text or anything else you'd like. I kept mine really simple, but anything goes!

Now attach the leaves to your wooden skewers using tape or your other favourite adhesive. Place them in a vase or recycled bottle and add some twine or ribbon as a last touch.
