How To Make The Handprint Four Leaf Clover Craft
Cut four heart shapes out of green construction paper (or 3 if you'd like a handprint shamrock instead). The hearts should be bigger than the child's hand.
Next, make a green painted handprint on each paper heart. Alternatively, you could make the handprints first and then cut a heart shape around it afterwards. Let dry.
Arrange the hearts into the shape of a 4-leaf clover or shamrock.
Tape or glue it together on the backside.
Cut a stem shape out.Either tape or glue the stem to the backside.
Now the St. Patrick's Day handprint 4-leaf clover is ready to be hung up as artwork on the wall or refrigerator!
