Do you want a 4 leaf clover for St. Patrick’s Day? It’s very simple to take heart-shaped cookie cutters and make them into a clover. Great for trivets or a decoration. This project is inexpensive and very easy to make.
How do you make a clover?
You will need the following supplies:
- 4 heart shaped cookie cutters
- Hot glue gun or glue of your choice
Easy 4 Leaf Clover & Shamrock DIY Video
Put a little glue near the bottom of one of the cookie cutters.
I am using a cool glue gun and the glue doesn’t get very hot. Be careful as some hot glue guns run very hot and it’s easy to burn yourself with them. You could wear gloves to protect your fingers and hands if you do have a glue gun that runs on the hot end.
Stick 2 of the heart cookie cutters together.
Add hot glue to another cookie cutter.
Stick the third cookie cutter to the other two continuing to make a clover shape.
Add glue to both sides of the last cookie cutter.
Your clover is complete.
Use the clover as a trivet.
Set up your clover as a display, hang it up as a sun catcher, your choice.
I really love how easy this clover project is and how it can be used in so many ways. I actually ended up making more clover, and I glued them to a dollar store skewer and placed them in my garden.
Clover must have 3 leaves to be considered a shamrock. So all shamrocks are clover but not all clover is considered a shamrock. Upon more research 3 leaves are considered shamrock, and the 4th leaf is “lucky” and then turns into the 4 leaf lucky clover.

Can I buy a clover?
Oh I love this! When I was younger, (from a kid through my 30’s) 4 leaf clovers were my thing. I could spot one anywhere. I used to keep dried ones in my wallet as a “good luck charm”. LOL Times have changed and I can’t seem to find them anymore. I think I need to make this and hang it in my room. 🙂
Thanks Linda and I’m glad you like it 🙂 I love that you want to put one in your room
This is a clever idea. I like your idea of using it as a trivet. It is a good way to help celebrate St Patrick’s Day.
Thank you Debra 🙂

What a cool idea. Sometimes it takes someone else to show you how shapes can evolve into something new.
Thank you Sheltie 🙂
