Seed Bead Four Leaf Clover

Seed Bead Four Leaf Clover

DSCN2353-1

For this week’s craft I wanted to get into the St. Patrick’s Day spirit.  This project is incredibly easy, low cost and I think very cute, but not cheesy.

Supplies:
I bought one sheet of scrapbook paper in a green damask pattern, on sale for 50 cents.  The seed beads were $2.99 for a small container in a coordinating green.  I used tacky glue which I already had on hand.  I also used a 5 x 7 frame that I had.  Total out of pocket cost was $3.49.

How To:
First I cut out the scrapbook paper to the 5 x 7 size.  I downloaded a picture of a four leaf clover I liked from a Google image shirt.  I traced it with a pencil onto the scrapbook paper.

Trace the outline of the four leaf clover in glue.  Then using a paintbrush pull the glue into the center and evenly coat the template in glue.

Cover the glued template in the seed beads.

Finished! First I had it in the black frame and I liked it.

Then I remembered this green frame that I had bought a few weeks ago on rock bottom clearance from Target.  It cost me a mere $1.48!

Even better!
