Let's play a game. It is believed that when you find a four leaf clover you'll find luck. So, I just thought of making a shamrock hat - a fancy green hat filled with these teeny weeny clover leaves. For a St. Patrick's day celebration find your lucky clover in it.


  • art paper colored green, yellow and black
  • 2 shades of green art paper cut into 1x1 inch squares
  • glue
  • bottle cap
  • marker/pen/pencil
  • scissors


  1. To make a clover leaf, take 1 square of green paper and fold diagonally. It will become a triangle.

  3. Fold again to form a smaller triangle.
  4. Cut a tiny heart shape out of it.
  5. Open the folds after cutting and it should look like this.
  6. Make more of these, as many as you can.
  7. Remove 1 leaf on most of the clovers, but leave some untouched. This will be the lucky clover leaves. You can write "lucky" at the back to make it more fun.

  9. Cut thin strips out of some of the 1x1 green paper.
  10. Now, glue each strip onto each piece of clover. Set aside.
  11. Let's make the basket. Cover the cap neatly with green art paper.
  12. Cut a strip of black paper about 3 inches long and a tiny rectangle of yellow paper for the belt. Cut small slots and slide the buckle onto the belt.

  14. Wrap it around the body of the cap and glue in place.
  15. Then draw two circles, one is smaller and inside the big one.
  16. Cut out the pattern. Inside the small circle, cut it like a pizza. Pull the triangles up.
  17. Insert this into the opening of the cap and secure with glue.

  19. Now, you have the hat. Cover the inside with tiny clipping and pour in a small amount of white or hot glue.
  20. Cut another black strip for the handle and glue into place.
  21. Start planting the clover inside the hat. Arrange well and start looking for the lucky 4 leaf clovers.
