Lucky Clover Wood Magnet Craft

It’s that time again.. time to decorate for a holiday. Because it’s just fun, right? Of all the decorating holidays, though, I think I have the least amount of stuff for St. Patrick’s Day! Last year we made this Leprechaun Trap, which surprisingly is still intact this year! We’ve made fun kids crafts like this clover resist finger painting or this pom pom painted clover but I wanted something that wasn’t made out of paper. We love doing paper crafts, they are quick and fun for my daughter, but I wanted something different this time. So we created this Lucky Clover Wood Magnet.

St. Patrick’s Day Craft: Clover Magnet

This was still easy and a very kid friendly craft. I just doesn’t look like it. It’s a beautiful painted wood with an added ribbon for embellishment. We decided to make it into a magnet to add some St. Patrick’s flair to our kitchen. Besides a dish towel or two there isn’t much room for any other decorations, so the fridge is a must!

Supplies We Used

(3) Wooden Hearts
Green Paint 
Hot Glue & Gun
Green Ribbon
Vinyl Magnet

How We Made It

The first thing I did was hot glue the hearts together to make them look like the leaves of a clover. These particular wood hearts didn’t fit perfectly together but I like the raised look!

Glue Wood Hearts Together

The second step was to let my daughter paint it green. We used her kids washable paint, but acrylic paint would be great too (watch it, acrylic paint will stain fabric!).

Paint Wood

I only used one coat of paint so the paint didn’t take very long to dry, maybe 15 minutes.

I tied a bow from the green ribbon and glued it onto the base of the ‘clover’.

Then I hot glued a vinyl magnet to the back and viola.

Add Magent

How easy, right? But still super kid friendly. My daughter has been crafting with me long enough that she uses the hot glue gun, but please be careful and warn children of it’s hot temperatures!

We now have a fabulously cute Lucky Clover Wood Magnet that will last for years to come and be a perfect St. Patrick’s Day decoration.
