Lucky Clover Specimen Art {Tutorial}




There are so many cool specimen craft projects out there and I’ve always loved the look of them. I finally whipped one up using a few of my new Lifestyle Crafts products. They have an amazing new line of products that they just released. I just love how easy their products are to use to whip up a quick project!


Now that I’ve finished this little project up, I have exactly 2 St. Patrick’s Day decor items. You can see the clover I made last year HERE.


Here’s how I made mine:




I grabbed an old frame that I’ve in my craft closet for, oh let’s just say a loooong time. I threw the glass out. You won’t be needing it.




I covered the cardboard part with white computer paper and glued it on.




I painted the outside of the frame a nice St. Patty’s day green. I then used my Lifestyle Crafts clovers to cut out all of the clovers and then grabbed my Cricut to cut out the lucky letters. I tried to keep the outsides of the clover where I could lift them up a bit.




And now it sits on my mantle, right next to my pink flowers for Valentine’s Day.
