Lucky little four leaf clover bags make an adorable accessory for any event that needs a little extra green. Whether they are filled with delicious gold coins as St. Patrick’s Day favors or as prizes at the end of a treasure hunt, these cute bags are a must have for this year’s celebration.
You will need: 3×4 inch muslin bags, freezer paper, clover craft punch, acrylic craft paint (most supplies can be found at craft stores, like Michael’s Craft)
Directions: Punch a clover out of a piece of freezer paper. With a clothes iron, iron the freezer paper square, wax side down, onto your muslin bag. Place a scrap piece of paper inside your muslin bag to prevent the paint from soaking onto the back. Paint over the clover punch. Peel off the freezer paper and allow your bag to dry.
You can make as many clover prints on your bag as you want, just repeat the instructions above and allow the paint to dry in between each clover. This same idea can be repeated on a bigger tote, shirt, scarf or basically anything you might want to wear on St. Patrick’s Day!
