Wine Cork Clover

Four leaf clover made from corks.


I had made cork hearts for Valentine's Day for my little craft boutique. As I was pondering ideas for St Patrick's Day decor and crafts I noticed I could create a four leaf clover from 4 hearts . Well, then it was off to the races.


Here is one of the hearts and you can see that I used 12 corks to create the heart. It's easy to use a hot glue gun to build the heart.I created 4 hearts to make the clover.

Start from the bottom of the heart with one cork , glue the two corks above that to the first cork , then glue the third row of corks but center the middle cork and glue that first,  then the two side pieces. These are easy just require a couple of extra seconds of thought. Just keep going and following the picture above.

Create a total of 4 hearts .
Hot glue the 4 hearts together in the center to form the Four Leaf Clover .


I'm a big fan of driftwood and it's always laying around somewhere as part of the decor so it was easy enough for me to make a stem from the driftwood. You could make a stem from twigs, or even something from the faux floral department .






Side view and showing that I used holiday napkins from the dollar store to decoupage to one side to create a little color and festivity. Make sure you let that dry well before attempting to cut around the corks to remove the excess napkin.


A little Mod Podge and gold glitter to finish off the other side. 
Hot glue some twine to create a loop for hanging. Completa.

Cheers, now you have a reason to save those corks.



With love and gratitude
