St. Patrick’s Day Button Clover Art Tutorial
Cut out 3 pieces of paper 4″ x 4″, fold in half, and cut out a heart on the folded line, making sure to cut from edge to edge so that your hearts is about 4″x4″
Arrange your hearts onto your canvas so that they make a clover, trace the outside edges, and hand draw the bottom stem of the clover
Start carefully gluing your largest green buttons onto the clover, do not go outside your pencil line.
Then start filling in your smaller areas with your smaller buttons and begin layering
them on top of your large buttons to make sure there are no open spaces.
Now carefully fill in your empty spaces and outlines with your hot glue a little at a time and top with your tiny beads.
Let your clover dry completely, shake off any excess beads and display
