Lucky Bridal Bouquet

Introduction

The leaves of a four-leaf clover are said to stand for hope, faith, love, and luck -- a fitting sentiment for a wedding.

Carry a bit of good fortune down the aisle: crepe-paper four-leaf clovers. Ours are interspersed among white sweet peas tied with a silk shantung bow. We glued on an artificial ladybug.

Materials

  • Green crepe paper
  • Scissors
  • Green floral tape
  • Green floral wire

Steps

  1. Step 1

    Cut a 2-by-6-inch rectangle from green crepe paper (we used 2 shades), grain running the long way. Fold into quarters.

  2. Step 2

    Cut a clover-leaf shape out of the folded paper; snip cutouts apart for 4 separate leaves.

  3. Step 3

    Twist leaf bases.

  4. Step 4

    Attach stacked leaves to a 9-inch length of green floral wire by wrapping with green floral tape.

  5. Step 5

    Bend leaves to shape.
