Clover Mantel Decoration

Add a touch of Irish-theme decor to your mantel with an easy-to-make framed clover. Trace a clover shape onto a 1-inch thick piece of plastic foam; cut out. Cover the shape completely with crinkled tissue paper to add texture. Spray-paint the clover green, let dry, and apply an antique glaze to highlight the textured areas. Secure it to a framed piece of burlap with a bit of hot glue.

Yea it's pretty kool and I like that it's made from tissue paper, completely fooled me. Usually I can look at a craft and kinda sorta figure out how it's done and what materials are needed but not this one :)))

Hey that would make a good contest, guess the best you can how to make this craft and what materials are needed :)))

That's a good word to describe it "elegant" - I thought so too!
