Easy St. Patrick's Day Craft: DIY Stamped Clover T-Shirts

Protect your little leprechaun from would-be pinchers with this adorable eraser-stamped four leaf clover t-shirt.

St. Patrick’s Day is next week and I have to admit: I don’t really get into it. Sure, green is one of my favorite colors and I dream of visiting Ireland one day, but green beer and crowds? No thank you. However, there is one person in my house who LOVES St. Patrick’s Day: my daughter Lulu. She loves hunting for leprechauns and wouldn’t dream of being caught in anything but green on the big day.

So, to protect her from any would-be pinchers out there, I’m making this eraser-stamped four leaf clover t-shirt. Adorable, right?

All you need to create this project? Some paint, a T-shirt, some waxed paper and pencil with a fresh eraser. (I may have “borrowed” one of Lulu’s pony models.) Watch the video to see how I made this cute St. Patrick’s Day DIY.

Once you’ve got this technique down, it would work equally well on dishtowels or a tote bag, or for different holidays and designs.
