Lucky Bridal Bouquet

The leaves of a four-leaf clover are said to stand for hope, faith, love, and luck -- a fitting sentiment for a wedding.
Martha Stewart Weddings, Spring 2005

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. For the clovers:

  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. Cut a clover-leaf shape out of the folded paper; snip cutouts apart for 4 separate leaves.
  3. Twist leaf bases.
  4. Attach stacked leaves to a 9-inch length of green floral wire by wrapping with green floral tape.
  5. Bend leaves to shape.
