LUCKY St. Patrick’s Door Hanger

Clovers are often associated with St. Patrick’s Day.  They have a three-leaf, which is a shamrock and a four-leaf, which is a Celtic charm.  It is often believed that when you have them, you will have luck in your life.  Four-leaf clover is very rare that it is only in Ireland that they grow a lot.  That is where the phrase “luck of the Irish” originated.  Today, we will bring the luck in every doorstep by making a LUCKY door hanger that can be displayed during the St. Patrick’s Day celebration to bring luck inside your rooms or houses any time you want. Ready for your lucky door hanger? Let us begin now!

Steps in making Lucky St. Patrick’s Door Hanger:

Step 1:  Form a square from the popsicle sticks.  Make sure that you have an excess on each of the sides.  The horizontal popsicles should be placed on the back, while the vertical ones are on top of it.  Add a middle popsicle stick as a guide later on.

Step 2:  Stick two more popsicle sticks on both sides of the middle stick.  You must form a small fence-looking object.
