I don’t know why I get so excited when I have a new printable to share on the blog. I just love holidays – and anytime I can publish something super useful for an upcoming holiday, it makes me happy.
Today I’m focusing on St. Patrick’s Day. I’ve created a few different sets of four leaf clover templates you can print out and use for all sorts of St. Patrick’s Day projects and shamrock themed crafts.
Free Printable Four Leaf Clover Patterns
My sister and I have an ongoing joke. Ever since we were little, I always had the hardest time finding four leaf clovers.
I swear she could walk outside, reach down and instantly have a handful of them. Meanwhile, I have probably found three in my entire life. I just don’t get it!
Seeing as I have little chance of finding an actual four leaf clover today….I hope you like these plentiful four leaf clover patterns as much as I do. 🙂
Large 4-Leaf Clover Shapes to Print & Cut Out
Luckily for me, I figured out how to make my own four leaf clovers and now have access to as many as I’d like!
Here are a few different large and medium four leaf clover templates for all sorts of St. Patrick’s Day projects.
Each page prints to a full sheet of printer paper. I went with a symmetrical clover outlines so they would be easy to cut out.

Small Heart Shaped Four Leaf Clover Stencils
If you have a need for many small sized four leaf clovers for a particular project or activity, then these should do the trick.
This is a set of 9-per-page small heart-shaped four leaf clovers.
This is my new set and it opens on another page but you download them in the same exact way:
Uses for 4-Leaf Clover Templates
We plan on using these shamrock template PDF patterns for a couple different St. Patrick’s Day themed preschool activities in our household.
My four-year-old is busy learning her letters, so first I plan on printing out a handful of the 9-to-a-page four leaf clover sheets and writing upper and lower case letters on them as an ABC flash card game.
Then I was thinking we’d use the 4 leaf clover shapes for one of these activities:
- A super cute shamrock wreath like this one from The Soccer Mom Blog
- Use the super large template above for a glue art tracing project
- Cute lunch box notes on or around St. Patrick’s Day
- Printed out in several different shades of cardstock, these four leaf clovers could become a “What comes next” pattern activity, as in 2 blue shapes, 1 red shape, 2 blue shapes, then what?
- Print out the large four leaf clover pattern, tape it down to the floor or driveway, and play a hopping game. Could be hopscotch or anything fun like “jump on every other one” or “don’t let your foot touch the lava outside off the shape.” My kids love doing this!
What other uses can you think of for these stencils?
