DIY Four Leaf Clover Balloons

Hello everyone!
I don't know about you, but when it comes to holidays, St. Patrick's Day is a hard one for us to figure out.
Erik and I don't drink and we don't have kids to catch leprechauns with so, when it comes to the big day we usually don't have much planned. 
We have landed on eating a themed meal and festive decorations.
Today I wanted to show you a quick and easy decoration that we like to put up.
Four leaf clover balloons!

You will need:
Green Heart Shaped Balloons, Four Per Clover
A Pump, Optional
Gold Ribbon, Optional

Blow up your balloons. 
I didn't want to use helium as I wanted them to stick to a wall. 
If you want to use them as one big balloon feel free to use helium.
I used an air pump.
Once all of your balloons are blown up, arrange four of them into the shape of a four leaf clover, placing the points of the heart next to each other.

For our balloons I used metallic mylar heart shaped balloons.
I liked that they weren't see through and provided a deep clover green.
Because I used mylar balloons they didn't have the usual lip that latex balloons have.
If you use latex balloons you can easily tie the four balloons together with the lips.
Since my balloons didn't have lips I taped them to the wall individually.
Apply a few pieces of rolled tape to the back of the balloons and stick them to the wall.
Continue till you have placed all four balloons into the shape of a four leaf clover.
If you use latex and have tied them together apply a few pieces of rolled tape to the back of each balloon and put them all up at the same time. 
I felt that putting the balloons on an angle made the clovers look more realistic.

The clovers are adorable on there own but, I felt ours needed a little something more.
And you know I can't get enough gold... 
I took a few pieces of gold curl ribbon and hung them from the center of the balloon to create the look of a stem.
I think it was the perfect St. Patricks Day touch!

These clovers are so quick and easy to create, but add a dramatic affect with their 3D look.
And if you use mylar balloons like we did, treat them carefully and they are reusable!
How do you decorate for St. Patrick's Day?

All my love,
