How to make St. Patrick's Day coasters

Add some luck of the Irish to your home with four-leaf clover coasters. They are easy and affordable to make, and are perfect additions to a St. Patrick's Day celebration. If you don't want to use this project as a coaster, drill a small hole in one of the heart's lobes prior to painting it. Tie green or gold ribbon to the hole and hang the clover on a removable hook.
To use the clover as a coaster, seal the face with a waterproof sealant so any condensation or spilled liquid does not damage the wood. Oil-based sealants tend to require fewer coats, but water-based sealant is less toxic.

Instructions
1. Pour green paint into a bowl. Paint the four hearts green on one side. Let the paint dry.
2. Run glue along the outside edge of a heart where the bottom "V" comes to a point. Press a second heart to the first, aligning one edge of the "V." Continue gluing and attaching the four heart at their points. They should fit snugly.
