I wish I could say I came up with this idea on my own, however, I have to credit my 10-year-old daughter Emma. As we were discussing ideas for the DIY craft for March my creative sidekick came up with making a pot of gold. What 10-year-old or 41-year-old wouldn’t love to find a REAL pot of gold! But, until we find leprechauns at the end of the rainbow with a huge stash of gold we will have to settle with a homemade pot of gold.
This do-it-yourself craft can be done quickly and can be used as a centerpiece at your St. Paddy’s Day party or for a decoration for the holiday.
So, for St. Patrick’s Day I wish you the very best of luck of finding or creating a pot of gold.
Large Styrofoam ball
Green sparkle spray paint
Gold spray paint
Gold coins (you can also use poker chips and spray paint them gold)
2 kabob sticks
Step 1- Spray paint Styrofoam ball and kabob sticks with gold spray paint (5 min)
Step 2- Spray paint flower pot with green sparkle spray paint (be sure to do light layers to avoid paint from dripping) (10 min)
Step 3- Place Styrofoam ball in pot and glue gold coins to the gold Styrofoam ball (layer the coins for full effect) (15 min)
Step 4- Trim kabob sticks and poke in Styrofoam ball between glued coins. Glue two or three coins to each stick (3 min)
Step 5- Tie gold ribbon to the rim of the green flower pot and tie a bow (you may want to glue it in a couple places to secure) (2 min)
