Pot of Gold Craft
I wanted to make something to give away that represented the upcoming holiday, but was easy enough for kids to help.
Green is the focal point and everyone wants gold but in this case chocolate will have to do. Does that about sum up St. Patrick's Day?
I picked up the pot at Walmart for under $1.00
Pipe cleaner I had on hand would have rather had gold but silver had to do.
Purchased a spool of black ribbon under $2.00 also at Walmart.
Paint was 2 for $1.00 also at Walmart, so I grabbed a couple colors and one was the green.
Hot glue to hold everything together I had on hand!
No plans for these pots to go outside so I just painted them first.
Figure out your ribbon placement and cut it appropriately and secure it with hot glue.
I had to decided based on the size of my ribbon how big I wanted the buckle. Which was 2 pieces bent into "L" shapes and one piece for the middle. I then glued it in the middle with the hot glue gun.
Lastly, I had to add gold to my pot. This officially completes the pot! I'm considering to give packets of seeds away on Earth Day.
Happy St. Patrick's Day everyone!
