Guest Post: Trish from Mom on Timeout created another fun craft to share with us….

When I think of St. Patrick’s Day I immediately think of rainbow and pots of gold.  This craft is fun to put together and looks great too!

Materials Needed:
terra cotta pot
black and green paint
gold chocolate coins
colored popsicle sticks (or paint regular ones)
floral foam
cotton balls
card stock or small paper plate


1. Paint the pot black.

2. Push the foam down into the pot. Stick the popsicle sticks in at an angle so it looks like the rainbow is ending in the pot. Make sure there is enough foam in the pot for the gold coins.

3. Fill with gold coins.

4. Cut out a cloud shape from card stock or paper plate.

5. Glue cotton balls to make the cloud. I pulled the cotton balls apart to get the cloud nice and fluffy.

6. Glue the cloud onto the popsicle sticks. You can add more cotton balls on the back if you like.

I finished off the pot by painting a shamrock onto the front and adding a ribbon.
