St. Patrick’s Day Pot o’ Gold Supplies
You’ll need just a few supplies to make each pot. You can decide what you want to fill it with – so be creative!
- Small DIY Clay Pot
- Green Craft Paint
- Gold Craft Paint
- Felt Shamrock Stickers (in whatever color you would like!)
- Items to Fill each Pot of Gold – I used DIY Gold Coins and rainbow candy straws.
How to Make your Own Pot of Gold Craft for St. Patrick’s Day
Start by painting the bottom of the pot green and let dry.
Paint the rim of the pot gold, using two coats to fully cover. Let dry between coats of paint.
Once the pot is completely dry, add the felt sticker or other decoration to the front of the pot.
Now is your chance to fill the pot of gold. I decided to use these gold coins from my Leprechaun trap that I made with my Cricut maker. They are great for preschoolers – my youngest daughter loves using the coins with her toy cash register or just keeping them in her dress up purse.
For the rainbow, I used sour candy straws. Depending on the size of the clay pot you use, you may have to cut the candy to length. I was able to gather one of each of the colors and just bend them and stick them down the edges of the pot.
At this point, you’re done! You can either leave them as is for display at a party or place them in a small clear favor bag for gifting as a party favor.
