This DIY Pot of Gold is the perfect craft for St. Patrick’s Day! I used chalkboard paint to make the pot look just like a pot AND you can write anything you want on it too! You can make some for your friends and family and write their names on the pot. You can also just make one to decorate your room and write “Happy St. Patty’s Day” on it! This is a really quick and easy craft for any age. The only long part is waiting for the chalkboard paint to dry. The paint I used takes about an hour to dry. 🙁
You will need:
- a round pot looking jar
- I found my in Target’s Dollar Spot. I really liked it because it has a handle. You can also find a round glass jar like the one I used in the snow candle holders at Dollar Tree and glue a handle to it as well.
- I also got this from Target”s craft section
- paint brush
- gold chocolate coins
- or anything you’d like to put in your pot
- optional, use it to write your message on the pot of gold
This is a really easy and quick craft. Just use your chalkboard paint and paint your pot according to the directions. My pot only needed one coat and I left it to dry for about 2 hours. Depending on what paint you buy, you might have to do a 2nd coat.
When it’s dry, you can decorate and fill your pot with anything you’d like!
That’s it! Told you it was really simple! Doesn’t it look so cute though?
