Saint Patrick’s Day is one of those holidays where you either slather yourself with green and skip around the city, or it just slips through the cracks. To me, it’s a magical holiday. Think about: leprechauns, rainbows, and a pot of gold! It’s what dreams are made of.

This year, I thought it’d be fun to make our own pot of gold bouquet. It’s a cute centerpiece for the table or even a teacher’s gift. This pot of gold craft is so easy to make.



  • Black flowerpot and plant (You could also paint a terra cotta pot black. I just thought it’d be easier to skip that step completely.)
  • 12” and 6” skewers
  • Green washi tape
  • Tape
  • Scissors
  • Card stock
  • Plastic gold coins
  • Rickrack
  • Glitter (I used both green and white.)
  • Glue stick



Step 1: Cut shamrock shapes out of glitter green card stock. Cut larger shamrock shapes out of a darker green card stock. Make sure you cut out one four-leaf clover for good luck. Also, cut out a rainbow/cloud shape out of card stock as well. Cut each color individually and glue together.


Step 2: Use your glue stick to adhere green glitter to the lighter/smaller shamrocks and to your rainbow’s cloud. Let dry.


Step 3: Fold your lighter/smaller/glitter shamrock in half. Then glue it to the larger shamrock.


Step 4: Wrap washi tape around your skewers.


Step 5: Tape your shamrocks, rainbow, and gold coins to the end of your skewers.


Step 6: Wrap rickrack around your black pot and tape it together on the back of the pot.


Step 7: Arrange your shamrocks, rainbow, and gold coins in your plant.
