{DIY} Pot of Gold

I'm all about making holidays extra fun for my kiddos. I enjoy giving them something special and with St. Patrick's Day right around the corner, I started thinking of what their something special would be this year.

While I was walking the isles at the dollar store I saw these tiny clay pots that came 3 in pack (perfect!) so the idea came to make them each their own little pot of gold.  I plan on setting these out for them Friday morning.

These were so simple to make, which was good because I did it last week while I was still recovering and a nice easy craft was just what I needed. Anything more complicated than this and I probably wouldn't have had the energy.

Here's what you need:

  • Small clay pot (as I said, I found 3 mini ones at my dollar store. They are probably 3")
  • Black paint
  • Gold glitter
  • Gold chocolate coins (or whatever candy you want to fill it with)

I just painted the entire pot black, let it dry, then used glue around the edge and poured the glitter over. SO EASY! I filled each one with some chocolate coins and done!! I can't wait to see their little faces when they see these Friday.

Do you do anything "extra" for your kids during St. Patrick's Day? 


  1. Absolutely adorable! I miss making stuff like this with my kids. I still make each holiday festive but they no longer want to do crafts mom, LOL. I love this!

    1. Oh gosh I am dreading that day!! :( I guess we'll just have to find other things to do together :)

  2. This is so so cute! Andi would love this little craft!

  3. This couldn't possibly be any cuter. Love it!

  4. Another great craft by Lizzie... your kids have to be the craftiest kids on the block! You always come up with the cutest ideas!

  5. What a cute craft. We aren't doing anything for St. Patrick's Day since we are traveling, but I will pin this for next year!

  6. Oh my GOODNESS, I love this idea! Thanks so much for sharing. I may have to wait for next year to try it with my kids, but I bet they will love it. :)

  7. How much fun is this?! Who wouldn't love a pot of gold –especially one you can eat :) Beautifully Candid

  8. I LOVE this! SO cute! I wish I had time to make this before tomorrow.
