In Irish folklore, leprechauns like to hide their pot of gold somewhere, sometimes at the end of a rainbow. It's no easy task to catch a leprechaun and you may not want to as they are very mischievous and like to play practical jokes. Lucky for you, you don't have to catch a leprechaun or find the end of a rainbow to enjoy this pot of gold! This quick project can be made in minutes and it makes a great gift for a friend, a teacher, or just about anyone you'd like to wish a happy St. Patrick's Day to. Here's what you'll need:
any gold wrapped candy (I used Rolos)
Use wire cutters to cut the florist wire into three inch long pieces. Then use a glue gun to glue the florist wire to the back of the shamrocks. These will be the stems.
Place a piece of florist foam in the pot to fit snugly. Go ahead and trim some of the foam if needed to make it fit. I also placed a piece of cardboard on top of the foam. This it totally optional. I just did it to keep the candy from falling down into the spaces between the pot and foam.
Happy St. Patrick's Day!
