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:

Materials:
a pot
florist foam
florist wire
wire cutters
foam shamrocks
glue gun
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.


Poke the stems of the shamrocks through the holes of the cardboard (if you're using it) and into the florist foam.  Top with candy.  Add a ribbon and one of these printable gift tags.  And you're done!
