Welcome to the Thankful Thursday St. Patty's Blog Hop!
We are so happy to have you hopping along with us today!
You should have come from Lola @purplepeepstechniques. If you didn't, please start at the beginning of the hop at Jenny's blog at CrazyAboutCricut.
Today I am sharing some St. Patty's Day "finding gold at the end of the rainbow" crafts.
My two boys wanted slightly different styles of crafts. These are the two pots of gold we created. For both we picked up the supplies at Dollar Tree. The pots (3 / $1) were painted black, colored pipe cleaners, and the little shamrock necklaces (2 / $1). The candy was extra! :)
Owen made this pot of gold. He attached his rainbow (with my help with the hot glue) as a handle on his pot.
We cut the necklaces to fit and hot glued them around the rim of the pot, then we glued the rainbow ends to the inside of the pot.
The only thing left to do was fill our pot with gold!! Owen chose Hershey Nuggets (he'll have to share with his class). That's the yummiest gold we've ever seen!
Here you can see the pipe cleaners we created out rainbows with. We just put the colors all in a line, and added hot glue to each end and a little stripe in the center to hold them together at the top of the arch.
This is Bryce's version of the pot of gold. He is positive that the gold is at the end of the rainbow... not under it... so he attached just one end of his rainbow to the inside of his pot. We created the cloud by crumpling up some paper and gluing cotton ball "clouds" to the other end of the rainbow.
Can't you see by his face how much he loves his creation? :)
Again we added the shamrock necklace to the rim of the pot with some hot glue. Bryce has caramel Hershey Kisses for his gold, but any candy with a gold wrapper will make perfect "gold".
