Happy Monday friends. Is anyone else really dragging from the time change? I really wish the whole country was like Arizona and gave it up- i hate re-adjusting my kids. St.Patricks day is a week away and i have a few cute little crafts for you today. This do it yourself gold shamrock flower pot is so cute and so easy. I also made some fun bows with painted gold shamrocks, who doesn't love a bow?! Enjoy your Monday, it looks like its going to be gorgeous weather finally and so i think we are headed outside! wooo hooo!
To make the flower pot I just purchased a mini flower pot from JoAnn for 89 cents and using my silhouette cameo i cut out a vinyl stencil of a shamrock. I bought THESE shamrock shapes in the silhouette store to use for the stencil. I used Martha Stewart's craft paint in the metallic gold and with a brush did a few light coats of paint, letting them dry in between. Once it was dry i pulled the stencil off and it was done. Seriously fast and easy.
I was making these green bows at the same time i was making the flower pot and thought, why not paint on a few shamrocks? Thats what i love about the martha stewart craft paint- you can paint so many different surfaces with it, i get mine at Michael's.
