Pot of Gold

posted in: How To - DIY

Maybe it's the fact that winter decided to come back for round two in our part of the country, but for this St. Patrick's Day all I want is a little spring green in my house! Luckily, I kept seeing these little shamrock plants when I was at the grocery store:

I also picked up some hydrangeas, and to make them even more festive, I decided to give the pot and vase a little upgrade. I taped off the part of the container that I wanted to keep as it was, and used some gold acrylic paint to gild the rest! It took two coats to make it opaque, and in less than a nap time (isn't that how everyone measures their time?), I had my new "pots of gold." 

 I especially love that, while festive for St. Patrick's Day, there's no reason not to use these year-round!
