Materials to create a rainbow pot of gold Creatively Beth #creativelybeth #rainbow #potofgold #dollartree #stpatricksdaycrafts

Remove the handle from the plastic pot (they just pop out).  Select seven rainbow colors of chenille stems.

Starting in the middle with the yellow chenille stem, attach each color to the top flat edge of the plastic pot with the glue gun and glue sticks.  Use the seam on the side of the pot as a guide.

Once the glue is cooled and set, carefully bend each chenille stem and attach it to the opposite side of the plastic pot.

Write the recipient’s name in green marker on the mini price tag.  Thread tag onto the baker’s twine and tie around the top of the pot.  Tie in a knot or a bow and trim ends, if necessary.
