A Sweet Gift of St. Patrick’s Pot of Gold #TigerStrypesBlog 18


St. Patrick’s “Pot of Gold”

With St. Patrick’s Day coming up, I wanted to make a craft that could also be used as a gift!  You see so many different pot of gold things, I just wanted to twist it up a little.  This one was really easy to make and I think the hardest part was finding the “Gold”…finally found it at Walgreens after a long search…about the only thing not from the Dollar Tree!!

I found that the little guy I made on the Cameo was actually for putting on a flat surface, such as a card, etc.  I think in the future, I would just add him to a little note that had a rainbow on it, or something to go with the theme a bit more. 🙂

I hope you like it!! Have a blessed day, and please be sure to comment on, and share this #TBCCrafters craft on your social media channels – thanks!!


St. Patrick’s “Pot of Gold” Craft

Materials/Tools Used:

  • Circular Glass Vase
  • Black Licorice
  • Gold Coin Candy
  • Scrapbook Paper
  • Cameo Cutting Machine
  • Stick
  • Glue, Glue Dots, Etc.
  • & Time!


I started by adding some black licorice to the glass bowl to make the “pot” for St. Patrick.


Next, I added some candy coins to resemble his gold.


Now, I started to create the St. Patrick figure from my Cameo.  If you want to purchase one, go here.


I glued the pieces together the best I could and then used a piece of thin plastic as a backing for the figure!


Next, I inserted little ‘ol Pat into the candy bowl, using a Popsicle stick glued to the back.


Now you can display it wherever you want and let your friends have some candy for the special day!!pot

Hope you like it!  Please take a minute to leave me a comment and let me know what you would do different, or what you would add, etc.  Be sure to tweet, pin, share, etc. – thanks!!

This is so cute! What a great idea! Even with a shamrock tucked on top, too, would make such a lovely gift. Of course, I’m a huge fan of licorice, too, so I want one! Pinning it right now to remember!

So so so so so so cute, I love the little guy. I think I need some more lessons on my machine, because yeah… I don’t think I could make him…
