So back to my shelf. I thought a Pot O’ Gold would be a cute addition.
(This was not easy to find in the heart of Valentines season. But they pulled one out for me.)
I tried to find just gold coins but they were no where to be found.
Nothing a little spray paint can’t handle.
To start I traced the top of the pot o’ gold onto a piece of paper.
I laid coins on top of the pattern.
The next layer was E6000 and a layer of coins stacked on top and in a little to make a pyramid type look.
I kept layering glue and coins until I reached the top.
For stability I used a grocery sack in the center to keep the coins from caving in until the glue was hard.
Let it dry over night.
Then next morning, Spray them gold.
I filled my pot with empty plastic sacks and sat eh gold on top.
Pot O’ Gold
Would make an adorable center piece on a table for your St. Patricks Day Dinner or a Mantle.
