St. Patrick's Day Pot o' Gold

Hi there friends,
Today I have a "For the Teacher" project many of you like to see. This is something I created for my son's teacher for St. Patty's day.
Here it is:

It is VERY simple to do. I used a 3" clay pot you can find at any craft store. Paint it with black acrylic paint & let it dry.

Then add the Ferrero Rocher chocolates & embellish as you wish. I just wrapped ribbon around it & adhered a shamrock on it. Super simple, right? But way cute.

Here's another version if you want to make more economically:
You can use a black party cup instead of a clay pot & fill it with Ferrero Rocher Chocolates. Tip: I stuff the bottom of the cup with cellophane paper so that there's actually only a few chocolates on the top. (I know, i'm evil ;) Embellish as you'd like. Mine is very basic because this was just to show you. The shamrock border is actually the MS hydrangea border punch. Don't they look like little 4 leaf clovers???

Another version:
Fill with chocolate gold coins. Unfortunately, these aren't chocolate coins :( (my wonderful- not!) children ate the ones I bought (grrrrr!)

Thanks for peeking today! Hope you're ready for St. Patty's Day :)
Gotta Go!
