Celebrate St. Patrick’s Day with Plants and a Rainbow

A St. Patrick’s Day planter full of lush greens, a pot of gold and a rainbow to celebrate! This adorable planter will live long after the holiday, and the lucky clover plant, fern and ivy will keep your home green! 

We started out by painting our mini-terra cotta plant pot, to create a traditional look for the pot of gold. Then we added soil to our chosen planter. Tucking in the plants snuggly. A covering of white pebbles is interrupted by a river of gold, which leads right up to the pot! Giant nuggets hide amid the leaves, left by the leprechauns. Our rainbow is a set of six pipe-cleaners that we attach together at the bottom and anchor onto a wooden stake. Carefully pushing either end into the dirt keeps our colourful rainbow up in the air. And of course, can’t forget to fill up our pot with gold!! 

Your turn, create a magical scene for the holiday!
