These projects are created by Terri, Betty, Jamie or one of the talented staff members at MakingFriends.com. They have been created exclusively for publication on FreeKidsCrafts.com with supplies you'll be able to find around your house.
We used plastic plates and tablecloth to make a project that can be displayed outside. You can substitute construction paper and crepe paper for an indoor decoration.
Cut strips from the tablecloths to make streamers. Print pattern for pot by clicking on the printables link above. Staple all around the outline to the bottom of black plastic plates. You can probably double it and cut two at a time. Cut circles out of the yellow plastic plate. Trace around a small lid to make it easier. Glue coins in a bunch one of the pot pieces, extending above the top. Glue streamers hanging from the bottom. Glue the second pot piece on top to sandwich the glued streamers between them. Glue on cord for hanging. Punch hearts out of the green plate and glue them to the pot arranging in a shamrock shape.
