Things You’ll Need:
Empty Oatmeal Container
Small butter container
Step 1 – Cut the empty oatmeal container in half to create two separate cylinder shapes.
Step 2 – Cut a strip of black fabric two inches wider than the height of the container.
Step 3 – Brush a layer of Mod Podge over the containers surface.
Step 4 – Center and place the fabric on the Mod Podge making sure to overlap the seam by 1-inch. Place the container on a small butter dish to dry.
Step 5 – Once dry, cut the fabric that extends past the top and bottom of the container with slits every 1- to 1 ½-inch. Stop cutting at the edge of the container.
Step 6 – Apply a coat of Mod Podge on the upper 2-inches of the inside rim. Press the fabric into place. Apply a second coat of Mod Podge. Allow the Mod Podge to dry completely before continuing.
Step 7 – Turn the container over. Apply a coat of Mod Podge over the bottom of the container. Press the cut fabric into the Mod Podge. Apply a second coat of Mod Podge. Allow the Mod Podge to dry completely before continuing.
Step 8 – Cover the work surface with a sheet of newspaper.
Step 9 – Squeeze a line of white glue on the container that spells Pot-of-Gold. Shake glitter over the glue. Tap the edge of the container to remove excess glitter.
Add a gold rim or other decorations to the Pot-of-Gold with white glue and glitter. Use a black pipe cleaner as the handle.
