If you’re looking for a simple and fun way to decorate your home on St. Patrick’s Day try this DIY windsock craft. This gold pot windsock will for sure bring your home some shine and luck. It’s an easy craft and perfect for all ages. It can also be recreated for all other special holidays and events.
- Colored cardstock or construction paper
- Tissue paper or streamers
- 2-inch hole puncher or circular object to trace
- Glue stick
- Bend a blue piece of construction paper into a cylinder and staple edges together.
- Use a 2-inch hole punch to cut out 12-15 yellow circles. If you don’t have a hole punch, just trace around a small jar or a can of veggies and cut out the shapes. The size does not have to be exact. These will be used to resemble gold.
- Use a glue stick to glue on the yellow circles in a scattered pile in the middle of the blue paper. Make sure to add layers to get more dimension.
- Cut a half circle from black cardstock or construction paper to use as your pot and glue it on the bottom section of your blue cardstock below the pile of gold circles, slightly overlapping the bottom circles.
- Cut six strips of tissue paper about 18 inches long, or use streamers, and glue them around the inside bottom of the winsock. Use different colored tissue paper to make it look like a rainbow.
- Cut a strip of blue paper to use as a handle. It should be about 1 inch wide and about 11 inches long. Attach it with glue inside the top of the windsock.
- Add glitter and stickers and any other decorations as desired, and then hang!
