Pot O' Gold

Have a pot of gold at the end of your rainbow all year round!

Store your favorite art tools or desk essentials in what we're calling our Pot O' Gold! Whether it's your paint brushes, pens, or favorite markers, your treasures deserve a fancy jar to call home.

Create your own! Here's what you'll need:

  • Metallic Gold Spray Paint
  • Wide Mouth Glass Jar
  • String or Twine (optional)
a can of metallic gold spray paint next to a clear simple glass jar


Prep your jar for the spray paint by taking off the lid and flipping the jar upside down. While you're painting, follow the instructions on the can and be sure to evenly coat the rim!
