Leprechaun Pot of Gold
This Leprechaun pot of gold is an important part of the Leprechaun legend. It is said that if you capture a Leprechaun he has to give you his treasure of gold. It is also said that at the end of a rainbow is where this hidden booty can be found.
This pattern is one of my favorite pot of gold crafts. I have made them out of paper, clay, etc, but now to be able to make it out of glass. The pot of gold consists of the black pot, the bounty of gold and a clover as a decoration. Decorate the pot any way you want. Use stringers, frit or some Glassline paint.
