Fool's Gold

Want some fake gold this Saint Patrick's day? I've had a HECK of a time finding any gold coins this year!!! So I said, 'forget it' and made some gold nuggets myself! I used tin foil, toothpicks, and gold paint.
Crumble the tin foil up, stick a toothpick in it, and dip it in the gold paint. (I felt like I was dipping truffles!) I set them on wax paper in hopes that they would not stick and not rip off any paint. I WAS RIGHT! Sorry the pictures suck, but honestly they look really great!
Put them in a Halloween cauldron for some Leprechaun gold! (Hopefully my kids won't notice a black outline of fire on said pot! haha)
