St. Patrick’s Day is a fun low-key holiday. When I was growing up, St. Patrick’s Day was not a big deal at all (of course, may that’s because I grew up in Hawai’i where there’s not a large Irish population). But as a mom to three kids, I enjoy coming up with easy St. Patrick’s Day Candy crafts and gifts. This St. Patrick’s Day treat can be made in minutes, is both a frugal and earth friendly project and it’s perfect for gift giving or as party favors.
I pulled these little glass jars from my stash of recycled glass jars, but you could easily purchase Mason jars if you don’t have your own stash of recycled jars.
St. Patrick’s Day Candy Treat
Supplies (may contain affiliate links)
Small Glass Jars
Black and Gold or Silver Craft Vinyl – You can use paper and decoupage glue if you don’t have craft vinyl
Green-colored Candy – I stock up on candy at the after Christmas sales to save money
Simply cut a strip of black craft vinyl to make a belt. Cut a square of gold or silver craft vinyl for the belt buckle and add a smaller black square in the middle of the buckle. Fill your decorated jar with your favorite green-colored candy. Voila! In less than three minutes and for just pennies, you have an easy St. Patrick’s Day Candy treat.
These decorated gift jars make a great little gift for someone special on St. Patty’s Day. They’re also perfect as party favors for your St. Patrick’s day bash. For a children’s St. Patrick’s Day party, you could use plastic jars in place of the glass ones for safety.
Do you celebrate St. Patrick’s Day in a big way, a little way or not at all? Thanks to this easy and frugal St. Patrick’s Day Candy treat, you can celebrate this year along with my family.
