St. Patrick’s Day Treat ~ Leprechaun Loot Pail + Printable

Saint Patrick's Day Treat ~ Leprechaun Loot Pail By: NotSoIdleHands.com

With 3 girlies around, St. Patty’s Day has become kind of a big deal here…..What, with all the rainbow and pot o’ gold themed stuff out there, and little people with magic and allllll the green tinted food! It’s no wonder my girls have warmed up to this fun holiday pretty quickly.

I added these cute clear paint cans to my Etsy store recently, and wanted to play with some fun ways to dress them up….and St. Patty’s Day is a great excuse!

It was super easy to make. You just need a paint can of your own, a bag of {yummy} Rolo candy, and this free printable:

Punch {or cut} out the circles….they are 3 inches diameter. And add the candy.

I made the label so it can fit the lid or be tied around the side.

My kiddos liked it immediately and desperately wanted to know who I made it for {and if there were more so they could all have one}.

The pail 4″ x 4″ and is so fun and you can get it in my Etsy shop. I also have a different size, if you prefer a smaller one.

Do you do anything special for St. Patrick’s Day? Do you make green food?

Have fun!

  1. What an adorable idea! And who wouldn’t love a bucket full of Rolos? Now I just have to figure out who to make these for!

  2. We LOVE green food…green eggs! I love this pail idea also! Every year, my kids try to catch a leprechaun…this might be the way they do it. ;-)
