I have a special fondness for St. Patrick's Day. It might be because I have quite a bit of Irish blood running through my veins or the fact that it's the closest holiday to my birthday, but I just think it's such a fun holiday.
I didn't get to do a lot for the holiday last year since we had just moved, although I did make some pretty stylin' St. Patty's day t-shirts for Amazing Boyfriend and myself.
This year I decided I wanted to do something fun for my nieces.
Last year I found these adorable leprechaun hat treat containers that Jeromina from Paper, Plate & Planes created. Such a clever idea!
So I picked up some small plastic containers from the dollar store.
I painted the outside lip of the container and the outside rim of the lid with a small paintbrush. Then I used a sponge brush to paint the rest of the container. I did two coats on each.
When they were dry, I cut enough black ribbon to go around each container. I used glue adhesive to stick the ribbon around the container.
When I had my ribbon glued on, I used mod podge to glue on the "buckles" that I had cut out of cardstock.
Then I added shamrocks.
Finally I filled it up with leprechaun gold!
I think my nieces are going to love them!
Happy St. Patrick's Day!
