Pot of Gold Pretzels
These Pot of Gold Pretzels are the perfect craft for novice crafters and kids alike. With this St. Patrick’s Day craft, you’ll be making your own “pot of gold” at the end of the rainbow, and eating it, too! On top of being super easy, this St. Patrick’s Day craft doesn’t require a lot of ingredients, either: just waffle style pretzels, Rolo candies, rainbow sour candy belts, and gold sugar crystals. They’re simple enough for any level crafter, and cute and tasty, too.
Find the full instructions over at Crayons and Cravings, and be sure to head to Candy Club to stock up on those sour candy belts! (Trust us, they’ll go fast!)
Tasty Money Tree
We’ve all probably heard the phrase, “money doesn’t grow on trees.” But just for one day, wouldn’t it be really cool if it did? Well, make your dreams come true with this St. Patrick’s Day craft idea from our friends at Edible Crafts Online. Of course, they’re chocolate coins (not real ones), but it’s still pretty fun to pick a treat off of your very own money tree. No need to find the pot of gold at the end of the rainbow this St. Patrick’s Day when you’re growing gold coins on your money tree.
Pot O’ Treats
What if the real treasure at the end of the rainbow was candy and other tasty treats? Gold and money would be nice, too, but unless you really are a magical Leprechaun with a pot of gold, some tasty treats are a pretty good alternative. On top of being absolutely delicious, this treat can double as a gift for pretty much anyone. All you need are your favorite green-colored candies and snacks, a black plastic cauldron from a party supply store, yellow tissue paper, and green curling ribbon. Combine then all, and you have a St. Patrick’s Day craft that you can eat!
This is an especially fun craft idea for the smaller kids, and it’s super easy (and affordable!) to put together. All you need are some Skittles, M&M’s, or other rainbow-colored candy, and a zip lock baggy. Put the candy in the bag, and bam! You have seeds to “plant a rainbow” with. And who knows? You might just catch a Leprechaun or find a pot of gold when your rainbow grows from your seeds.
