You know me and FREE things! I love to get FREE things and I LOVE to give them even more!! That’s why I am offering Free St. Patrick’s Day Printables for you to enjoy. Let’s just say that today is your Lucky Day (pun intended, hahaha)! I’ve noticed a lack of cute St. Patrick’s Day printables out there! Almost everything is your typical green and white. I really wanted to incorporate a rainbow print and a lot of fun elements.
First, I wanted to use full size rollo packs, which I got at Target for $0.79 each. (I also called my local Cash and Carry and they sell boxes of 36 for $22, which would make a great gift for your child’s entire class). Several ideas I saw incorporated the “loose” rollos, but I thought it would be fun to create a wrap. I simply unwrapped the old one, grabbed my cute “Pot of Gold at the end of the Rainbow” wrap and used double-sided tape to secure it! Super simple, but super cute!
Second, I created bags of “Rainbows and pots of gold” . I took pretzel bags from Jo Ann’s Craft Store , a bag of Rollos, and two different bags of Skittles Candy (I used a bag of original Skittles and Riddle Skittles). I added a few Rollos to the bottom and then started backwards with the rainbow starting with purple. My rainbow included two shades of green and pink too! I know pink isn’t “technically” a part of the rainbow, but I added it anyways because I LOVE pink! You can also do this with M&Ms too.
Okay, so this next project was a HIUGE undertaking. Have you seen the oh-so-adorable Lucky Rainbow Jello by Glorious Treats? I just thought these were so cute and I had to make my own! WARNING: THIS TOOK ME FOREVER. Probably because this was my first time making these, I didn’t follow instructions and use the “small” boxes of Jello, and I was trying to do all of these crafts at once. I also used smaller glasses (I used my double shot glasses that are so fun to make mini desserts in). I must say, these did turn out super cute and we’ve been enjoying eating them!
The last project didn’t exactly turn out how I had planned. My inspiration was this “Pot of Gold Rainbow“. I wanted to add a fold over bag label to mine, but let’s just say I had some sizing issues. I didn’t buy the right size bags, so I had to deviate from my original plan. Pretend that the bag toppers are the right size, please! I ended up buying regular Twizzlers and Rainbow Twizzlers. I was originally going to replace the pink one with the red original Twizzlers, but just ended up adding the pink in. Since my bags were too short, I added either rollos or chocolate gold coins to the bottom of the bag, cut the Twizzlers in half and stuck them in the bags following the colors of the rainbow, with my pink addition! Even though my toppers were not the correct size, they still turned out cute.
***PSA: I must add a disclaimer about this project! I am a total licorice snob! I love Red Vine licorice, Grape, Apple, and Black! I love Red Vines and just about any Australian Licorice. The Twizzlers on the other hand tasted like plastic. It wasn’t good at all. I even had the boys try the rainbow licorice and we all agreed that it was disgusting. So, these are cute, but not very tasty!***
Lastly, no party is complete without party circles/cupcake toppers or mini water bottle labels. These are my all time favorite mini waters from Trader Joes. I just can’t get enough of them. These would be perfect to throw into your little one’s lunch box too! For the party circles/cupcake toppers, I used them on several of my projects. I used them as cupcake toppers, on the milk bottle (also from Target along with the white bowl and cute little cow), and on the “Lucky Rainbow Jello.”
Happy St. Patrick’s Day! May the LUCK of the IRISH be with you all!!!
