St. Patrick's Day Treat Jar

It's always fun to have special treats for the holidays. My son and I decided to make a special treat jar for St. Patrick's Day. This was a really simple project.

You'll need:
  • Empty Jar with lid... any size

  • Green Paint

  • Paint Brush

  • Craft Glue

  • Green Decorations

  • Green Treats

1. Take the lid off of the jar and paint it green. You might need a few coats if it has designs or is a dark color.

2. While the lid was drying we decorated the jar. I didn't plan ahead and didn't have stickers or anything, so I got on the computer and printed some shamrock clip art onto vellum. We cut it out and used craft glue to stick them on. You can use anything you want: ribbon, stickers, rickrack... get creative!

3. Fill with your favorite green treats!

Pretty simple. You could also use baby food jars and give them as a little gift to friends!


  1. I'm glad Amy is having you contritute her blog. You both are very creative with your children.

  2. This treat jar looks like the perfect thing to find at the end of the rainbow.
