St. Pat's Gift Idea {Freebie}

This weekend, I stumbled upon "candy kettles," aka teeny pots, at Party City.  Immediately I had a vision!  Gifts for my students!  And so this was born:
And then a photo shoot happened:
On my reversible yoga mat:
I have about 10 more pictures but I'll spare you :)

To make this super adorable gift, you will need:
*candy kettles {from Party City, $3 for 12}
*pretzel bags {found in the candy making aisle of the craft store}
*my freebie gift tag

Just fill up the pretzel bags with Skittles and add three Rolos at the top.  Punch a hole in the gift tag, loop ribbon through, and tie the bags.  Then push the candy-filled bag into the kettle {if you use the pretzel bags, they will fit perfectly}.  Voila!  A cute gift for your little leprechauns!

And if you don't feel like spending the extra $ on the candy kettles, or making the trip to Party City:
For these kettle-less gifts I put five Rolos in the pretzel bag first, added the Skittles on top, and tied the bag with the ribbon and tag.

You can grab the gift tags {HERE} for free.  :)
If you do pick up a copy, I'd love to hear from you! :) :)

I've used those little kettles before, but usually just put a few gold coins in them. Yours are so much cuter! Thanks for sharing the cute pictures and the idea :)

Thank you! I was just at Party City today picking up leprechaun goodies for Friday, so will probably not go back. Planning to make them for two aides who have just spent DAYS covering shoe boxes with blue paper so kids can make individual tide pools. :) Thanks again!
