I just realized St. Patricks Day is a week away. The team has featured a few ideas for this holiday, but I thought it would be fun to make a little pot of gold craft featuring one of my favorite candies…skittles! I don’t typically decorate for St. Patrick’s Day, but I think it’s fun to do a few things with the kids. I saw a similar idea last year in the Family Fun Magazine and new I had to make them for my kids this year.

These are so simple to make and your kids will LOVE them! I plan on giving one to my hubby too! Here’s what you’ll need to make your own.


  • Plastic container (found these at Hobby Lobby)
  • Skittles
  • Rolos
  • Free printable download (for personal use only)
  • Paper cutter or scissors
  • Twine or string


1. Place about 8 rolos in the bottom of your container. Then layer each color of skittles until you reach the top. Print out your free printable on a colored printer (at the actual size -2 inches). Then cut out the tag with your paper cutter. Tie your tag onto the container with string and then you’re done.

"You are the pot of gold at the end of my rainbow" free printable!

Such a cute and easy gift idea!
