St. Patrick's Day Table Decor/Treat Container

We made these cute table decorations/treat containers from empty, plastic pudding containers.  

Simply wash and dry the container.  Paint it green (acrylic paint), and allow it to dry.  Cut a belt and buckle from black and yellow construction paper, and shape a shamrock, using green chenille stem.  We used white tacky glue to attach our items.

For a treat container, simply turn upside down, fill with treats, and cover the top with a cut piece of black construction paper (using glue to attach the "cover").  

Treat containers are a fun way to extend school class parties, offer adults a small guest gift as they leave a party, or simply use them for an inexpensive treat for anyone.
