DIY St. Patrick’s Day Treat Bucket

What You’ll Need:

What You’ll Do:

Fill the favor bucket with gold tinsel. Make it nice and full.

Arrange several chocolate gold coins inside the bucket.

Bend a rainbow candy strip into a U shape. Tuck the sides of the strip as far down into the tinsel as possible. This will help it stay in place. If you want to use dabs of frosting as glue to hold the candy in place, that works too.

Place the treat bucket out as party favors and enjoy.

Simple and cute. Gotta love that.

Now, just a small note: If you use galvanized buckets for these St. Patrick’s Day treat buckets, they’re not food safe. So the wrapped chocolate coins are fine to eat, but they rainbow handle isn’t. If you want to, you can line the sides of the bucket with parchment paper and then affix the handle to the parchment with frosting, and then you can eat it.
