Luck Of the Irish ... Shamrock Flower Gifts

Now on to the gifts for the class rooms.  I wanted to make something fun for the kids to take to their classmates, but again not spend a fortune doing so!  I found two really cool ideas, yes I'm a nut and have to do a different kind for each kid's classroom.  Yes I admitted I'm a nut! First was a Lollipop Shamrock found on With Glittering Eyes.   The Second one I did was inspired by a Pot of Gold on Craft Journal

Lollipop Shamrocks


What you Need:
Lollipops (Blow Pop Bag - Dollar Tree)
Green Card Stock
Hot Glue Gun
Hole Punch
Basket (if you want for transportation)
Foam used for fake flowers (holds lollipop in place)

She used a cut out for her shamrocks.  I did a Google search and found a template on Enchanted Learning that I then printed on to green card stock paper.  I got to cutting out the shamrocks (this is the time consuming part, NEXT time I will use the foam Shamrocks found in a pack of 12 at Dollar Tree - Used for the Second Project).  I used a hole punch to put the lollipop stick through the shamrock.  This made the hole a little larger than I wanted so I added a dab of hot glue to hold the paper to the lollipop.  I found a green basket and cut down some foam to hold up the lollipop shamrocks.




Shamrock Bouquet Flowers


What you Need
Foam Shamrocks (pack of 12 Dollar Tree)
Gold Candy (Rolo's work but I'm cheap and found gold candy)
Green Straw
Hot Glue Gun
Basket (if you want for transportation)
Foam used for fake flowers (holds lollipop in place)

I must admit the Rolo's would look cuter but I had to buy what was there at the Dollar Tree so I didn't have to run to another store to buy Rolo's.  I put a dab of hot glue to hold the Gold Candy in the middle of the Foam Shamrock.  I added a little hot glue to a straw to add to the back of the foam shamrock to look like a flower.  I did the same as above with the green basket and foam to hold up the Shamrock flowers.





2 pretty easy items to make for the kids.

Any St. Patrick Day Plans?

  1. Our kids aren't allowed to bring in any food of any kind (including candy) to be shared because of food allergies.
