  1. Shamrock Toilet Paper Roll Stamp

This stamp is a five minute craft to make and perfect for kids!  All you need is four empty toilet paper rolls, tape, hot glue, green paint and paper to stamp your creation on.  This makes a great personalized card to send to friends and family to let them know how lucky you are to have them as your family!

 

  1. Bottle Cap Rainbow

Bottle caps come in different sizes and colors.  Save your bottle caps to create a rainbow in hopes to get a pot o’ gold at the end of this rainbow this St. Patrick’s Day!

 

  1. Soda Bottle Pot O’ Gold

Speaking of gold—create your own pot with an empty soda bottle.  Cut off the bottom, paint black and even add sparkles!  Don’t forget to add the “gold”.  Rolo’s are a great option because the foil wrapper can be recycled after it has been enjoyed!
