Shamrock Candy Dishes Craft Idea

There’s still time to spread a little St. Patrick’s cheer to all of the little leprechaun-chasers in your life. And doesn’t candy taste better when delivered in a cute little package?

Check out how I turned these ordinary little plastic containers into cute Shamrock candy dishes in three easy steps.

First, shamrocks to me, or four-leaf clovers, are really just heart shapes arranged in a flower shape.

I got out my handy heart paper punch and a variety of green patterned scrapbook paper. I also found the perfect little plastic containers to decorate with recently in the dollar section of my local Target.

I’ve also wanted a project to test out the Mod Podge Dimensional Magic I received at the recent CHA show. That paired with Extreme-Glitter Mod Podge and I knew I had the makings of a cute craft idea!

Step one: punch out hearts with medium sized heart paper punch.

Step two: apply coat of Extreme Glitter Mod Podge on top of lid, arrange heart cut-outs on the top in the shape of a four-leaf clover and apply more glitter Mod Podge over the top and let dry.

Step three: After the glitter layer is dry, apply a small amount of Dimensional Magic on top of the hearts and let dry. I used a cotton swab to clean up any excess. This step is optional, but I think it added some nice dimension and extra flair on the top.

When your decorated lids are completely dry, add candy of choice in each dish.

I think they turned out so cute!
