Preschool St. Patrick’s Day Crafts- Candy Dish

Supplies needed 

Glass candle holder
Gold tinsel
Glitter foam clover
Assorted chocolate coins

We were able to find all of these supplies at our local dollar and craft store. They are common materials that you shouldn’t have  hard time locating. You might even have some of these items in your crafting scraps from your spring craft decors from last year or supply box so take a peek before you head out to buy any.


1. Begin by applying some glue to the back of the glitter foam clover. Press it to the front of the vase. Hold it in place until it is secure. We just used one clover, but if you wish to layer several onto the front of your vase that is fine too. It is all about your preferences and what appeals to you.

2. Fill the vase with gold tinsel or shredded yellow paper. This will act as a filler and boost up any of the treats you place in your dish. Fill the vase up nice and full.

3. Add the treats. We used a theme treat like chocolate gold coins. It looks like a leprechaun could have placed them right in the dish himself. Just place the treats directly on top as we did. There is no limit to the treats you can add to this dish. Just use what you like.

Your St. Patrick’s Day candy dish is now complete! Fill it with your favorite treats or even give one as a gift to teachers, baby sitters, etc. They are so easy to make and even easier to enjoy. You can adorn your house with this awesome spring craft decor as long as the spring season sticks around as well!

Gather your supplies and give sweet and simple preschool St. Patrick Day crafts like this one a try. It is an easy and inexpensive way to get into the St. Patrick’s Day spirit and also to welcome Spring 🙂

Happy crafting!


  1. What a cute idea! I have no children and no one is coming over so I think I will not be making this one–even though I probably could (I am a klutz!)

  2. I’m not big on celebrating St. Patrick’s day but this a really cute idea. I love DIY projects and this is great for a St. Patricks day party. I’ll definitely pass this along. 🙂
