Remember when I said I was posting Mexican food today? Yeah, just in case you couldn’t tell from the title, this isn’t Mexican food. It’s Friday. I’m tired. It’s been a long week filled with those “Aw, crap, I’m a grown-up now” moments (believe me, when I was 18 and told my parents I couldn’t wait to move out, applying for a new sewer tap was not #1 on my list of things I envisioned myself doing). I am highly motivated by sugar, cuteness, and easy food-related crafts and de-motivated by marinating pork loins and cutting up whole pineapples. I’m a promise-breaker, what can I say?

In case you didn’t know, unless I’m struck by magic craft lightning, I glean pretty much all of my crafty ideas from other people. That’s okay as long as I fully acknowledge that fact, right? I saw these little St. Patrick’s Day rainbows here at Maple Memories and decided to make some of my own. My kids thing they’re pretty dang awesome, even if (okay, especially that) they contain about 10 days worth of sugar in one little package.


If you want to make these extra cute, check out some of these rainbow printables that you could cut out and tie onto the bags (some of them may need to be re-sized):

Simple as That
It Is What It Is

The Swell Life

Happy March! Happy spring (I know it’s technically not spring, but March is spring in my book)! Have a great weekend!


  1. I don’t think of rainbows and candy wrapped in gold when I think of St. Patrick’s Day. From my youth I remember candy Irish Potatoes and clay pipes. Now that I am past the age of majority, I think of Irish Brown Soda Bread, Jameson’s Irish Whiskey and Guinness Extra Stout. Then there is always corned beef and cabbage.

  2. I’ve been planning on doing something similar. In fact I bought the Twizzlers about a month ago because I was so paranoid they’d be sold out! I went to get rolos (I seriously cannot find any gold chocolate coins this year!) but Walmart didn’t have them. Really? Walmart? I thought they were supposed to have everything! I was going to use marshmallows as clouds, but I LOVE the idea of cotton candy! Much more ‘cloud-like’! Love you ladies!

  3. these are the cutest little treats! my kids would love ’em! thanks so much for linking to my st. paddy’s day printables! 🙂 have a great weekend!

  4. Soooo cute – what a fun idea! I pinned this and it has already been repinned more than anything I’ve ever posted. By the way, how do I find you guys to follow on Pinterest?

  5. I can sing a rainbow! That song has been in my head all week, and I sign it too, so when you mentioned it in your post I was laughing so hard. These are super cute, I love all the colors of twizzlers!
