Looking for an easy and economical St. Patrick's Day treat?!

You've reached the easiest Saint Patrick's Day treat to give to your kids or bring to their school to share with teachers and classmates.

snack containers dressed up as hats for St. Patrick's day

I used these Snack Containers found at the Dollar Tree Store. 

Two containers for one dollar, and they even come with a spoon. 

They have them in many colors, but of course, green is the one that works here. ;)
paper, glue and green plastic snack container are the materials used for hats

You'll also need paper (black, gold, and green), glue, and a small piece of tape.

The band is created with a long strip of black paper to fit the top rim of the container.

A small gold rectangle with an even smaller black one on it is attached to the band.

Green paper circles to fit the container's base or the hat's top were also cut out.

That way, you'll only need to cut them out and secure them with tape.
