St. Patrick’s Day is a fun time for celebrations and kids love throwing a party! A party means treat cups, so I’ve put together an easy project for you. Fill these with toys, trinkets and candy to send home with party guests.

End of the Rainbow Loot Buckets


  • Green paper cup
  • Rainbow duct tape
  • 3 large green sequins
  • 1 medium green sequin
  • Glue dot
  • Treats to fill the cup, such as individually wrapped butterscotch discs, Rolos® or Werthers® candies
  1. To create the handle for your treat cup, measure and cut a 10-inch long piece of rainbow duct tape.
  2. Fold the length of the tape by one-third onto itself, leaving one-third of the sticky side showing.
  3. Fold the sticky third down onto the first fold of tape so that no sticky tape remains.
  4. Cut a small strip of tape and attach it to one end of the handle. Repeat at the other end.
  5. Stick the handle inside the cup on both sides.
  6. Cut another small strip of tape and roll it up, sticky side facing out. Put the three large sequins together to form a clover shape. Place the rolled tape in the center of all three to hold them all together.
  7. Stick the rolled tape side to one side of the handle on the cup.
  8. Press the medium sized sequin onto a glue dot and pick it up, then press it to the center of the clover. Fill your cups with toys, trinkets, candy and whatever loot you desire!

I originally made this project for Spoonful. Spoonful has since closed and the instructions were taken down. I am putting the instructions here until such time that Spoonful projects are redirected to a new home. At that time I will remove the instructions and link directly to the project on their site.
