With these free printable treat tags for your St. Patrick’s Day party favors, your guests will shine like a pot of gold! This fun party idea features a rainbow and shamrocks. It works great with gold chocolate coins or other St. Patrick’s Day goodies for kids or adults.
When I think of St. Patrick’s Day, I immediately think of shamrocks, rainbows and all things GREEN. But I also think of the folk tales about elusive little leprechauns and the mythical pot of gold you can supposedly find at the end of any rainbow. I mean really, who wouldn’t want to find a HUGE pot full of gold coins hidden in the woods somewhere. We’d be rich, I tell you!

While the chance of finding a pot of gold on St. Patrick’s Day or any day is slim to none, I thought it would be really fun to create a special design to celebrate this magical folklore. I just added this St. Patrick’s Day pot of gold art to our Etsy shop this week. Plus I used the same design to create a very special printable party favor or gift tag as a FREE exclusive digital download for Kenarry Idea Insiders. (Plus as a BONUS perk, Kenarry Idea Insiders get 25% off their purchases in our Etsy shop too!)

2. Cut and punch the tags for the St. Patrick’s Day Party Favors.
Next, use a single hole punch to put a hole in the corner so you can tie the tags onto the St. Patrick’s Day Party Favors.
3. Tie the tags on the St. Patrick’s Day Party Favors.
Next, cut your ribbon about 10-12 inches long. Fold it in half and push the folded loop through the hole in the St. Patrick’s Day tags about an inch. Then pull the tail end of the ribbon through the loop. This will keep your tags facing forward once you tie them to your party favors.
Then finally tie the ribbon around the top of your bag of chocolate coins to make a bow. If you’re making these St. Patrick’s Day party favors for children, you’ll want to tie the ribbon fairly loose so they can easily remove it to get to their treats.
Repeat for all your remaining bags of chocolate coins until you have enough for everyone at your St. Patrick’s Day party.
More Ideas for St. Patrick’s Day Party Favor Tags
While I attached these St. Patrick’s Day tags to bags of chocolate coins from a leprechaun’s pot of gold, there are so many other ways you could use them:
- Fill clear cellophane bags with a homemade St. Patrick’s Day treat like Rainbow Meringues, Leprechaun Chow or Pretzel Shamrocks. Then use these tags to make a gift for your friends and neighbors.
- Tie the tags around a bouquet of fresh yellow or gold colored flowers to wish someone luck before a big day or a big event in their life.
- Attach them to gift bags to give the cast and crew on the opening night of a school or community theater production – or any other special performance.
- Use them with birthday party favors for someone who loves rainbows, unicorns and all thing magical!
