In my opinion, St. Patrick’s Day has always been one of those just for fun holidays that is meant to put a smile on your face. I love taking these simple holidays and making them a bit more meaningful. If you don’t normally celebrate St. Patrick’s Day, this will definitely be a fun find for your spouse!

And if you do… well, this is just perfect for you!

St. Patrick's Day Craft for Spouse

When you’ve completed all your love notes, you’re ready to set up the St. Patrick’s Day Surprise pouch where your spouse will see it!

Go a step further and set up this pouch with some bright rainbow candy – think skittles or my hubby’s favorite {something sour} like Airhead Extremes. Those rainbow candies are always gobbled up in seconds around here.
