Do it yourself wedding favors are probably the easiest wedding craft project there is. Your favors will be special and treasured by guests because they'll be unique. Plus, doing them yourself will save you money, and in wedding budgeting there isn't anything better!
Here are five great and simple do it yourself wedding favor project ideas:
- DIY Seed Packet Wedding Favors - Yes, you can buy these favors from
a variety of wedding suppliers, but it is much cheaper and will look better if you do
them yourself. Purchase a bulk quantity of seeds (many gardening stores sell
wildflower seeds by gallon buckets for under $10) and simply divide them up. You
can tie them up in squares of fabric such as tulle, organza or silk and then tie with a
personalized ribbon. Decorative favor tins, jars or boxes would also look great.
- DIY Bookmark Wedding Favors - The perfect choice for a literary
couple! Print your bookmark on cardstock and use an image of the two of you, a
favorite quote, the date of the wedding or anything else that would fit your wedding
theme. Punch out a hole in the top of the bookmark with a circle hole puncher and
add a colorful ribbon tassel that coordinates with your wedding colors!
- DIY Candy Wedding Favors - While the idea of a candy wedding favor
is nothing new, by doing it yourself you can choose unique types of candy and make
it more personal. No more Jordan Almonds! Why not choose red hots, lemonheads
or some other fun candy from your childhood? Purchase the candy in bulk and then
separate into fabric squares, tins or boxes.
- DIY Tea Wedding Favors - Another great edible choice that won't be
left on the tables. Purchase bulk flavored herbal tea and separate out just like the
candy favors. What a relaxing wedding favor! Great for those next day hangovers
- DIY Magnet Wedding Favors - Everybody loves magnets and
functional favors get two thumbs up! Blank magnets can be purchased at your local
craft supplies store. They can be decorated with stones, buttons, photos of the two
of you and a dozen other things. Flat wooden bases in a variety of shapes and
designs can also be purchased and painted or decorated to match your wedding
An excellent way to personalize do it yourself favors is to create custom stamps and
