Four Pretty Wedding Favors
Where to Start
Begin by picking up a box of David Tutera Casual Elegance Flip Lid Glass Jars. I got mine at Ben Franklin Crafts and Frames in Redmond, WA. You can score a box for less than $8. Aren’t they fun? The possibilities are limitless!
Cheap and Chic Favors
Here are some of the ideas I came up with. There’s no rule that all wedding guests have to receive the exact same favor. You could nab a bunch of these jars and go crazy with your stash, decorating each one differently and saving money by NOT buying any extra embellishments. Or you could choose 2-4 designs and keep your costs down by making the least expensive ones.
Supplies: Jar, letter sticker, circle punch, card stock, floral wire and hot glue.
Directions: Punch a small circle out of cardstock. Add letter. Use hot glue to to attach to lid. Twist a piece of the flower wire around jar. Add candy.
Supplies: Jar, small flower and leaves, lace and hot glue.
Directions: Hot glue leaves and small flowers on top of jar. Add lace around middle. Fill with candy.
Supplies: Jar, burlap flower (also David Tutera), gold paint, leaf ribbon and hot glue.
Paint gold on edges of burlap flower and let dry. Flatten bottom of flower as much a possible. Got glue a snippet of leaf ribbon to bottom of jar and place burlap flower on top. Add candy.
Supplies: Jar, faux flower and hot glue.
Remove a large flower from bunch of plastic flowers. Make the bottom as flat as possible. Use hot glue to secure to lid. Fill with candy.
