5 DIY Wedding Favors You Can Make in an Evening

Brides: if you’re looking for easy DIY (do-it-yourself) wedding favors you can tackle in an evening, you’re in for a treat today! We’ve teamed up with the folks over at Weddingstar to feature five hand-picked DIY wedding favors, all of which are fun and easy-to-do. To pick a wedding favor guests will love (and remember), make sure it a) is functional, and b) coordinates with your wedding theme. We spent plenty of time browsing Weddingstar and we were impressed by the quality of these wedding DIY supplies and how easy it was to incorporate any wedding theme. Plus, you can add your own custom touches with initial stickers, twine, personalized tags, and more. We are SO excited to share what we’ve created for you today: read on to see five easy DIY wedding favors we know you’ll love! (P.S. Which one is your favorite?)

5 Easy DIY Wedding Favors

Weddingstar (who celebrates their 30th anniversary this year) offers many fun, unique DIY wedding favor ideas. Instead of catering to one theme or skill level, there’s a little something for everyone (from novice to amateur DIY crafter). We tried our hand at a few of our favorite DIY wedding favors from their site; see what we’ve created below!

DIY Wedding Favors - Bell Jar Cupcakes by EmmalineBride.com

DIY Wedding Favors: #1

DIY Cupcake Bell Jar Favors

If you love cupcakes, you’ll really love this wedding favor idea! We created DIY miniature cupcake favors for guests housed under these charming little glass bell jars. A personalized tag sweeps across the front of the jar and adheres in the back. This DIY is perfect for a wedding favor or bridal shower favor. We used miniature cup cakes because we felt they looked best under the bell jars, as well as won’t upstage your wedding cake. We also piped frosting on the top to look like roses.

You’ll need…

Supplies

Bell Jars with Fluted Base
Personalized Crest Paper Wrap Ribbons / Tags
– Miniature Cupcakes (make your own – cheaper + FREE samples!)
– Betty Crocker Icing Can (Pink) with Decorating Tips (at your local grocery store)

Steps

1. First, bake your cupcakes and allow to cool. Use an ice cream scoop to place the cupcakes into the liners (it works great!) Pipe them with icing to create a ‘rose’ like effect. It’s easy: just start at the center and work your way around in a circular pattern using the decorating tip on the icing.

2. Keep cupcakes in the refrigerator until you’re ready to display them. This will keep frosting from melting.

3. Wrap your ribbon tags around the bell jar and adhere with clear sticker dots (they are included with the ribbons free of charge). Place cupcake on fluted base and place bell jar on top.

Supplies

Skeleton key bottle opener
3/8″ Grosgrain ribbon (we used lavender)
Rectangle tags
Heart hole punch

Steps

1. Punch a hole at one end of your tag.

2. Cut an 8″ piece of ribbon; fold in half.

3. Place key on folded ribbon, loop through the hole of the tag (reverse side up), pull the ribbon ends through the loop, and pull to create a knot.

DIY Wedding Favors: #3

DIY Cherry Pies in a Box

These miniature pie box favors are perfect for a rustic, homespun wedding (and one of the cutest ideas we’ve seen yet!) And, they’re extremely easy to assemble.

5 Easy DIY Wedding Favors: DIY Cherry Pies in a Box via EmmalineBride.com

You’ll need…

Supplies

– Miniature pies (buy ’em or save money + bake them with this)
“Sweetie Pies” Mini Pie Packaging Kit (includes everything you need to make 20 individual pie box favors: pie boxes, wax liners, pre-cut bakers twine, and gift tags
– Hole punch (like this)

Steps

1. Once you’ve baked your pies – and allowed them to cool – assemble a pie box. Simply fold on the lines to form your box, remove the adhesive stickers to attach box sides, and press firmly.

2. Fold your wax liner in half and place lengthwise across the newly formed box. Place a pie on the liner and close the box.

3. Use a hole punch to make a hole on one end of the tag. Tie bakers twine to the tag and use the ends to wrap around the box. We recommend tying a secure knot and bow with the twine to ensure the box stays closed.
