Unique DIY Wedding Favors
We went to my niece’s wedding a couple years ago and her dad had created some very cool DIY wedding favors using upcycled forks. To make the napkin holders he twisted forks with plastic coated heavy duty pliers and brute strength. He glued on a few rhinestones and added a tag with the couple’s names and wedding date.
At another wedding my friend commissioned me to make wire silhouettes and she stuck them into the cork tops of tiny glass bottles. In the bottles she layererd colored sand. You could do the same thing and make simple wire heart shapes to stick into the lids. You could also add a tag with the couple’s names and wedding date.
There are some other delightful ideas available on the Internet. I found this cute idea to give a mini apple crisp kit. Perfect for a rustic chic wedding theme.
I like the idea of the DIY bubble blowers. You can make your own and even form the pink pipe cleaner ends in to small heart shapes instead of circles.
I also love the idea of making your own jam and putting them in small personalized jars.
For the sewers and tea-lovers you can make simple re-usable teabags with cotton fabric and a simple straight stitch. You can print out “Drink Tea” or “Tea for Two” on one side of the tag and the couple’s names and wedding date on the other side. Fill them with some tasty bulk tea from a Specialty tea store or with herbal teas from your garden.
