DIY Wedding Favor Bag Craft Project

DIY Wedding Favor Gift Bag Craft Project - DIY Wedding Favor Idea
My co-worker is getting married Thanksgiving weekend. So when I received an assorted selection of premium cotton muslin bags from State Line Bag Company one of the first thing I thought of to create with these awesome bags were DIY wedding favors!
DIY Wedding Rice Favor Bag
Decorating the bags to look elegant was easy. I chose to stick with the natural color of the cotton, but if you have certain colors you’re using for your wedding, you can always dye these durable muslin bags with Rit dyein colors that compliment your wedding color scheme. To create these wedding favor bags I used a 2.75″x4″ premium cotton muslin bag from State Line Bag Company, some ribbon and three beads.

DIY Soap Wedding Favor Craft Project

Using a needle and thread, I sewed three glass and wire beads into the front center of the bag. I then took a piece of ribbon, and starting to one side of the beads, I sewed the ribbon around the bag until it met the other side of the beads. Next, I tied the two ends of the ribbon, now on either side of the beads, into a bow. I then placed a stitch in the center of the bow so it would not come undone.

DIY Wedding Favors - Handmade Favor Gift Bag Tutorial

These wedding favor bags are super quick and easy to make, yet they still look stylish and elegant. You could fill these bags with traditional rice for tossing at the bride and groom as they leave the church or you could put a small gift inside such as a 1oz. guest sized bar of handmade soap. You can easily make your own guest sized soap bars by taking one 4-5oz. bar and cutting it in half, then cutting those halves in half lengthwise. These diy favor bags would also be perfect for gifting small jewelry items or for tucking tiny gifts inside for stocking stuffers.

What types of items would you tuck into these tiny, decorative favor bags?

    I have been an advocate for eco-friendly products for quite some time now so I want to apply the same concept in my wedding supplies. For my beach wedding next summer, I plan to give out organic soaps, lotion and other organice stuff placed inside a muslin bag.
