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. If you like this DIY wedding favor idea, also be sure to check out my DIY Soap Wedding Favor Tutorial along with the other DIY Wedding Favor Projects on my blog.

Succulent Love – Creative Ways to Not Have a Green Thumb

I may receive compensation from links on this site. See my disclosure policy.

I love succulents. They are the one plant I almost never kill. And when I say almost, I mean I have killed a succulent or two by over watering by thinking I needed to make up for forgetting to water for weeks and sometimes months. But now that I’ve learned that most succulents can take my forgetfulness, they are my favorite indoor plant. (Outdoors I grow herbs. They forgive my lack of maintenance too.) So in case you find you’re a little like me – slightly crafty but lacking a green thumb – here are a few ideas to bring the outdoors in as the weather begins its journey into cold and dreary.
DIY Succulent Terrarium from BirdHouse Blog
Simple yet stylish, this DIY Succulent Terrarium from BirdHouse Blog will fit perfectly in your windowsill or on a bookshelf. It’s small size makes it practical for any room or perfecting for gifting someone else you know and love who is also lacking the much sought after “green thumb.” Keep it manageable and in its pot by pruning leaves as it over seeks its bounds. Plucked leaves can be rooted right into new soil for baby terrariums in every room.
DIY Succulent Table from Far Out Flora
If you’re in love with a rustic look, consider a bold approach and craft a DIY Succulent Table as a living room coffee table or side table. The size and dimensions are entirely up to you. But regardless of how large or small you go, this is one table sure to make a statement you’ll never grow tired of.
How to Make Modern Cement Planters Using Packaging from Re-Nest
You can make these small, yet practical Succulent Cement Planters by using recycled food packaging as your molds. They’re easy to make in batches as favors for events and are perfect for using as bookends. Go extra creative and spray paint the planters with chalk board paint for even more fun and a planter that is always customizable.
DIY: Book Planter with Succulents from Green Wedding Shoes
Whether you’re creating a wedding centerpiece or just want something incredibly unique to decorate your own home, these DIY Succulent Book Planters take the cake! Fill in around the succulents with moss and fake flowers for extra pizazz or a touch of color that matches your room’s decor.
Make a Living Succulent Picture from Better Homes & Gardens
Don’t have the space for pots? Hang (or prop) your succulent garden on the wall with this DIY tutorial from Better Homes & Gardens for making a Living Succulent Picture. Just water your creation on a flat surface once a month and make sure it sees a little sun from a nearby window. It’s instant art without the anguish of finding something that fits that hard to fit room and also makes for a great conversation piece.
What’s your favorite way to display your indoor plants?
