DIY Wedding Favor Ideas

If you are getting any of your wedding inspiration from the internet, you know there are all sorts of fantastic DIY project tutorials online. It sounds great in concept to have a do-it-yourself wedding, but you will end up investing lots of time in your wedding projects.

Creating DIY wedding favors is one of the smaller (and more fun) tasks that isn’t insurmountable. 

Ready to tackle making your own favors? Here are 4 DIY projects for you.

Coffee Beans – Java addicts will love this easy coffee bean favor. Basically, all you need is some burlap bags, coffee beans and a way to tie the bags. 

Ruffled Blog also shows how to jazz up the burlap bags using fabric markers to write on the bag and how to create an easy thank you tag. Try tying the bags using ribbon or strips of torn fabric in your wedding colors

Monogram Mugs – Aren’t these DIY monogram mugs fantastic? You can readily find plain white mugs to decorate. Shown here the mugs have different letters for each recipient; however you could do this same technique but write the same thing on all the mugs. Maybe try a favorite quote or design if creating individualized mugs seems overwhelming. 

You can fill the mugs with candy, cocoa packets, tea bags, or even the coffee bags shown above.

Recipes and Measuring Spoons – These heart shaped measuring spoons make a fine favor on their own, but you can make the gift even more thoughtful by adding some of your favorite recipes.The measuring spoons are tied to an envelope containing recipe cards.

No need to hand print all the recipe cards; you can print them on your printer.

Birds Nest Favors – For a spring wedding, these cute birds nest favors double as part decoration, part favor. The shape and color of the Jordan almonds makes these favors look like tiny robins’ nests. 

To add even more functionality to this great project, a place card is nestled among the candies.

DIY wedding favors are lots of fun because they can be personalized to fit the mood and colors of your wedding. 

Would you try any of these do it yourself favors for your wedding?
