How to Make Wedding Favour Jars #Wedding #WeddingFavour

Wedding favours have come on in leaps and bounds in the past few years, with personalised gifts and favours now being given to reflect the bride and grooms personality. From packets of seeds for your guests to sow, to cute mini succulents and cacti, there are a million and one different things you could do.

If you and your partner have both got a sweet tooth, favour jars are a great choice as it’s something that you can both do together and maybe sneak a sweet or two whilst making them!

Whether you upcycle, recycle or buy your jars, they wouldn’t be complete without a little bit of decoration, from tags to ribbons, adhesive gems to glass paint, you can really be adventurous when it comes to packaging.

Here are a few ideas to get your creative juices flowing . . .

How to make

These small but perfectly formed sweet jars are perfect for beginners to try their hand at, all you need are a few crafting essentials in your chosen wedding colour scheme and your away!

  1. Start by wrapping twine around the neck of the jar, and thread on your tag of choice. Secure with a double knot.
  2. To create the mini tassel. Wrap twine around four of your fingers, approximately 10 times (the thinner the twine the better!). Then thread around 15 centimetres of twine between your third and fourth finger and tie in a tight knot that goes around all of the threads (you may need an additional hand to help you here).
  3. Cut the loop at the base that goes around your first finger, and trim any threads that are a little bit longer than others.
  4. Thread some twine through the top loop of the tassel and then tie onto your jar.

To add some variety to your favour jars why not create a few different designs?

  1. For a simpler quicker design, wrap a length of ribbon around the middle of your jar, securing on the back using a glue gun.
  2. Tie a length of twine/string around the neck of the jar and secure with a double knot on the front. Thread your tag onto one of the two threads, and then secure with a bow.

If you want to really treat your guests or you’ve got quite large sweet treats to fit in, larger jars are just as easy to decorate . . .

What you need

How to make

  1. Make sure all your jars are clean and dry with the labels removed.
  2. Stamp out your chosen greeting on the place cards using clear or rubber stamps. If you’re using a place card and it has both a back and a front use a pair of scissors to cut along the fold line.
  3. Allow the ink to dry and then attach it to the front of the jar using spray glue.
  4. Measure the inner size of the jar lid and cut out circles from decorative paper to fit. This is also a great way of covering up any unwanted labels, if your recycling your jars. Attach to the lid using spray glue.
  5. Finish the jars off with little wooden doves (or embellishment of your choice), attached to the front of the label.
