I love entertaining and helping others with parties. Many of my close friends ask for help all the time and I love it. Whether there is a theme or not, my basic ideas can always be used interchangeably for all parties and special occasions. I thought I’d put together some DIY party favor ideas that can be used for any type of occasion simply by changing the color to fit the theme or color scheme.
I recently used Toilet Paper Roll Gift Wrapping to wrap some small souvenirs that I brought home from a recent trip. Toilet paper rolls are a great size for party favors. You can even make these and cut them in half. Fill them with candy or chocolates and place them at each place setting.
The possibilities are endless for the reuse of Tic Tac Containers I have made Repurposed Tic Tac Packs Craft Kits. I filled Tic Tac containers with glitter and made little craft kits that are perfect for a party for a little girl. You can make themed craft kits by color, for example, blue and white glitter for Cinderella or Frozen or green and red for Ariel.
For an adult party, you can make pairs of recycled wine charmsout of wine corks. I used seashells for mine but you can also glue or paint on any small trinket to match a party theme.
DIY Favor Containers
Embellishing existing containers is a lot of fun too. I used some Duck Brand tape and Washi tape to make these easy anytime treat bags. Just change the color and pattern to fit your needs. I also stenciled some burlap gift bags to make personalized favors for each guest. This project was fun and the girls are able to reuse the bag for other things when they get home.
Sometimes the party favor is too pretty to cover. Use colorful candies in regular plastic containers like these Anytime DIY Party Favors for Kidsormake cookie lollipop favors from any type of holiday cookie or a cookie with colorful icing and put it in a clear treat bag with a tag and ribbon. Pretzel treat bags are not only for pretzels! Use them to display other beautiful sweet treats like these frosted animal cookie party favors.
