A few months before my own wedding, my MOH was hosting her sister's bridal shower. She called me in a panic when she realized she had completely forgotten about favors and wish box. With not much time left, I jumped in to help. We brainstormed and concluded that the lovely bride, her sister, loves candles and daisies. In fact, daisies were part of her wedding theme. I ran to good ole Walmart, the Dollar store and Michael's. I found candles at the Walmart, "silk" flowers on stems and in bunches at the Dollar store, and ribbon, paper & boxes at Michael's.
Candle Favor Supplies/Materials: (Note: pricing calculated per dozen, then broken down)
- Votive Candle & Holder (Walmart $6.99/dozen) = $0.59 each *can also be found at Michael's for $7.99/dozen.
- Ribbon (Michael's, 1 spool per dozen at $2.50/roll) = $0.20 each
- "Silk"/Fake Flowers (Dollar Store, 1-1/2 bunches per dozen at $1/bunch) = $0.13 each *can also be found at Michael's, 1/2 bunch per dozen at $3.25/bunch.
- Cardstock for tags (Michael's, 1/2 sheet per dozen at $0.99/sheet) = $0.04 each *Tags are optional, cardstock scraps can be used.
**The total cost per candle favor is approximately $0.96 each
- Low-temp glue gun and glue sticks
- Specialty decorative scissors for tags (optional)
Assembly: Wrap ribbon around votive holder and tie bow. Trim excess ribbon leaving neat ends. Remove flower heads from stems. This typically can be done by simply sliding them off. If they don't slide off, you try scissors or wire cutters to remove the flower heads. Trim any remaining stem from the back of the flower as closely to the back of the flower head as possible to give a flat surface. This will make attaching the flower to the ribbon much easier.
Use the low-temp glue gun to attach the flower to the center of the ribbon bow.
If opting to have a tag, simply cut small tags into desired shape and size. For a little flare, use decorative border scissors. Once the tag is completed, use glue gun to attach to the ribbon on the opposite side as the flower.
*Tip: If your votive holders are tapered, you might find your ribbon slipping down. If your ribbon slips, add a small dab of glue with the glue gun under the ribbon. This should hold to the glass and prevent the ribbon from sliding.
I couldn't find boxes in the right colors. The bride loves summery, bright, fresh colors. The bottom box is more of an orange, but for some reason looks pink in the picture. I found some paper in my own craft box at home to cover basic boxes purchased at Michael's. I cut a slit in the top for the "wish" note cards. The ribbon and flowers on the top really finished the simple look. I purchased pre-made note cards at Michael's and added some flare with a fancy paper punchers that I found in my craft supplies at home :) We used the punched out daisies as confetti on the tables. It was really cute!
Wish Box & Note Card Supplies:
- Box or Boxes
- Paper to cover plain boxes (optional)
- Note cards (or paper to cut into note cards)
- Silk Flowers or other decorative embellishment for top.
Wish Box & Note Card Tools:
- Glue or double stick tape to wrap boxes (optional)
- Decorative paper punches
- Low-temp glue gun and stick
Wish Box & Note Card Assembly: Wrap boxes with decorative paper (if desired). Cut a slit in the top of the box for note cards. Wrap ribbon around boxes. Attach flowers to top with low-temp glue gun. Use paper punches to spice up note cards.
I gave these Candle Favors another try for my Aunt's upcoming bridal shower. The colors were inspired from the bright and cheery pink and purple daisy napkins.
