My sister is getting married in August! This has really started me thinking about wedding favors and how much fun it is to give something away that is handmade. And let’s not forget the savings from making your own. Most of all I think that a little handmade flare for your wedding day is a thoughtful way to say thank you to guests from far and wide.
My sister’s colours are coral and mint (love!) so I made up some of these cute mason jar candles as an idea for her wedding favors. You can see the full instructions on how to make them over at My Own Ideas.
Take for example these jar candles from West elm Market. Beautiful. Vintage. Rustic. I really do love them but the price? $26 each! Yowza.
For under $5 you can make ones shown in this post using my candle making kits, some mason jars, and labels from myownlabels.com. If you can get your hands on some vintage jars, then you are even in better shape for a stylish and smart wedding favor.
