Sweets and treats are always a cute favor idea. Today I have a DIY Mini Candy Favors I found these adorable mini terra cotta pots that fit in the palm of your hand and thought they’d be perfect for making wedding or shower favors! Give each guest an adorable mini pot filled with candy!

I always have a hard time throwing away pretty paper and fabric scraps.  I just can’t pass up the chance to find a home for charming little patterns and prints! So, I’m constantly trying to find ways to use them in other projects.  These candy pot favors are the perfect way to put those piles of scraps to good use!  Fabric is an adorable way to dress up these pots and incorporate your wedding colors into your favors.

Step 1: Paint the inside of your pots.

Step 2: Preparing small sections at a time, paint the Mod Podge onto your pot and begin sticking on your fabric.  You can mix and match fabrics, overlap patterns or try to line it up the best you can. Whatever you think works best with your fabric. Don’t worry if your fabric is handing off the edges.

Step 3: Trim any fabric sticking off the edge of the top or bottom.

Step 4: Paint your entire mini pot with a final coat of Mod Podge to hold in place.

Step 5: Repeat. I like the idea of choosing fabrics with different patterns and a similar color palette so that each favor is unique but they still look nice together as a whole.

Optional: Add on a simple tag to thank your guests for celebrating with you!  These favors could even double as cute escort cards or place settings.  Just picture how they’d look when set up in volume at your event. One for each guest, how sweet!
