DIY Burlap & Lace Wedding Favor
Send your guests home with an adorable keepsake in these DIY burlap and laced wedding favors. Easily customizable and undeniably adorable, these gift bags are sure to make your guests ooh and ahh.
It's no secret that one of the most exciting parts of attending a wedding is going home with a unique keepsake that you’ll hold on to forever. Tie your party favor in with your theme by encompassing some of the elements of your decor into the party favor bags themselves!
Little burlap bags are the perfect place to tuck a wedding favor for your guests. You can sew the bags yourself, but I found that I could purchase them very inexpensively and then spend my time embellishing them and filling them with special treats. The best part? These burlap bags are so cute and convenient, your guests will undoubtedly find other great uses for them once they've removed the favor itself.
Tie the tops and then you can add a tag with a monogram or message.
For these favors, I simply attached a white ribbon rose to the outside of the bag. You can make your own ribbon roses, or buy them in bags from the craft store. I made a little thank you tag and tied it with an ivy leaf to the top of the bag. Simple, inexpensive, and undeniably adorable!
