Budget-Friendly Wedding Favors: 3 DIY Mason Jar Ideas

Need some inspiration for cute and customized wedding favors? We’ve got an idea that is simple to make and has a homemade feel to it that will really ‘wow’ your wedding guests! 

Wedding favors can really get pricey, and sometimes it's hard to pick something out that all of your guests will enjoy and get use out of. The solution? These DIY mason jar ideas! Mason jars are still very much "in," and they are super budget-friendly. Plus, your guests will love to eat the candy that's in them AND they can reuse the jars!



For this adorable favor, you just need mason jars, ribbon, pretty gift tags, the candy of your choice – and a little inspiration! We’ve got three super-cute themes to choose from so pick up these simple supplies and get creative!



  • Mason jars
  • Candy
  • Ribbon
  • Blank Gift Tags

Fill each Mason jar to the brim with the candy of your choice, and make the tag out with one of the messages below. We love these three corresponding themes:

1. “Hugs & Kisses from the Mr. and Mrs.” Write this message on the gift tag, and fill the jar with Hershey kisses.

2. “Mint to be.” Write this message on the tag, and fill the jar with the mints of your choice.

3. “Our love is Red Hot." For a sexier message, write this phrase on a tag and fill the jar with red hots.
