CELEBRATIONS: Painted Bride & Groom Wedding Favors

Painted Bride & Groom Wedding Favors - homework - carolynshomework (2)I’ve had this idea for wedding favors in my mind for a few years now but never made them. It wasn't until recently that I found the right size plastic bride and groom figurines and could barely contain my excitement. I grabbed the pack of tiny cheap poorly painted figurines and threw them into my basket.

Whoever was the first creative soul to spray paint a plastic figurine was a genius. Aren’t the little bride & grooms cute? Use some quality permanent glue like E6000 to adhere your figurines to your jar lids. Let dry and then give them 2-3 coats with white spray paint.

Once they’re completely dry, fill the clean jars with some pretty candy. Now make 197 more of these!

You can put one wedding favor at each places setting or set them out on a tray.

  1. I totally LOVE this idea. Where did you find the plastic figurines? I do agree using the wedding colors would be awesome also. Could also work for Quincineras, Proms, just about anything that a man and woman go to together. So cute.

    1. Thank you Judi. I got the figurines as an independent dollar store here in Los Angeles. I think it's called 99cent plus or something. But they're the type of figurine that would be a cupcake topper so maybe a bakery supply would carry them. Thanks again!!

  4. The white is really pretty and way more classy than the one eyed groom!

  5. These are so adorable. I've been wanting to do some dinosaurs, soldiers and animals to make little favors for little kids who visit our home. Maybe I'll fill the jars with crayons or chalk instead of candy. Thanks for sharing!

  7. Awesome Wedding favors ideas! My best friend is going to get married next month at one of traditional wedding venues Los Angeles. She’ll use a traditional theme for wedding and I am thinking to buy a traditional gift for her.
