Winter Wedding: Favor Boxes

Thanks to one of our 2010 brides, she pointed me to this link.

How adorable would these be for favor boxes for your winter wedding?

Tools and Materials
  • Clip art
  • Toilet paper or paper towel tubes
  • Brown paint
  • Glue stick
  • Craft glue
  • Hot-glue gun
  • Wooden disks, available at
  • Wooden knobs, available at
  • Nests, available at
  • Pine springs
  • Artificial bird
  • Glitter, available at
  • Candy or other small treats

    Step 1
    Prepare Tube

    Use 1 3/4-inch-diameter toilet paper tubes or trimmed paper towel tubes. For each, you'll need two 3/4-inch-wide strips from an extra tube. Glue strips in tube ends 3/16 inch from openings. Paint tube brown. Let dry.

    Step 2
    Decorate Tube

    Trim clip art to wrap around tube, leaving 1/16 inch of tube showing at ends. Glue in place with glue stick. Use craft glue to secure a 1 3/4-inch-diameter wooden disk in one end of the tube to close it. Glue a wooden knob to a second disk. Glue a 3/4-inch disk to bottom of tube for balance.

    Step 3
    Add Glitter

    Brush craft glue over top of tube; sprinkle with clear shard-glass glitter. Brush glue on a pine sprig; sprinkle with clear fine glitter. Mix white paint with more glue; brush on a grapevine nest, and sprinkle with clear shard-glass glitter. Brush glue on an artificial bird, avoiding beak and eyes; sprinkle with colored glass glitter. Hot-glue bird into nest, and nest and sprig onto tube. Tuck favors inside; close end with other disk.
