DIY Wedding Wednesday: ‘Petite Pails’ {Wedding Favors}

diy mini pail favors

Time to share another couple of DIY wedding secrets. #1. Adding accenting layers of fabric to just about anything pretty much guarantees loveliness every single time. #2. Couple the concept with the daintiness of a mini package and you’ve got yourself ‘guest favor perfection’. Given I’m a huge sucker for anything mini, using one of the sweetest mini containers around, I was more than happy to pull together a few samples for some visual inspiration. From the playful to the surprisingly sophisticated, here’s what just a touch of fabric can do to change up the look of one petite pail.
