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.

Petite Pail #1 – Homespun Sweetness

DIY Wedding Wednesday: One Nest. Three Ways.

I don’t think it’s a stretch to say that DIY accents are like a tiny bit of magic. After all, they have the power to transform a look with their accenting touch. By the simple addition of texture, or color, you can add instant thematic appeal. Appreciating there may be some naysayers out there who may not instantly buy into the notion, I’m putting the theory to the test today on a simple little birdie nest. With just a bit of trim and a special filler, I managed to create three different looks. And truth be told, I’m not sure which one I love more. You be the judge!

Look #1: Woodland Wonder
