Succulents are enjoying huge popularity at the moment and they look set to stay that way which I’m super pleased about. These paper succulent DIY wedding favors are perfectly on trend and have the added bonus of lasting a lifetime, so your guests can take home the perfect memento of your special day! This is the ideal project for your cutting machine if you have one but they can be hand cut for a more natural finish if you’d prefer. I used a variety of paper card stock from My Minds Eye including a textured card stock with polka dots, a felted card stock and a vibrant aqua wash paper. Real succulents come in such a glorious palette of soft greens, blues and purples that it can be fun to really play with colors on this project. To add a little rustic “bling” to the design we applied gold leaf to these cute little terracotta pots from which we picked up in Lowes for less than a dollar. The foam balls and moss are also inexpensive to buy making these a really affordable DIY wedding favor – hooray for that!
You’ll find the pattern at the bottom of the post, and the tutorial here. And below the tutorial for the gold foil pots plus instructions on how to put your DIY wedding favors together. These are a lot of fun to make and look just beautiful in clusters of 3 to 5 on your celebration tables or one for each guest with their names attached. I just LOVE to see my designs out there in the world, so if you make these favors (or any of my other designs!) for your big day, be sure to snap a picture and tag me on Instagram or Twitter using the hashtag #liagriffth. Enjoy! ~ Lia
