Some other eco friendly wedding favors that I just adore at the moment are the bird seed hearts or any shape you wish to make.
They are so easy to make and look gorgeous hanging from some dried branches in a vase on a table.
To make these favors you will need
1. Heart cookie cutter
2. Wax Paper
3. Peanut Butter
4. Bird Seed
5. Refrigerator space
7. Recycled printed thank you card, printed both sides. (names on one side and thank you for sharing our special day, on the other side)
9. Frame for table
10. Card to fit frame with "Take one of these home for the birds to enjoy. Thanks for coming. Your Names"
Tear out a large sheet of wax paper and place it on a flat tray. Put the cookie cutter onto the wax paper and fill halfway with bird seed. Put a teaspoonful of peanut butter on top of the bird seed and press flat as far as possible. Thread the card onto a piece of string and place both ends of the string into the peanut butter. Fill the rest of the cookie cutter with bird seed and press flat. Use a section of ribbon and tie at the base of the string where it meets the bird seed. Remove the cookie cutter from the contents and start again. Its that easy.
Some other ideas are to give herbs or plants in a gorgeous silver bucket. This is a gift that will last forever and provide some great herbs for your guests dinners.
Or you could have some mini topiaries like these.
I also found this on www.marthastewart.com and think that they are fabulous. Just to let you know that you can get bio degradeable compostable film packaging from Good for the Ground. Visit www.goodfortheground.com. I have tried it out and they look fabulous and are ridiculously easy to make.
You can also hand make soap and use the bars as favors with your own labels.
Remember that all the suppliers that I recommend are going to great efforts to look after our environment. Hope you enjoyed these ideas and thanks for stopping by.
