DIY: Newspaper Wrapped Candy Favors
Green inspired wedding favors that won't bust your budget are all the rage this season. Fortunately, we know a thing or two about being resourceful when it comes to wedding favors. Here is one of the latest trends in weddings, newspaper wrapped candy favors. Here we show you how...
Step 1) Choose any newspaper you like. Do you or your groom work in finance? Choose the Wall Street Journal. Are you a New Yorker at heart? Why not pick up a few copies of The New York Times for this project? Another custom idea is to use newspapers from you or your groom's hometown or even from the city where you two fell in love.
You can choose any candy you and your groom like. We chose Hershey's kisses because they're smaller and therefore easier to wrap. Besides, what wedding guests doesn't love a little extra take-home chocolate?
2) Cut one piece of the newspaper in half. Then place a piece of white tissue paper on top (to keep any ink from rubbing off on the candy, especially if the candy you choose isn't already individually wrapped).
3) Place several pieces of candy in the center of the paper.
4) Roll the paper up from one side and secure with a couple pieces of clear double sided tape.
5) Twist each end of the paper before tying a ribbon on either end. This can be a fun way to incorporate your wedding colors. Your guests will be delighted with this favor because it's clever and delicious. You'll love the money it'll save you as well as the simplicity of this DIY wedding project.
