DIY Wedding Favors: Paper Succulent Pots – Lia Griffith

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!
