DIY Chocolate Candy Wedding Party Favor Gifts

Isn’t it funny where inspiration comes from? At times, it’s somewhere completely random or even unknown. I’m thinking the inspiration for these DIY chocolate candy wedding party favor gifts may have been handmade soaps or even those beautiful yogurt bowls I’ve seen on Instagram. To be honest, I’m not sure – I’ve done some searching and haven’t stumbled across anything similar.

I made these up as a hostess party gift/favor and got drafted to make up some bridal shower favors. So here’s my DIY tutorial for beautiful chocolate/candy melts. They are so easy! Some affiliate links included.

Supplies I used:  DIY chocolate candy melts bridal wedding shower party favor gifts tutorial @diyshowoff essential oil infused gift idea

Total Time: Approximately 30 min. 

Serves: This silicone mold is a large size (3×3 inch). Two bags of melts makes 6. 

What I did:

I transferred candy melts to quart sized baggy (I used two: light cocoa and white) and melted according to package instructions – either in the microwave or in a double boiler. My experience: I carefully set both bags (unzipped) into the microwave on ‘defrost’ for 50 seconds then checked and repeated and re-checked until melted. Instructions warn against overheating and I didn’t have any issue.

*Melted candy will be hot. Please use caution!

I set my silicone mold on a small cookie sheet (a tray or something that gives the mold support to be moved and that will fit into your freezer works). 

Once my candy was melted, I added 2-4 drops of Peppermint Vitality essential oil to the melted white candy, zipped the bag and kneaded the baggy to mix. I didn’t do it with both colors, just one.

Then I snipped off a bottom corner of the baggy (very small snip!) with scissors and piped the candy into the silicone mold and repeated with the other color. I filled each silicone space with half and half of each candy into each square.

Next I gently shook/shimmied the mold to level the melted candy. 

Using the skewer, while candy was still melted, I swirled the colors to create a beautiful unique design where the colors meet.

I am in LOVE with how each square is a unique and one of a kind design! I think this was my favorite step! I started out with just more of a zig zag but then discovered that the more swirly, the better.   DIY chocolate candy melts bridal wedding shower party favor gifts tutorial @diyshowoff essential oil infused gift idea breakfast at tiffany's

Then quickly decorated with icing roses, sprinkles, colored sugar, edible decorations, etc.

I placed the tray/silicone mold in freezer to set the candy. It didn’t seem to take long at all…probably about 15-20 minutes if that. Sometime I let it sit overnight if I got busy.

Then I removed them from freezer and carefully popped the bars out of silicone mold.

I placed them into a bag and secured with a personalized label.

Beautiful! I love that each design is unique, don’t you? They’re so pretty, so professional and designer-looking but so easy to create! I can’t wait to make more!

This batch was a “Breakfast at Tiffany’s” theme. 

DIY chocolate candy melts bridal wedding shower party favor gifts tutorial @diyshowoff essential oil infused gift idea breakfast at tiffany's I whipped up 60-70 of these for a bridal shower but since you can personalize them with any candy melts (so many colors!) and any deco ratings (so many colors and shapes and ideas!), they’d work for not only bridal showers but for Mother’s Day, baby showers, wedding favors, party favors, hostess and teacher gifts, prizes, etc. I made a few every evening over a couple of weeks’ time. I gave a few out as essential oil infused door prizes and at Easter to my family too. I even had my grandson helping me decorate a few!

DIY chocolate candy melts bridal wedding shower party favor gifts tutorial @diyshowoff essential oil infused gift idea breakfast at tiffany's Warning – not only are they a beautiful sweet treat, they’re so addicting to create! Here is the very first batch that started my madness (without the swirl technique)…

DIY aromatherapy heat/cold {rice} packs: Snuggle Bunnies

Who likes a little extra comfort with some warmth when cold, cooling off when hot and relaxing/calming essential oils to promote a good night’s sleep!? Don’t we all? 

embracing wellness blog hop #oilyfamilies

Only a few more weeks ’til Easter. (And we host our family’s dinner/get-together which is why you haven’t seen any major DIY projects in the works…no creating a bigger mess until post-Easter around here). But…enjoy some smaller fun projects in the meantime.

Looking for a (useful and handmade) gift idea? I like to give my nieces and nephews candy-free gifts. Since I’m so in love with essential oils, I think these cute lil’ snuggle bunny heat/cold packs are a nice gift idea. Perfectly soothing. Also a cute idea for essential oil class/party door prizes too.

Personalized Baby Gift Set

I love being creative when it comes to baby gifts and personalizing a baby layette set with iron-on vinyl decals is just so easy to do!

DIY personalized baby layette gift set @diyshowoff

Supplies:

What I did:

Using my Silhouette studio designer edition software, I created a few fun decals. 

DIY personalized baby layette gift set @diyshowoff

For iron-ons, text (and some images) will need to be mirrored/flipped horizontally. Simply right click and choose “flip horizontally”. 

DIY personalized baby layette gift set @diyshowoff

Load the vinyl into the machine shiny side down (the shiny side is the transparency side). 

DIY personalized baby layette gift set @diyshowoff

Adjust settings for cutting heat transfer material and send to cut. Unload vinyl from the machine. (Note: I do not use a cutting mat as shown below.)

DIY personalized baby layette gift set @diyshowoff

Cut off the excess vinyl/material and weed (remove) the unwanted part of the the vinyl leaving just the decals. 

DIY personalized baby layette gift set @diyshowoff DIY personalized baby layette gift set @diyshowoff

Set iron according to heat instructions provided with vinyl iron on. 

Place iron on decal, shiny side facing you (iron on isn’t sticky but the clear transparency is…sticker side down to help hold iron on in place). 

DIY personalized baby layette gift set @diyshowoff

Cover with a cotton diaper cloth, burp cloth or towel and heat iron on according to instructions.

Carefully peel away transparency (if iron on pulls up too, re-place and iron some more).

DIY Project Parade and Handmade Boutique Baby Collection

This week, I finally finished this…
My Handmade “Boutique Baby” gift Collection…
Warning: 
This is a long post with a couple of tutorials, links and LOTS of pictures!
I finally wrapped up (literally) my handmade baby gifts. 


I think I got a little DIY-happy but I really wanted to create a handmade boutique baby collection. Everything was so easy and I just couldn’t stop. 😉 I shared the sweet banner I made a few weeks ago…





as well as the Super Easy No Sew Tutu Tutorial
(This is the one I made for my niece’s 1st birthday when I took her pictures as her gift but I made one for the gift collection too.)


Here’s what else I tucked inside the gift box:

Baby Legwarmers Tutorial

Materials: A pair of ladies size socks (these ones are from Target – I had a hard time finding the right pink). Scissors and thread/sewing machine (or by hand).


1. Lay out each (ladies)sock and cut just above the heel. Set the “leg” part of the sock aside.

2. Cut the ‘heels’ and ‘toes’ of each off. 


3. Fold the ‘foot’ part of the sock in half (underneath) so inside and out shows the right side of the fabric and makes a ‘cuff’.



4. Slide ‘leg’ part into ‘cuff’ all right sides out, lining up the raw edge.


5. Pin 3 layers together evenly, lining up the raw edge.


6. Sew as close to the edge as you can, making sure to capture 3 layers.

7. Trim if necessary and flip up cuff. Cute legwarmer from ladies socks!


Handmade Peony Headband Tutorial

Materials:  Plain elastic headband, silk peony and rhinestone. Hot glue.

1.  I used a wipes container to stretch headband. 

2.  Disassem
ble the silk peony. Use wire cutters if necessary.

3.  Hot glue layers of the flower onto the elastic headband.

4.  Add layers until as full as desired.

5.  Hot glue rhinestone into center. Let dry.

Ta-da! Pretty BIG flower headband!

And using these beautiful fabrics (fabric.com) and baby flannel for the backing (reversible bibs, aprons and burp cloths from Joann Fabrics).

Appliqued Onesies Tutorial

1. Iron interfacing to fabric.

2. Trace shape onto paper side and cut out.

3. Peel away paper and iron onto onesie.
4. Iron applique into place in center of onesie.
Note:  I drew on eyes using these!!!  Sharpie Fabric Stain Markers!

5.  Stitch into place.
Ta-da!


Or cut shapes from fabric pattern:

I did my own version using the applique method above and the sewing machine:

Lots of “after” pictures.  I’m just so proud that the entire collection is handmade and pretty cute. 🙂

What do you think? I think it makes me want a baby girl! I hope she likes it all and loves pink!

DIY Counting Sheep Baby Banner

It’s rare, but there’s a baby related project in the DIY Show Off house! NO! Not for me! I‘ve been invited to a baby shower and I just love giving handmade baby gifts. (Tara, if by chance you’re reading, please stop right here!) Unfortunately, I can’t make it to the baby shower (my baby girl’s graduation party is the same day) but I have a whole handmade collection planned and here’s the first thing in the gift box: 


A sweet baby girl counting sheep banner, inspired by cute bird, butterfly and bunny banners but designed and DIY’d by me with a counting sheep theme.

Not guaranteed to help baby sleep, but it sure is cute. 

Materials:
Scrapbook paper (It doesn’t take much. Two 12×12 sheets will work but more if you want more designs.)
2 ribbons (I used almost 1 spool of organza, 1 thin satin)
Baker’s twine (a thin ribbon or twine would work just as well)
Number ink & stamps or stickers #1-10 (or free hand)
Tape

Tools:
Pencil
Scissors
Hole punch
Optional:  Xacto knife

Counting Sheep Banner Tutorial
10 steps to 10 sheep
#1 Print a lamb stencil or template from online onto card stock and cut out. (Optional: you could also use your Cricut or Silhouette to make die cuts.) 


#2 Trace onto scrapbook paper and cut out sheep shapes. I used an Xacto knife and alternated the direction (flip the sheep stencil) so my sheep were facing each other in sets of two {><} rather than all facing left {<<} or right {>>} or back side to backside {< >}. Trace and cut out 10 sheep. I used pretty paper in pinks for baby girl (to coordinate with other handmade items planned).


#3 Punch 2 holes beside each other near the top of each sheep. Near the top keeps sheep from twirling on the string. I tested punching holes in different areas. Near the top works best. (Optional: reinforce with eyelets. I also punched holes for eyes…animals without eyes make me sad. You could draw on closed/sleepy eyes too.)


#4 Number the sheep 1-10 using rubber stamps, stickers or draw on with markers.

#5 Cut 11 five inch pieces (eyeball it…no need to measure) of pink ribbon and 22 five inch pieces of organza (or do your own ribbon combo/thing). This is tied between each sheep.


#6 Pull a length of baker’s twine. Tape off the end (it keeps the twine from fraying and makes threading easier).


#7 Add sheep. Thread from back to front in one hole. Then front to back in punched hole right beside it. Repeat for all 10 sheep.


#8 Space out evenly. I left about 10 inches of twine on each end for hanging. Cut and tie a loop on the ends of the twine (loose knots to allow resizing the loop for bigger hanging on drawer knobs, smaller loop for thumb tacks or safety pins).


#9 In between each sheep, I took 2 pieces of organza with 1 piece of satin ribbon and tied a knot. (Shabby Chic option: use frayed pretty coordinating fabric pieces or strips of tulle.)


#10 Space evenly again (leave them semi-moveable to accommodate different areas in the gift recipient’s home or tape twine on back to keep in place). Ready to hang!


Isn’t it so cute? I want one for me and I don’t even have a nursery. I love pretty decorative banners and ‘counting sheep’ is perfect for a nursery! 

  • Hang it across drapery
  • Tie on dresser pulls 
  • Use as wall art
  • Cute learning to count tool 
  • Baby shower decor. 

Lots of options. Now lots of pictures:



hope she likes it. 🙂

Super Easy, Cheap, No Sew Tutu Tutorial and DIY Project Parade

Well – OOPS!  This was to publish Sunday but I messed up the date. Welcome to the party one day early!


My niece’s 1st birthday is coming up and as our family’s (amateur) photographer, my gift is portraits.  

Her mom wanted pictures of her in a tutu. So cute!  Loving DIY and little girl stuff, I offered to make one.  

No Sew DIY TuTu Tutorial
under $10!
This might not be anything new or unique. I’m not up on the latest DIY baby but in any event, here is what I did.
Please pardon the blurriness of these pictures. I forgot to change my settings. 🙁

Materials:  Ribbon, Roll of Tulle, Scissors

How to:

1.  I guestimated my niece’s waist size (and it was perfect too!).  Measure around waist.  Add 12″ to each end (24″ to waist measurement) and cut ribbon to length. 

2.  Tie a knot 12″ in from the end on each side.

3.  Cut strips of tulle to desired length.  For a 1-yr.-old, my strips were 12″ long.  If you have tulle in yardage, just cut strips on your own about 6″ wide and desired length (which will be folded in half in next step). For my niece, I used 30 (12″) strips of tulle from my roll.  
4.  Gather strip of tulle.

6.  Fold strip in half. Put “hole” (fold) of tulle over the ribbon between the knots.

7.  Pull ends of tulle through ” tulle hole” and knot (pull ends underneath ribbon and up through the ‘tu
lle hole’. Ribbon will be inside tulle).
Knots will look like this:


8.  Weight one end of the ribbon (I just put it under a heavy vase) and continue steps 5, 6 and 7 until finished from one knotted end of ribbon to the other. Weighting the one end allows you to slide knotted tulle into place.
Finished tulle knots:

9.  Trim tulle and ribbon if needed.  Optional:  Add ribbon in a different or coordinating color scattered throughout. Add flowers. Use different colors of tulle – get creative!


Super easy, right?  TUTU cute!

I‘ll be sharing a few more DIY baby girl projects coming up – I’ve been invited to a baby shower too and love handmade gifts. Don’t you?
