I have a love-hate relationship with birthday party favors.

On the one hand, I think it’s an incredibly nice gesture to give your party guests a thank you gift. But when it comes to kids parties, I know most favors wind up in the trash because they’re nothing anybody would want.

These miniature succulent gardens, personalized with black-and-white photos, make perfect birthday party favors. Or personalize them with childhood photos of the bride and groom for wedding favors or place cards.

But these mini succulent gardens that can be personalized for virtually any occasion or party theme are definitely keepers.

I’ll show you step-by-step how to make them in another live crafting video for Crafty Hangouts, featuring products from OnlineLabels.com.

To make these cute-as-a-button miniature succulent gardens, you will need:

black-and-white striped washi tape (or pattern of your choice)
1.5 inch circle labels from OnlineLabels.com
square tin favor boxes (I found mine at Michael’s)
miniature succulent plants
activated carbon (found in pet stores with the aquariums)
small stones or pebbles
potting soil
2-inch square mini chalkboards
mini popsicle sticks
permanent chalkboard pen
hot glue

Watch below to see how to make them!

Don’t you just love all the possibilities with these?

As I mentioned in the video, they would be perfect birthday party favors for a child’s first birthday party or a milestone birthday, like a Sweet 16 or a 40th. You could showcase lots of different photos on the labels.

I also think it would be cute to use these as place cards for a dinner party. Just print photos of your guests on the labels.

These miniature succulent gardens would also make great wedding favors if you embellish them with photos of the bride and groom.

You can really put anything you want on the label and coordinate the washi tape to any theme or color scheme.

If you don’t want to go to the trouble of personalizing labels for your party favors, you can use these free printable heart labels I created.

  5. Hi Amy – these are so cute! I’m with you, can’t stand the thought of buying and giving out favors that will most certainly end up in the garbage. This darling succulent certainly wouldn’t. How cute this would look on my kitchen window seal. I’m saving this idea for the next party I host!
