15 Minute Upcycled Dollar Store Favor Bags-5 Ways!


Happy Wednesday, Friends! When I came across these cute little favor bags at the dollar store, the possibilities seemed endless. Whether you need a last minute mini bouquet for Mother's Day, festive outdoor dining accents or want to host a Memorial Day movie night, I've got you covered with today's 15 Minute Fix...

These fun favor bag crafts are so simple, you can easily create several in 15 minutes. All you need are the bags, your choice of decorative stickers and whatever you choose to fill yours.

I found the favor bags with the party goods at Dollar Tree. There are 5 per package and they come in several bright colors. The stickers I used are from the craft section at Tuesday Morning. They have the cutest selection and great prices, too! {These stores are not my affiliates--just thrifty places I shop and pass along to you. Should you prefer to shop online, I've included links for comparable supplies at the bottom of the post.}

Since these have a patriotic summer time vibe, I thought of Memorial Day and the Fourth of July. Wouldn't it be fun to host an outdoor movie night complete with festive popcorn bags and lemonade?

Want to add some soft lighting for your movie night? Pop LED candles in several favor bags to create instant garden luminaries!

Perhaps instead of a movie night, you prefer an al fresco dinner. You could still use the garden luminaries and also create colorful DIY flatware pockets for your place settings. The grasshopper is a napkin ring holding one napkin bundled with flatware, then placed on top of a second and tucked inside the favor bag. You may remember the napkins from my Easter garden brunch.

The favor bags are also the perfect size for mini bouquets. Add fresh herbs for a "just because" friendship or hostess gift...

  2. How cute these are! I haven't seen these at my Dollar Store yet but will keep an eye open. I LOVE Tuesday Morning but most have closed in our area sadly. Sometimes our Dollar store has beautiful stickers and scrapbook embellishments too. I love all of the creative ways you used these bags!
