DIY Baby shower favors

I am planning a baby shower for my step daughter in the nesting/ birds theme and was having a hard time coming up with a favor idea that was within my budget. Finally, I found these white buckets at the dollar store and decided to run with it. I came up with these little buckets of "eggs" using burlap, tulle, Jordan Almonds, and ribbon. I think they turned out quite cute!

I am submitting this to Kimbas DIY day at A soft Place To Land! Go check it out!

Bucket packs of 3 - $1. These include the Thank You tags and white ribbon! However, I did purchase pink ribbon at Micahels for .50 instead.

These can be found at Wal Mart. I got mine at Michaels.

Just cut about a 3" square of burlap to insert in bucket.

I cut a piece of brown tulle and placed 6 "eggs" in each one. Tied with the pink ribbon and Thank You note, then placed bucket.
The finished product!

I made a few of these with the leftovers to display during the shower.



  1. What a cute idea! Favors can always be a tough spot when working with a theme but I think you did a great job! They are adorable!

  2. That is a great idea. You could switch that up and come up with favors for any type of party. Thanks for sharing!
