Easy Personalized Party Favor Ideas
If you are looking for easy personalized party favor ideas I have a couple for you. I made these DIY personalized party favors for a #DisneySide party I hosted over the weekend. Disclaimer this post is in no way sponsored by Disney or BMS Media who did sponsor the party. I will be sharing our fun #DisneySide party in another post.
Buying party favors can be so expensive and can really add to the cost of a party. Whether it be a Disney themed birthday party or any birthday party you are planning. I like to try to make things myself to cut down on the cost.
Cheap & Easy DIY Party Favor Ideas
I made two different party favors for the #DisneySide party I hosted. I wanted some cute goodie bag favors that I knew the kids would love. I personalized bubbles that I bought at the dollar tree and party store to match the theme of my party. I also made DIY Glitter Goo to go in the goody bags. The kids loved both of the party favors. Both of these party favors can be made for any party theme you might be hosting just by changing up the colors and design of card stock and washi tape.
12 DIY Personalized Party Favor Bubbles
Why did I make two different type of bubbles for the party? Well I started out with the large bottles of bubbles from the Dollar Tree. Originally I planned to have my party at a local park but the weather was iffy with a 30 percent chance of rain so I canceled that idea. The large bottles of bubbles would have been so much fun for the kids at the park.
To decorate the bubble bottles for my Disney Micky Mouse party theme I planned to peel off the label and then cover the bottle with the card stock. Normally these labels would peel off no problem and in some cases they are glued on so badly that they fall of while the kids are playing with them. Well the labels on these bubbles are glued on with cement glue I swear! When they didn’t come right off I soaked one in hot water and washed the label off one bottle. It took a good hour just to get the label off. But there was a sticky layer of glue I just couldn’t get off no matter how hard I scrubbed. I even tried using a magic eraser. So I said to myself forget it. It’s too much trouble to get these labels off. So I headed out to Party City to find some of those cute little bottles of bubbles in colors to match my party theme.
For the smaller bubbles I just wrapped a piece of black and white polka dot washi tape around the bottle and stuck a gem sticker on it. They are cute but I was really disappointed that I couldn’t decorate the large bubble bottles the way I wanted to. I got the idea from Money Wise Moms who made these Washi Tape Bubble Valentines as a way of celebrating Valentines Day with a non candy treat.
So while I was complaining to my daughter Megan that I had to go buy the little bottles of bubbles because I couldn’t get the label off the Dollar Tree bubble bottles my daughter says to me. Mom just wrap the card stock over the label. Why are you trying to remove the label? Yes I had one of those duh moments. Sometimes I get stuck trying to make my idea come to light and can’t see around the issue at hand. Have you done that also? I hope so because if not I may just be ready for the nursing home the way my kids keep
At this point you have a couple of options. You can do as I did and punch out a circle of coordinating scrapbook paper and glue the circle in the center of the washi tape bands. This looks very nice and gives the bubbles a very finished look. Or you could get some gem stickers and decorate the band of card stock with the gems.
Or you could just leave the bubbles as they are with the color coordinated cardstock and washi tape. I liked the way all three types of decorations looked so I made a few of each style.
