Favors are always a fun thing to make. I sometimes wish I could have parties every other day so I can spend my time making DIY party favors every day! That sounds crazy – but that’s how much I enjoy making favors. Well, whether you’re having a wedding, a bridal shower, a tea party or an elegant soiree, these lace etched jar DIY party favors are fun to make, inexpensive and easy option! See how.

Step 1. Punch out your vinyl with a border punch with delicate lace edging, or another design if you prefer a different one. I changed my mind at the last minute and used a different Martha Stewart punch to fit the proportions of my jar better.
Step 2. Carefully apply your design onto the cleaned surface of your jar (make sure you wipe it down and clean the dust and oil off of it). Adhere the design well by pressing it down with your fingers.
Step 3. With your paintbrush, apply a generous amount of Armour Etch onto the sides you want to look ‘frosted’. Make sure to have straight lines on the top portion of your jar – you don’t want it looking wonky! Let it sit for about 10 minutes and then wash it off before taking off the vinyl mask.
Step 4. Pat them down to dry.
Step 5. Lastly, fill your jar with your favor of choice and then embellish it! I filled mine with loose-leaf chamomile tea (the jar will hold about 2-3 servings), wrapped the top part with cotton cord and attached a personalized stamped metal charm.
