Homemade Baby Shower Favors

If you are looking for homemade baby shower favors that are cute, yummy and look great as decorations, consider making these cute Marshmallow Baby Rattle Pops.  They were created by Alexandra of  Apron Strings Baking. The top and base of the rattle are made of marshmallows with a lollipop stick for the base.      Chocolate melting disks serve as the coating and the pops are finished with sprinkles.    For a complete tutorial, be sure to visit Apron Springs Baking.    You will find a link to the tutorial above.

Be sure to follow Alexandra’s link showing the words “marshmallow pops” and it will take you to her original tutorial.  The baby rattle pops are actually variations of the original.  Your guests will be thrilled to receive such a cute favor.    You can display them in many ways, from putting one at each place setting to inserting a group of them in a vase.

I found another great idea for homemade baby shower favors.   Decorative and fun, these DIY baby shower favors are sure to dress up your table, and provide guests with some sweet treats to take home.  Created by Debbie of Debbie Do’s.com, you will find that these mason jars are as versatile as they are cute.

Debbie took ordinary mason jars and spray painted them light blue.   If you know that the baby will be a girl, pink would be a great color.  Of course, if you don’t know the sex of the baby, any pastel color like green or yellow would work well.  After spray painting the jar, you can decorate it with twine and a bead.   Another option would be to tie ribbon around the mouth of the jar.    When it comes to filler, you can use your imagination.  Candy is always appreciated, but the type of candy is up to you.  Finding lollipops, pixie sticks, or other candy that stands up is ideal.  You can use colored crinkle paper as filler or even candy.   I found some small, wrapped mints that would serve as a great base where a few lollipops could be inserted.  Any treat on a stick will work like cookies or brownies.

With school just around the corner, this favor could also be used for a back to school party with markers, colored pencils, rulers and other school supplies as the filler.    These favors will be the most functional ones possible as the contents will be used daily by those who are fortunate enough to take them home.
