Easter Party Favors


By Lauren Lodder

My daughters graduated from eating baby food long ago, but we still had used baby food jars hanging around our pantry. At some point, I knew I would find a use for them. And to my daughters’ delight, this weekend I did.

Take a look at these adorable DIY Easter party favors.


What you need:

  • Baby food jars
  • Candy
  • Cupcake Liners
  • Rubber bands
  • Ribbon
  • Glue Gun
  • Paper Grass
  • Easter Decor

Once you have collected all of your materials, it’s time to get to work. The best part of this DIY project is you can personalize it in any way you want. For example, you can fill your baby food jars with your kid’s favorite candy and select a cupcake liner that perfectly aligns with your party theme.

I chose to fill my baby food jars up with Smarties because they are pastel, and we happened to have a big, unused bag hanging around the house. Jelly beans would have been another great option.


Once you have filled up your jar, you will want to screw back on the baby food lid to keep your candy fresh and place the cupcake liner on top. This next step is key: tie your rubber band around the cupcake liner. It is easier to tie a bow around the cupcake liner if you have the rubber band in place.

Next add your ribbon. If you do not have Easter decor to add to the top of your cupcake liners, your party favor will still look great — particularly if you find a liner with a creative design. If you do find Easter decor, simply glue it to the top of your liner as I did. I found paper grass and my bunny topper in the card aisle at the supermarket.

Here is our finished product! It is easy to create and adorable.

If you are looking for fun ideas for other occasions, here are the favors I created for my daughter’s Candy Land themed birthday party.
