How to make Disney themed favours

Glass slipper.jpgWhile we’re on a Disney wedding theme we thought it only right to continue it for the rest of the day. In our last post we gave you a few ideas on how to give your day that magical theme, however, we decided to keep the wedding favour aspect until now. There are a number of keepsakes you could use to tie in with a Disney theme, and many can be made. We give you three options.

Glass slippers.
Perspex empty glass slipper containers can be bought from many online wedding favour stores for around £2-£3 each and are perfect for continuing your Disney theme. Jazz them up to really bring the theme home.

What you’ll need.
To make a Disney glass slipper you’ll need some organza, which is available from most haberdashery and fabric stores, some small sweets such as smarties or tiny white pear drops, and some edible glitter, which can be bought from your local craft store or bakery.

Get sparkly
Take your chosen sweets and place them on a large tray. Liberally add the edible glitter and mix them all together. Make sure that the glitter is evenly spread before adding them into the plastic slippers.

Get crafty.
Take your tulle and loosely wrap it around the slipper leaving about an inch and a half at the top for tying. Cut this size out and use it as a template for the rest of your favours. Once you’ve done this take some ribbon (we suggest this has some sort of sparkle on it) and tie it at the top.

Princess cookies.
If you’re artistic and have patience then another way to wow your Disney guests is to make some princess shaped cookies.

Again, shapes for these can be bought from your local craft store. However if you can’t find these and desperately want to use this idea we suggest you buy a Disney colouring book (no, we’re not going crazy) and cut out a Disney Princess sketch. You can then use this as a template to cut around for your cookie mix.

Once baked, choose icing to match the character you have chosen before placing cookies in a cellophane bag and finishing with a ribbon.
