This easy DIY is the perfect way to wrap up the favors for you next baby shower. These fabric wrapped candy favors are super cute and will have your guests excited to open them up to see what is inside! They look like pieces of candy themselves so they would fit right in on a dessert table or on a serving dish next to the door for the guests to help themselves to on the way out of the party.
Fabric is a great tool for decorating a baby shower. Not only can you use it to cover tables, or create backdrops or simple draped garlands, you can also use it to create these favor wraps. Once you have your fabric picked out, you just need scissors, string and candy (preferably wrapped).
For each favor you’ll need to cut a large rectangle of fabric. You don’t even need to measure this; it doesn’t need to be perfect. You can see the taffy (you’ll use about 3 pieces but this is up to you!) in the photo above for scale. Then you’ll just need 2 pieces of string to tie off the favor wraps.
Scoot the candy to one side of the fabric and using both hands, roll the candy up in the favor. Although I couldn’t get a good photo of it, you’ll use both hands to keep the candy towards the center of the fabric and to keep that edge tucked under the candy as you roll the fabric up the rest of the way.
Once the candy is rolled in the fabric you just need to tie off each end. It is best if you have help to do this part! This would be a great activity to do if you have other people who are helping you host the shower or have asked to help with something. Then you just trim the ends of the string. You can always tie them in a bow, but I prefer a simple knot.
These fabric wrapped candy favors couldn’t be easier! Any guest would be excited to receive one of these little surprise gifts at the end of a baby shower! This project doesn’t need a lot of fabric or other supplies and can be done pretty inexpensively. It’s a great favor idea for when the guest list is large and you want to make sure not to go over budget!
