The first project I experimented with was Oreo Cookie Pops, and they came out AMAZING.  I would 100% recommend this to anyone out there looking for an affordable, fun, and easy wedding favor DIY idea.


  • “Candy Melts” (available in the cake decorating aisle at your local craft store) – 1 pkg made about 15 pops)
  • Popsicle / lollipop sticks
  • Plastic “wrapper” bags
  • Ribbon, twine, or twist-ties to close the bags
  • Oreo cookies
  • Sprinkles of your choice

Voila! Sweet wedding favors for $0.40 or less!


$0.40 per cookie pop  – this includes everything I shopped for AT FULL PRICE.  Have a coupon, or catch the ingredients on sale?  Awesome, that price will be much lower!


  1. Each package of “candy melts” made about 15 pops per bag (not 25)
  2. Melt the candy chips over VERY low heat and stir constantly
  3. The chocolate stays pretty thick, even when fully melted.  You may find yourself “frosting” the cookies with a small spoon on all sides.
  4. Put the stick in all the way to the TOP of the cookie so that it’s anchored in well.  Make sure you cover the top of the stick with chocolate as well, so that when it hardens, it will be anchored all around.
  5. Add sprinkles right away on the wet chocolate.
  6. They will take overnight to completely harden.


  • Mini terra cotta pots from the craft store
  • Acrylic paint
  • Potting soil
  • Succulent clippings
  • Personalized favor tags

This project is so customizable … you certainly don’t have to even paint the pots.  You could fill them with candies instead of soil and a succulent.  You could add a personalized favor tag, like shown in the photos below (link to purchase below too – SO CUTE!!!).

I love this DIY wedding favor idea, because it’s such a blank slate.  You get to pick and choose exactly how much time, money, and effort you want to spend!
