For the first time in ages, I’m not hosting Thanksgiving dinner this year. Gloria and Georges will be having it at their home. It’s going to be pot luck, so I’ll still be making several dishes for our family and friends. Even though I won’t have guests coming here, I wanted to make some Thanksgiving favors for others. I’ll take these to Gloria’s place to share.
Thanksgiving Candle Favors from Dollar Store Items
Making these dollar store candle favors doesn’t take much time at all, so you can easily make quite a few of them. Since most of the supplies used came from Dollar Tree, the cost for them is low.
Supplies Used for Candle Favors for Thanksgiving
- Dollar Store Jar Candles
- Dollar Store Felt Leaves
- Rose Gold Card Stock
- Laminated Canvas
- Hot Glue Gun & Sticks
- Hole Punch
The jar candles, ribbon, raffia, felt leaves can all be found at Dollar Tree. The other items I used were on hand.
To cover the jar lids, I traced circles from sheets of laminated canvas sheets. You could use any cloth or even heavy card stock. To keep items like this inexpensive, using what you have is always a great idea.
Assembling dollar store candle favors for Thanksgiving
The circles are attached to the lids using spray adhesive. This avoids having any uneven glue spots.
Since the raffia was pretty thin, I cut three strips of it and twisted them together before hot gluing it just below the lid of the jar. A couple of dots of glue is all that’s needed.
For some color contrast, I used strips of brown ribbon. It’s hot glued around the outer ridge of the jar lid.
More raffia is used to tie a simple bow. A dot of hot glue holds it in place on the ribbon.
I bought a couple of packaged of small felt leaves at Dollar Tree. Each package has an assortment of colors. These were attached to mini clips, but they pulled away easily so that I could glue them to the candle favor jars.
The finishing touch was to add a little more interest to the top of the lids. Using a small hole punch and a piece of rose gold glitter card stock, I cut circles and glued one to each lid.
Making a set of six Thanksgiving Candle Favors took less than thirty minutes.
Whether you’re hosting or being a guest for Thanksgiving, these dollar store candles are great for sharing. I’m looking forward to seeing what they have for Christmas and making more of them.
