These are the brands we used. (someone couldn't wait and opened up the bag early to sneak a few Life Savers!) For the chocolate, CandiQuik works great - but you can also use white chocolate chips.

Melt the chocolate in 30 second intervals, stirring in between each one. You really don't need much chocolate, I used 4 squares to make about 30 pacifiers.

DIY Homemade Baby Shower Favors: Paint Can Favor And Gift Ideas

We have created a simple little paint can favor that is perfect for holding:

  • Chocolates or candies
  • Candles
  • Bath beads, little soaps or bath fizzies
  • Lotion
  • A cute bar of soap wrapped in a washcloth and tied with a cute ribbon
  • A $5-10 gift card to a bookstore, coffee shop or iTunes

    You will need a mini paint can which can be found at a craft store, hardware store or online (try ebay.) You can find them in clear or galvanized tin

    Take the paint can and wrap it in decorative paper (optional) (We used scrapbook paper ~ they have adorable prints available!) Cut the paper to fit the can. Attach the paper with tape or a glue stick.

    If your can came with a handle, you can tie several strips of cute ribbon or fabric around the handle to cuten' it up! This looks adorable!

    Fill the can with some crinkle paper or any cute filling


    These can be used for baby shower favors or prizes. To make them extra cute, attach a cute tag with the shower details. Example:
