DIY gold animal jar party favors

My recent pink and gold baby shower was a perfect opportunity to have some fun crafting and share DIY gold animal jar party favors with guests. The party’s color scheme made the gold toppers on jars filled with pink candy match perfectly but these favors could easily be used at other parties like a boy baby shower or birthday parties by changing the color of the candy.

The DIY gold animal jar party favors were a great way to thank guests for attending my pink and gold baby shower. I have a few jars left and will be using them in the nursery to store small items. 


Do you have an upcoming party to share animal jar party favors?

  1. Hello! I have tried making these but any gold spray paint I have gotten doesn’t seem to look that bright or even stay on that well! It’s almost streaky! What kind of paint did you use? I really appreciate your help!
