21 DIY girly party favors

21 DIY girly party favors - these are great!

My 6 year old is about to be 7. I can hardly believe it. It is true what they say about it all going too fast. Right now I’m planning her birthday party. A simple party in the back yard with games and cupcakes. I want to make the party favors this year though. Something 7 year old girls would love and their parents wouldn’t groan about more junk they don’t need (hopefully). I haven’t decided what I want to bake, craft or sew yet so I’ve narrowed down a little list of great DIY party favors of the girly variety.

The Sassy Bag Pattern from PegAnders etsy shop would be very cute!

    What a fantastic list! If my daughter were going to your daughter’s birthday party, she would love so many of these party favors. I’m bookmarking this list so I’ll remember it when her birthday comes around. Thanks for sharing!

    I think my daughter would like one of the journals (she is always making things into diaries) or the braided headband. I made the mini pinatas for my daughter’s 6th birthday party, they were a big hit, but surprisingly hard to break open. All of those are great!

    I think you should definitely do a hair band as you show quite a lot of pictures, just need to decide which one. But I think my favourites have to be the button clips and the pencil rolls. Sam xx
