For a lovely wedding favor that will fit nicely into your daisy themed wedding décor try a hand decorated pot and daisy seeds. For this homemade wedding favor you will need several packets of daisy seeds, small terracotta pots, white, yellow, and green polymer clay, a piece of glass or a cookie sheet, a hot glue gun, and hot glue sticks. You will also need to use an oven for baking the clay, and you may use a needle or pin to add detail.
Start by softening the clays by playing with them in your hands. Then separate the yellow into several large sized balls. Separate the white into several small balls, and separate the green into several medium balls.
Flatten the yellow balls into shapes that are similar to the center of a daisy. If you like you can lightly poke the yellow disk with a pin to add texture. Then roll the white balls into thin cylinders and flatten them to look like flower petals. Then pinch opposite ends of the green balls into points and flatten the clay into a leaf shape. Add a line down the center of the leaves by pressing the side of the needle into the clay. Bake the clay according to directions on the package.
When the clay pieces have cooled use the hot glue gun to attach them to the flower pots in the shape of daisies. Add the seed packets to the center of the pots and your homemade wedding favor is complete.
