Peat Pot Wedding Favors DIY
These peat pot wedding favors can be displayed at each reception table place setting or gathered together in the center of each table as part of a centerpiece. Another idea is to feature these DIY wedding favors with placecards on a separate table for guests, which would make an eye-catching display.
Fill each one with a pretty succulent — or whatever else matches your wedding style!
DecoArt supplied me with the Chalky Finish Paint colors you see below, and I’m also a DecoArt Blogger, but my opinions are 100% my own. Some of the links in this post are affiliate links. I explain more here.
DecoArt Chalky Finish Paints
I adore these paints! I will walk you through each color in a short video, below. (Yes, you read that correctly! I made a video! More on that in a moment…) These are only some of the many colors offered by DecoArt, and you can see the entire color chart by clicking here.
Peat pots are what gardeners use to either start plants from seed, or to help little seedlings get a good start before planting outdoors in the garden. That’s what I usually use them for, but lately I’ve been crafting with them too! The two types that I seem to keep running across are pictured above. (I don’t know if there’s more styles than these.) The one on the left has a look of burlap and a natural deckled edge. The one on the right has lots of ruffled nooks and crannies.
Where to Purchase Supplies
I’ve found the best prices for peat pots on Amazon — especially because they have so many varieties and quantities to choose from. Click here to see all of your options.

My suggestion is to hit your local craft stores for the best prices on DecoArt chalky finish paints. However, I’m including this Amazon link to see all of the color options easily.
I used simple twine and secured them with mini Glue Dots. You can also use small dabs of a super strong adhesive too — like Aleene’s Turbo Tacky Glue — however I find using the glue dots to be easier because there’s no mess. Glue Dots also makes a product called Glue Lines, which could work even better for this project.
Attaching Twine to Peat Pots
In the video, I mention using little dots of glue to help secure the twine. Here’s what they look like:
Once you put them on, then simply place the twine over the glue dots like so, before you begin to wrap the twine around your pot:
