If you are looking for rustic inspired wedding favors that won’t break the bank than these DIY S’more kits are a great option. These little guys were a hit at our romantic cabin wedding so today I am sharing a quick tutorial on how to make them. I am even including FREE printable tags at the bottom of this post that you can attach to your own s’more kits.

How to Make DIY S’more Kits:

After buying all the materials we needed for our s’more wedding favors, I made a couple samples to figure out how I wanted them. However, I realized that the graham crackers became stale after sitting for over a week and decided it would be best to make them the night we drove up to the venue {it was out of state so we drove up 2 days before the wedding}.

Of course I didn’t sleep at all the days leading up to the wedding and since things went wrong left and right, time was something we ran out of fast. Luckily my girls were there to help get these babies put together and they turned out awesome :)

Plastic Acrylic Boxes – I used 4x4x2

Printer and Paper (I used vellum paper)

Graham Crackers – we used 4 half crackers per kit)

Marshmallows – we used 4 per kit}

Miniature Chocolate Bar Nuggets – we used 6 per box

Bakers Twine

Scrapbook Paper

Double Sided Tape

Scissors

Craft Punch

mint-border-mountainmodernlife.comI had purchased a few different patterns of scrapbook paper from Hobby Lobby, which we cut into strips. I don’t remember the exact measurements because it was like 3am, everyone was running around and I’m honestly surprised I remembered to take photos, haha. We then wrapped the strips of scrapbook paper around the miniature chocolate bars using double sided tape.

I was sleep deprived, delirious, an emotional roller coaster and on a serious adrenaline rush. Apparently this is what most brides go through leading up to the big day. A friend snapped this photo as I was running around delegating DIY tasks left and right. It’s a bad photo and I look supper crazy and exhausted, but I wanted to share it with you anyway. Oh the life of a DIY bride. Good times…

I have to admit that it was difficult not to finish all of the projects myself because I was running around so much {and am a control freak}, but it was also awesome to see all the love my friends and family put in to help. It made our day that much more special.

I had printed some custom tags on vellum paper at home and then brought them to the cabins to be craft punched and tied around the s’more kits with bakers twine. We used the same craft punch on our DIY wedding invitations and I seriously sucked at it. Luckily Eric is like this craft punch genius so he punched them all for me, and in record time too. I <3 him.

The font I used for most of of the words is Georgia, “Love” is Janda Stylish Script and the “&” is Abraham Lincoln.

Don’t forget to check out the FREE s’more kit tags at the bottom of this post, which you can add your own personal details if you want.

Here are some photos of {most of} the materials:

I’m surprised this pile of pretty chocolates made it through the night.

Once the chocolates were all wrapped we folded the plastic boxes into shape {they were shipped flat}, and filled each s’more kit with 4 half graham crackers, 4 jumbo marshmallows and 6 miniature chocolates. Here are some photos of our DIY S’more Kits all finished up. Arn’t they adorable?

Here they are set up during the wedding reception. I wish we would have created 2 smaller stacks, rather than one large one. It also would have been nice not to have run out of tablecloths but we had to improvise with the gazebo not being finished.Like they say “Everything will go wrong and it will still be perfect”. Yup.

What’s so great about these DIY s’more kits, is that you can personalize them for your wedding. Not to mention you could use mason jars or clear bags rather than the clear favor boxes to dress them up.

    How did you get the graham crackers and marshmallows to stay fresh? And how far in advance did you make them?

      Hi there, I think she mentioned 4x4x2. I purchased 2x2x4 by mistake and they were way too small.

    If you don’t mind me asking, do you remember how much each individual favor cost you? Or how much they cost in total versus how many guests you had? Your way is so much more chic than just cellophane bags, but I’m trying to keep it super cost-efficient. Thanks!

    Hello! I am also having an outdoor wedding the end of August in the midwest. I was wondering if you had issues with your chocolate melting at all during the reception, and if there was anything you did to combat that? Thanks in advance!

  • Love this. It’s really cute and extremely easy to make. IMO, I would prefer this to bought favors. There is something sweet about getting a DIY gift. Made with love, right? We’ll just ignore the reality of making wedding favors–brides making DIY favors are probably dealing with a great deal of (extra) stress. Haha.

  • Hello, where did you purchase the individual hersheys from?
    I’m having the hardest time finding them!

    Hi Katie,

    This is such a cute idea! I was wondering though how did the marshmallows and graham crackers stay fresh for you? The boxes are super cute but I worry that they would get stale. How did this work out for you? Thank you!

    Hi Katie,

    Your blog has been absolutely wonderful and helpful to me! These S’more kits are so cute and such a great Idea. I had one question about them though. How did you wrap the twine around the boxes and get the tag onto them?

    Thanks so much,
    Lisa
