Need a quick and easy thank you gift for a friend? Don’t worry, I have you covered with a budget-friendly thank you gift that pretty much anyone will appreciate – from your next door neighbor to your best friend.

I recently made these painted succulent favors for Project Wedding, but they could easily transition into a little pressie for any occasion, so I thought I would share them here. The pots are actually paper baking cups, which I painted in different designs and colors. There are stripes, polka dots, and even a few ombre ones (which actually remind me of the plaster painted votives I made a while back).

P.S. Don’t forget about Father’s Day…If your dad like to garden this would make a great last minute gift or add-on for him too. You can easily paint the baking cups with a more masculine design.

fantastic little DIY project for any occasion. great for a hostess gift or for take home gifts at a wedding shower. I love the polka dot ones too, and it would be fun to mix and match with different paper. Thanks for sharing.

So clever, cute and affordable!! This is a brilliant idea and I will be sharing it with my daughter-in-law as a possible table favor for her Relay For Life luncheon. Thanks for sharing with us.
