watercolor favor tags

I am excited to share with you these festive watercolor labels, my latest DIY for Project Wedding. First a confession; I have completely jumped on the watercolor bandwagon this spring. After styling the watercolor ice cream bar, I realized how much fun it was to paint this way. My favorite thing about watercolor projects is the feeling that everyone can be an artist in the process.

For these favor labels simply use a white crayon to write in your text and then enjoy combining together pretty spring shades of watercolors. Paint with a simple foam brush. As the label paint dries, the wax from the crayon will show through leaving a festive way to communicate with your guests.

Use the painted labels for wedding favors, escort cards, party decor or as gift tags for your spring presents. Such a simple project, even the kids could help with this one.
