Wedding Favor: Clove Box

dscf1357-1-copy
Most wedding favors, if they even make it home, wind up in the trash or given to the maids here. They are usually not appreciated or wanted, generally serve no practical purpose, and might be considered mere dust collectors. A friend of mine had this sitting on her desk and it caught my eye. It was a wedding favor. It is a round box with a lid, entirely made of fragrant cloves that are tightly strung together. So not only is it functional, but it smells utterly divine. I would definitely keep a wedding favor like this! I’m not sure where it was made, but the workmanship is amazing. Below is a close-up.

    I love that clove-woven spice-laden fragrant wedding favour. It must have taken ages to make…

    I like dust collectors. That’s a really cool box, what amazing workmanship. And bonus that it smells good too.

  9. Love it! Some of other other brick-a-brack that you get simply collects dust somewhere.

  10. Were they glued or sewn?I’m intrigued,I think I just found the new next craft project on the list……

    My goodness, this is an impressive work! I wonder how long the artist worked on it, and how many of these little boxes she had to make?

    This is indeed amazing, both the idea and the workmanship. It could make a fantastic spicebox for our Havdala service.
