DIY Favor Magnet Board with M&Ms and Evite

I have clients all the time who want to do favors for their parties, but they just can't decide what kind of favor they want to do without spending a ton of money. 
I often say to my clients that most party guests prefer edible favors.
 I think most people would rather have a little something sweet than a bar of soap or a beer koozie with someone else's name on it!

So that's why this idea by Evite for My M&Ms is really a cute way to display a favor that everyone is guaranteed to love--My M&Ms!
DIY Favor Magnet Board

Here's what you will need to make your very own DIY Magnetic Favor Board!

  • Silver tins and favors such as My M&M’s personalized silver candy tin sets with personalized M&M’s
  • Magnet board (we used one from the Container Store) If you can't find a magnet board, you can buy magnetic chalkboard paint any most hardware stores. 
  • Chalkboard spray paint
  • Chalk marker (we used Chalk Ink)
  • Flexible magnet tape (we used Roll-N-Cut)
  • Flower garland and floral wire (optional — available from florists)

First, spray your magnet board with chalkboard paint. Allow to dry.

Using your roll of magnetic tape, stick a small piece onto the back of each metal container.

Fill each container with your My M&Ms. 
You can even personalize your My M&Ms with any color, text, or even a picture!

Then, use your chalk marker to personalize the board!
