Somewhat out-of-the-ordinary, these quirky little favours are called Tillandsia, otherwise known as air plants, and need nothing more than air and minimal moisture to survive. Their wild dramatic shapes look striking against the softly coloured, textured sea urchin shells and make cute take-home wedding favours.
To make: The plants and shells can be purchased from nurseries and online. To make the favours, attach the plant to a small stone or pebble with waterproof glue, wire or a twist tie before placing into the shell. Make a small gift tag and glue it onto the end of a toothpick.
Caring for the air plant: Air plants need to have sufficient light and need to dry out totally after watering - they don't like to have wet feet.
