DIY Wedding Favor Trail Mix & Fishing Lures

Remember the adorable fishing themed engagement from last week? Well lucky us, because today we’re getting the scoop on how to make the (delicious!) trail mix and (very practical, but very cute) vintage spoon fishing lures. Both of these items would make perfect wedding favors for the outdoorsy couple wanting to create something homemade for their guests. The very talented Sarah from Park Road Photography and Alisa Lewis Event Design put these together, with Eurekame Photography and Design behind the graphic design.
