How to Make Candy Pacifier Party Favors

Sharing is caring!

Looking for a precious and super simple party favor for an upcoming baby shower? Wait until you see these!

All you will need is:

  • lifesavers
  • gumdrops
  • royal icing (you can buy it prepackaged and you just add water)
  • icing bag and small tip
  • ribbon

How to Make Candy Pacifier Shower Favors

First, gather your supplies.


Prepare the royal icing and place it in an icing bag assembled with a tip that will allow the icing to flow easily but with control from the bag.

Use the royal icing to attach two lifesavers together making a  ‘T’ as the picture below illistrates.


Next, use the royal icing to glue a gum drop to the top of the lifesaver ensemble as illustrated below.  

Let the royal icing dry for a couple of hours to ensure the candy is secure and intact.


Then use ribbon, you can go as expensive or inexpensive as you want, to make a necklace strand that will allow your guests to wear these delicious party favors at the baby shower.

    Beautiful space you got here.

  14. I hope you don’t mind but I used this idea for a baby shower at my work place for 3 ladies who are having babies. I actually just finished making them and the party is not until wednesday. How can i store them in the fridge?

    1. Kelly, these tutorials are here for you to use! It is an honor that you would make these to celebrate the life of a new little one… or three. 🙂

      As far as storing them, I would let them dry 100% and then place them all in a gallon size ziplock back in the fridge. That is what I would do. Let me know if that works well.

      I hope your baby shower goes perfectly. Let me know how much fun the pacifier necklaces are. If guests wear them around their necks, everyone will smell minty fresh. It’s fun!
