Traditional Almond Bags

Traditional Almond Bags

Almond bags are simple to make and very traditional, but they are a great way to add a splash of color to your wedding tables or to set a color theme.

What you need

Net or tulle
Thin ribbon
Sugared almonds


You can now purchase silver and gold coated Almonds for an elegant feel.

Cut your netting into a round circle, around the size of a dinner plate.

Place the almonds in the middle then pull the edges up and secure with an elastic band or just the ribbon.

Very easy instructions!

You can also use a hole punch to punch holes around the edges of the circle and thread your ribbon through the holes, this will make your bag a draw bag allowing easy opening and closing for the guests.


  1. Almonds packit can be useful for festivel

  2. world’s most original idea.

  3. Easier method: buy pre-cut circles of Tulle at Craft store, place circle in small custard or tea cup add almonds, gather & tie.

  4. Oh come on! Poor directions???? This is the simplest favor you can make and you need more detailed directions? Give me a break! Personally, I think the directions were fine and very explicit. Find something else to complain about!!

  5. you could make a pattern by tracing a plate
