Last weekend my friend Mandy (read her guest post) hosted a Craft Party. She had supplies and directions to make some easy crafts, as well as some delicious snacks- like so delicious I stood by myself for 10 minutes at the kitchen counter eating after everyone started crafting. Guest could make washer necklaces, glass tile necklaces/magnets or glass circle magnets.
Washer necklace- cut pictures from magazines and mode podge onto metal washer. Tie with twine and it's a necklace! I did a thin layer of diamond glaze over the top to seal it and protect the paper. I totally had a crafting nerd moment when I realized Mandy had diamond glaze for us to use- I've been wanting to use it for a couple of months. And now I'm going to take my birthday gift card (thanks Johanna!) to JoAnn's and get me some!!
Here are my 2 magnets! Cut out cute patterns from magazines and attach to glass circles/tiles with mod podge. Then hot glue a magnet to the back of the paper.
This party was soooo fun! And the crafts were perfect- there were some people with "craft anxiety" who were able to successfully make their crafts and feel really good about their projects!
People suggested to Mandy that this be a yearly event. I'm hoping for this to be a monthly event. Mandy, what do you think?
