A Craft Party

by Casey Baudoin

Crafting and making has always been one of my favorite things to do, and it is even better when you do it with friends.  Throw an easy craft party, with festive headbands for everyone to wear, refreshments, and a good stash of craft supplies to get the creativity flowing!

Paper Gemstone Crown

by Kitiya Palaskas

Here’s a fun and sparkly accessory that’s perfect for all of those upcoming holiday parties! I made mine out of various shades of gold paper – but it would be fun to experiment with different colors of the rainbow. To start this easy project, use our template to make a bunch of paper gemstones. Then attach them a headband using hot glue. Voila – an easy and fun twist on the traditional party hat!

A Party Animal Party

For Roman’s birthday a few years ago, I surprised him with a bunch of “party animals” - complete with miniature party hats. I think it would be fun to expand this theme and have a whole party animal party! Here’s what my party would include. What would you add?

Party Hat Station DIY

by Danyelle Mathews

Party hats instantly make a special event feel more festive. Plus, kids love them. At your next shindig, wouldn’t it be fun to let the kids decorate their own? To make a party hat station download this party hat template and prepare a few hats before your guests arrive. Buy inexpensive and fun supplies like artificial flowers from the dollar store, pom poms, and googly eyes. Have glue handy for the kids to attach their desired adornments. Good ‘ol Elmer’s worked great for the pom poms and googly eyes. Hot glue is best for the artificial flowers. Choose a pretty satin ribbon that coordinates with all of the other supplies and enjoy seeing what your little guests create!
