My ‘crafting’ opportunities used to be few & far between, but now I am scheduling them in!
This week, all crafting has been geared toward a little farm party soiree which is looming. That way, all of those unnecessary (but oh so fun) touches to the party can actually be achieved!
At my monthly craft night earlier this week I decorated some water bottles. This is an idea that I got online that I love as the hope is that it encourages a more healthy party beverage option. I’ve found it actually works too!
(Mind you, I also couldn’t resist the little UHT chocolate milks with a cute picture of a cow on it found at the local supermarket.)
I searched and searched for some gorgeous party printables (I do so love those!) but couldn’t find any that fitted exactly what I was after, so in the end I found some gingham printable paper & using my 2 inch circle cutter (ebay purchase from the US) cut out some images from my favorite little golden book.
To lessen wastage, I like to name the water bottles. So, heading off to my favorite site for free fonts (you’ve got to check it out!) I found one I liked from their multitude of ‘western’ fonts.
I’ll also use the font on the party favours – stay tuned for some pictures when complete – I’m pretty excited about them!
Every Friday I am lucky enough to attend a craft group run at my mother-in-laws church. She helps run the creche, so the kiddies hang out with her while I get a couple of hours of kid free craft time with a lovely group of ladies. Last week, I attempted to make some of those tissue paper pom poms. Quite frankly though, they were absolute disasters (I swear I remember making them in primary school!) and I think we’ll just have to forgo that one……
They really are easy, so I’m not sure what went wrong….
If you’d like to give them a go there is a really very easy tutorial here.
For more farm party posts stay tuned! There is a LOT more to come from this party obsessed Mum!
For more creative spaces head over to Kirsty’s.
P.S. If you are thinking of doing your own farm party – I have actually just today discovered these gorgeous printables that would have been perfect! I am quite proud that I had a go myself though….
P.P.S. There is still time to link in with the inaugural linky for my regular easy peasy dinner winners!
