Crafting Party

1.  Art Inspired Birthday Party Theme ~ Bright colors, fun crafts, and beautiful food.  Get all of the colorful details of this Art Inspired Party that Abigail from Paper and Cake threw for her daughter. 2.  Wild Alphabet Hunt Party ~ This adorable Wild Animal theme, "mixed with a little ABC power gives you a Wild Alphabet Hunt".  Some of the fun activities were a "Wild Alphabet Hunt", "Make a Name for Yourself", and decorating letter shaped sugar cookies.  A great summer theme to help children learn their alphabet. 3.  Brown-Baggin It Party ~ Brown Kraft paper isn’t just for lunch bags, grocery bags or even book covers.  It’s perfect for party decor and wrapping party favors.  Lay out brown kraft paper to use as a ‘tablecloth’. 4.  Bubble Birthday Party ~ A fun bubble party! A great party theme for small children.  Fill a plastic pool with dish washing soap and water for tons of bubble fun.

5.  Crayon Coloring Party ~ This coloring themed party has a plethora of colorful decorations that are all inspired by the first rainbow we fell in love with, CRAYONS!  You will be inspired by the homemade decorations, party favors, and fun Crayola colors that make up this birthday party theme.

Craft Creations

6.  How-To: Party Craft Station ~ A craft station is a hit at any party, and inexpensive to put together.  Ours was an Indian Elephant Themed Party, but yours can feature anything your child loves!

7.  Jewelry Making Party ~ Pull out the beads and buttons to make some fun jewelry!  Everyone can make their own jewelry and not only wear their creation, but take it home as a party favor.

8.  Lace Princess Crowns ~ Every princess needs her crown.  Right?!  You can make your own by stiffening the lace and painting it the desired jewel tone with Precious Metals.  You could also lace stencil cupcakes for the party here, wrap bottles in lace and make a lace banner here.

9.  Art Party {Painting} ~ Not only is this party yummy to look at, you can tell more focus was placed on what the kids were actually going to do at the party, rather than what it would look like.  I love that.  A sheet of dry wall was set out for the kids to paint their picasso's on.  And, the best party favor, they took home their artwork. 10.  Pinwheel See and Spin ~ This adorable spinning-themed party is perfect for summer or spring.  Over 300 pinwheels were made which adorned the yard, mantle, front door, and flower pots.  Let the guests make their own pinwheels by following this simple step by step tutorial here. 12.  Sew Let's Party ~ Throw your little seamstress in training a sewing themed party using your sewing supplies as decorations.  You can create the homemade invitations with your sewing stash and hang your patterns to make a cute garland. 13.  Shrinky Dink Party Tips ~ Shrinky dinks are a fun and creative way to display artwork.  You can easily make them by using colored pencils to draw the images and designs on the rough side of a shrinky dink sheet.  You can punch a hole in them before you bake them to add to bracelets, tags or necklaces.  Some fun crafts you can make with shrinky dinks are charm bracelets, brooch cards, gift tags, push pins, and buttons. 14.  Tie Dye Themed Party ~ This colorful Tie Dye Themed Party is perfect for older grammar school kids or pre-teens.  There's a "sweets to dye for" dessert table with tie dye cupcakes and other whimsical touches.  The guests will also learn how to make their own tie-dye t-shirts.
