I am thrilled to be announcing the project list and dates for the 2015 Christmas Pinterest Party. Thank you to everyone that voted for your favorite projects, it is such a huge help to know what ya’ll are looking to make and once again, you made great choices!
Lighted Burlap Garland
We will be making these on a 35 count light strand and I will have various Christmas colored and themed burlap, fabric and ribbon. If you were at the Fall Pinterest Party, you were able to see the finished project and it is stunning. There are so many things you could do with this: hang it from a mantel, use it on your tree, lay as a runner down your table…really, it can go anywhere and it will look amazing!
Set of 4 Photo Coasters
These are the going to make the PERFECT gift for grandparents and aunts and uncles and brothers and teachers and …. you get the point. Everyone will be making a set of 4 coaster and you will need to bring your own images. The coasters are 4 x 4 square which is the same size as Instagram photos, so if you Instagram, this would be a perfect way to use your pictures. I know you can print them off at Walgreens, but any pictures will work, you will just need to crop them to fit the coaster. Maybe you have someone in mind who has a favorite team or sport or college or beer or anything…. these would be great for them too! If you print your image on card stock, it will lay much smoother than if it is on regular copy machine paper. I will remind everyone as the party gets closer to bring your images.
Wooden Centerpiece Box
I love this and I think it is a piece that you will be able to easily change to use for every season! You will be given a box that is already assembled and ready to decorate. I will also be pre-staining these projects for you if you would like me to so that you can spend more time crafting and less time waiting on the stain to dry. I will have a variety of twines, ribbons and raffia to tie around your box. I will also have some other embellishments like bells, snowflakes and Christmas pics. The box is pictured with clear bottles, but you could put anything in yours! How cute would this look with some greenery and Christmas bulbs in it. Or some Spanish moss and Easter eggs in the spring? Adorable.
If you would like me to pre-stain your box, inside and outside, please indicate your choice on your RSVP form. You are ALWAYS welcome to stain your own box if you have a special technique or faux finish idea and you could also always dry brush paint over your pre-stained box if you want an even more rustic look.
The supply fee for this party will be $30.00 and that will be for you to make the set of all three projects. Several people at the Fall Pinterest Party asked if they could buy multiple sets of the coaster supplies so they could make more than one set and I will have those available that you can buy in addition to your basic supply set.
*Update* The Christmas Pinterest Party will be held at Lafayette First Church of the Nazarene, 201 Veteran’s Memorial Parkway, across the street from Meijer.
Because we are going to be pre-cutting, assembling and staining the centerpiece boxes a head of time for you, I would love it if you could RSVP as soon as you know for SURE that you are going to be able to come. I certainly understand that emergencies and situations arrive that make you unable to come the day you RSVP’d for but as much as I LOVE this centerpiece project….the last thing I want to do is end up with 17 of them.
Once again, I will be providing the snacks and drinks, you will just need to bring your cute selves, your Pinterest spirit, your images for your coasters and some scissors. Oh…and I would love it if you brought some friends, too! Please feel free to share this with anyone who you think would enjoy a day of crafting, girl talk and food!
Love you. Mean it.
