Hey y’all! If you’re looking for something fun you can do to bond with your girlfriends, I’ve got the perfect, low-budget, fun-filled activity for you. Crafts are something all ages like to do, and they can end up becoming quite useful little things for your home. Take a look at my little guide on how to host a craft party night with friends.
Plan for the Crafty and the Non-Crafty
I like to invite all my friends to my get-togethers without limiting the fun to who is and isn’t skilled at certain things. The first thing my best friend always asks me when I host any sort of creative party is, “Is there anything I can do and not ruin there?” and, let me tell y’all. Yes! You can make different crafting stations, so people have options. I like to rank each station with a difficulty level, so my guests know what they get themselves into. For example, I mark the tie blanket station as an easy level one, and the make-your-own-wreath station gets a more difficult level 3. Something my best friend always appreciates is when I purchase a few pre-made felt crafting kits with a full set of instructions to follow and all the pieces in one place. This is still a super fun craft night, just with a bit less pressure on your less crafty friends!
Get Plenty of Refreshments
What’s more fun for a craft party night than your own signature craft cocktail or punch bowl? Curate a fun drink for everyone to enjoy all night long. This way, you can focus on crafting instead of playing bartender all night. Everyone also gets to enjoy a fun and on-theme refreshment to go along with their exciting crafts.
Get a Playlist Going
Prior to hosting a party, I like to take some time to compile a perfect playlist to go along with the tone and mood I’m hoping the night will take on. I hosted a Christmas crafting party recently and chose a carefully selected list of calming and festive songs. Pick out some fun and calming tunes—crafting can get stressful, so opt for more soothing beats.
