Whether you’re hosting a quick craft night with friends or a fun make and take style class, one of these 5 make and take ideas is sure to fill the need you’re looking for!
Crafts nights are one of my all time favorite ways to get to know people. I love seeing people be creative and express themselves even when it seems like what you’re doing is simple and small. I guarantee you, you will see such a wide variety of results from each one of these projects!
Here are 5 fun make and take ideas, perfect for summer!
#1: Wood Block Calendar
- Darice Unfinished Wood Block Calendars
- Darice Acrylic Craft Paint
- Vinyl or Alphabet Stickers
- Paint Brush
Calendars never go out of style. I chose to keep a small part of mine natural wood for a more modern look but depending on the group, you may want to set out fun, bright colors!
#2: Macrame Key Chain
Macrame is back and I’m so glad. Everyone needs a key chain and these turn out so cute and unique! You can mix different colors together and try different knots to get a varied look.
#3: Monogrammed Apron
Who doesn’t love to customize everything? These aprons are a fun and quick project that are useful too. Be careful with the nylon though, make sure you follow instructions carefully about ironing on plastic type materials.
#4: Macrame Hoop Art
More macrame? Yes, please! This piece is much larger but has such a fun impact with the touch of gold. Every home can incorporate a little bit of macrame somewhere.
#5: Floral Hair Pin
This is a perfect little summer project to add a pop of color to your hair. I personally love the white and green but if you’re a more colorful personality you can mix it up with any colors you’d like! Click here for the full floral hair clip tutorial.
