Two years in a row I’ve had girlfriends over for ‘Brunch and Crafts’. If you had told me 10 years ago that this is something I would be doing on my weekends I never would have believed you. Well, I’m not 23 anymore and these sorts of get-togethers are a good ol’ time. Last year there were a bit more mimosas flowing than this year, but that’s what happens when over half the women are pregnant now! Nevertheless, sitting around and catching up with girlfriends is always a good thing to do.
Very simple concept: come over for brunch, bring a craft and it’s supplies, bring a food item to share. I supply the main dish, bread, drinks, etc. It’s a great way to follow through on a project you’ve been meaning to complete or to try something you’ve seen on Pinterest or a magazine.
A little gift for the girls that came:
What to do with the corks from one of our favorite things (wine)? Make coasters, of course! A little hot glue and you have one inexpensive and easy holiday gift. The girl that made these also hot glued corks to magnets to make wine cork magnets.
A different friend used corks to make this cute wreath. She lightly colored them with a translucent white spray paint, hot glued them around a wooden ring, added a couple fake flowers, and wallah! An idea to add something to the center is to hang the letter of your last name in the middle.
Both myself and a friend made these chic & sparkly deer decorations. My friend found an image online and enlarged it to fit the 11 x 14 blank canvases. We then traced the outline of the deer, used paintbrushes to fill it in with mod podge, and then sprinkled glitter on it. I used a chunkier gold glitter and my friend used a finer bronze glitter.
Ladies getting their craft on.
