How to Host A Pinterest Party

Here's a great idea for a girls night in... hosting a Pinterest party! It's a fun way to get friends together to eat, gab, and craft.

Who doesn't love Pinterest? And who doesn't pin crafts they'll probably never make? Well, here's a way to fix that!

So how do you throw a Pinterest party? Read on...

ACTIVITY

You and your friends create a group craft board on Pinterest, like these below, where everyone  adds pins of crafts they'd like to make.

You can do this part one of two ways...

OPTION 1 -- The host picks one or two simple crafts off of the group board and purchases the supplies so everyone can make them during the party.

OPTION 2 -- Each guest picks a craft off of the board she'd like to make, and brings enough supplies for 4 guests, including herself. Names are pulled out of a hat to decide which craft goes with which guest. By the end of the evening, every guest gets to make 4 crafts. **Remind your guests that the crafts they choose should not take more than a half hour to complete, or you'll be there all night. :)

FOOD
Make the party a "Pinterest potluck" and asks your guest to bring a dish they found on Pinterest.

PARTY FAVORS

If the host is providing the craft supplies, I recommend each guest bring a bag filled with craft supplies and instructions for one craft. These bags are exchanged at the end of the night so everyone goes home with a new craft. Or if the host isn't providing the craft supplies for the party, I recommend the host pick a simple craft, buy supplies and wrap them up with instructions to send home with each guest .

MY NEWEST CRAFT RECOMMENDATION

Here's a simple craft I found on Pinterest (that I've just started), and that would make a perfect Pinterest party craft.

Using a Pebeo Porcelaine pen (they come in a bunch of colors), draw on a ceramic mug or plate with any design or text you'd like. Then bake for 30 minutes in a 300 degree oven, let cool, and the marker becomes permanent, even dishwasher safe.

If you throw a Pinterest party, please add it to our site. I'd love to show it off!

What is a Cricut?

A bunch of users have mentioned using a Cricut to add details to their parties.  So of course I had to ask, what is a Cricut?

It turns out it's a pretty cool electronic cutting device to cut out shapes and letters for scrapbooking and craft projects.

Here's what one looks like.  No computer necessary.

They seem to range in price from about $100 to $350, but where it can get even pricier is when you add in the cost of the cartridges you need to make the cool shapes.  These run anywhere from $25 to $80 each.

So the question is... is it worth it?

And the answer is... if you are a "crafty" person, yes!   There's really nothing like it.  Take a look at some of the things you can do with a Cricut.

In fact, they even have a new food Cricut for cake and cookie decorating.  Check out this cake.

Kind of cool, right?
