Are you on Pinterest? Do you find yourself pinning beautiful craft projects, but hardly ever seem to have the time to actually make them?? Thanks to the Michael’s “Don’t Just Pin It, Make It Your Own” campaign, I had the opportunity to encourage crafters to at the Bala Cynwyd, PA store event to get their craft on with some Pinterest-inspired craft projects and host an at-home Pinterest party of my own! We made lots of holiday gifts and some beautiful home decor items too — so much FUN!!
If you walked into the Michael’s classroom in Bala Cynwyd, they had lots of Pinterest-inspired craft projects to choose from with full instruction sheets. Customers could shop for their supplies, then come back to the classroom to craft along with us and leave the store with a completed holiday project(s) of their own.
Who wouldn’t want to get crafty after seeing all these festive displays? Michael’s had projects for crafters of every skill level, from holiday tablescapes to stenciled goodie bags!
After the in-store event, I could not wait to host a Pinterest-inspired holiday crafting party of my own!! We crafted the night away making hand-painted ornaments (decorated with glitter, beads, and sequins), and goodie bags with chocolate covered pretzels for teacher and co-worker gifts. I loved watching everyone get so creative with their holiday crafting!!
And what holiday crafting party would be complete without a silly photo booth to show off our crafty creations while having a bit of dress up fun??
A BIG thank you to our friends at Michael’s for providing us with craft and party supplies for our at-home Pinterest party and for hosting the in-store event!
