Preparing for Holiday Craft Night







Time really flies!!! Tomorrow is our traditional HOLIDAY craft night, yay! It's also a time for gift exchanging with fellow crafters, YAY to that too!

Sure to be a very long night full of fun and frivolity, hopefully we'll also see some fabulous finished crafts. Last time we made fall themed crafts and only went until 3a.m. The ending time usually depends on the number of crafts and the level of difficulty. Since there's a bit of eating, drinking and being merry involved, we like to get the most difficult crafts done first. ;)

I don't have all the pieces and parts put together yet, but pictured above is the idea for my craft. We're making SPARKLY BRACELETS for ourselves and friends. It's an easy one, so this can be done toward the end of the night.

These are made using the new Cousin Corporation elastic cord that I found at Walmart last weekend. LOVE it! I don't know why I didn't get the other colors when I was there, so guess who's going to Walmart tomorrow? Yep! :) Here are a few other colors available. They come 4 colors to a pack for $2.50. The length of each color is 1.7 ft. SO AWESOME!







Using ribbon clasps and a variety of beads or sparkly chain, I'm sure we'll create lots of original designs full of sparkle!!

If you're doing a holiday craft event with your friends or family, please share the details or a link to your blog post about it. We're always looking for new ideas!!
