There ain’t no party like a craft party. If you’re planning to throw a DIY date for your friends, we’ve got all the inspo you need. Even your non-crafty pals will love rolling up their sleeves for these creations!
Super Simple Party Projects
We promise anyone can make these crafts and have a great time doing it.
1. Coolest. Soap. Ever.
Making soap is a fun party craft for everyone, even if you’ve never DIY’d it before — and this is the prettiest soap around. Spend the hour waiting for the soap to cool with drinks and finger food with your guests, or you can speed up the process by popping the bars in the fridge.
2. Easy and Trendy Earrings
Sure, you can buy your jewelry, or you can make killer terrazzo accessories by hand. These earrings are simple to DIY and make an awesome statement piece. Bring on the sculpting clay!
3. No Needles, No Problem
Get #cozy at your craft party and arm knit a throw pillow using giant yarn. You definitely don’t have to be an avid knitter (or even a knitter at all) to crush this project — all you need is your own two hands! Just make sure your guests have plenty of space; this pillow is LARGE.
4. Give Your Succulents a Cozy Home
The best thing about this clay creation? It air dries, so there’s no baking or fancy kiln required (which makes it a perfect party project). Not to mention, you and your guests probably have most of the supplies already, so it’s totally budget-friendly.
5. Make Your Key Fob More Fab
A little color goes a long way, especially on something you use every day. These keychains are sooo easy to make — your guests can easily whip up one for themselves and one (or two) more for gifting!
6. Stitch the Rainbow
DIY designer jeans are the best designer jeans (it’s a fact). Stock up on embroidery floss and thread your needle — and if you’re not an embroidery wizard, don’t sweat. You only need to know one simple hand stitch to rock this look.
7. Dish It Out
For something quick (but cute), make a clay jewelry dish. The cool marbled look comes from rolling and twisting two colors of polymer clay together, and the luxe gold rim is just paint. So easy!
For the (Slightly) Craft-Ambitious
These projects are newbie-friendly too, but you and your friends might have to try out a few new skills. Go for it!
8. Build a Bouquet That’ll Never Wilt
Arranging flowers is so much more satisfying when the blooms will last forever. Get your friends together and learn to make roses, peonies and air plants — and how to put them together for an ah-mazing forever bouquet.
9. A Quilt, But Make It Mini
Call ’em coasters. Call ’em wall art. Whatever you call them, these mini quilts are super fun to create. Plus if you’ve got fabric scraps on hand, you’re basically party-ready.
10. No-Sew Clutches for the Whole Squad
This glam project is quite a bit simpler than it looks. (It starts from a ready-made plain minaudière case, so all you have to do is add fabric!) And there’s absolutely no stitching required.
