Hey party peopleeeeeee! How’s it going today? If you’re here, I’m assuming you’re planning for a celebration.
Well I’ve been known to throw quite a shindig in my time. I’m not a big partier to be honest. Here’s how I roll, personally: I don’t party it up very often, but when I do, I go ALL in!
I commit to food, outfits, decor, all of it. That happens whether I’m in attendance or I’m the hostess. Being the hostess means I’ll go that much further.
It might be crazy, but I just feel like because I don’t do it that often, I should go all out. So I have fun with it!
Anyhoo, that’s what this blog post is all about. It’s about going all out and making an impression at your next celebration. I’ve shared party crafts before and now I’m sharing another important collection: DIY party favors!
On this list are two things – 1) containers to fill with stuff and 2) projects that are the favors themselves. If you make any of the containers, here are some popular things to shove in them:
Small squishy toys
Pop bubble or fidget toys
Mini slime containers
Bracelets and necklaces
There are a lot more too! I’d love to hear your suggestions in the comments.
Take a peek at this list of DIY favors and let me know what you think! There are ideas for every holiday and every type of celebration. Happy crafting!
