    DIY “Dos” for the PI Party Hostess with the Most-est

    You like hosting your friends for holiday gatherings or spontaneous fun.

    We enjoy helping you make said gatherings even more memorable.

    We think this is the start of a beautiful relationship. That said, here are three simple DIY projects that will help propel you to new hostess heights!

     

    Seashell Tea Light Favor

    2013-06-18-mailloux_diy_bridal_shower_party_favor_seashell_tealight

    You’ll need:

    • Large seashells
    • Spray-on paint primer
    • Spray paint (we recommend gold)
    • Tea light candle set
    • Aluminum foil
    • Candlewick (cut into ¼-inch pieces)
    • Scissors
    • Card stock paper in white (or color of choice)
    • Gold metallic pen
    • Hole-punch or knife
    • Twine

    Directions:

    • Spray both sides of each shell with a single coat of primer. Then spray the shell gold. Let dry.
    • Place one tea light (wax only) in the center of each upside-down shell. Wrap the shells in foil, and then bake at 200°F for 10 minutes (or until wax has melted).
    • Remove shells from the oven, placing one wick in the center of each shell—allow them to set.
    • Using a scissors, cut the card stock paper into small circles. Write your message with the metallic pen prior to making a hole in the paper with a hole-punch or knife.
    • Tie the twine around each shell (in the same way that you would a gift box), attaching the tag.
    • Bask in the compliments that are coming your way.

    Dinner Party Name Tag Napkins

    You guys, this one is so simple. Think: almost no work. Plus, if you have any twine left over from your party-favor creations (see above), you can just call this recycling and rack up some extra karma points (we’re always lookin’ out for you).

    All you need to do is cut out a few teeny-tiny paper tabs, calling upon your very best cursive skills (you know, that thing they taught us in elementary school, before tablets) to write each guest’s name. Wrap a piece of twine around each napkin, threading it through the name tag, and then tie it all together (literally) by attaching a decorative accent to the bow. Here are the options we had in mind:

    • Dried flowers
    • Leaves
    • Herbs

    DIY Slate Cheeseboard

    Serve up some envy with this super-trendy DIY cheeseboard, which allows you to label all the goodies you’ll be setting out (talk about useful if you have any friends with food allergies!).

    Here’s what you’ll need:

    • Slate tile (you can get free samples at tile and flooring stores)
    • Olive oil
    • 4 adhesive felt circles
    • Chalk

    Directions:

    1. Really put some elbow grease into scrubbing that slate clean with antibacterial soap. Let it dry.
    2. Coat the surface with a generous amount of olive oil. Scrub and rinse the slate once more, followed by a final coat of olive oil. In case you were wondering, the purpose of the oil is to create a barrier between the slate and the yumminess that you’re serving up.
    3. Apply one adhesive felt circle to each of the four corners on the bottom the slate.
    4. Grab your chalk and have some fun with it!
