If you are like me, you have a long list of Pinterest "Pins" and a very short "done" list. I am absolutely in love with all the ideas I get from the website but I was seriously lacking motivation and time to complete any of the 100 crafts I want to complete. Thanks to my friend Cheryl's idea I recently hosted a Pinterest party, it was a totally success and lots of fun!
We each brought an appetizer that was from or inspired by a Pinterest idea and the supplies to make a craft. Everyone ended up making wreaths but it was not planned that way.
From the right: Casey made her own inspired yarn-wrapped wreath, she wasn't quite done when we snapped this pic. Cheryl added flowers to hers and plans to add a monogram letter in the middle. Michelle, Becky and LuLu were inspired by this pin, I love that LuLu added her own flair.
I actually ended up making two different wreaths:
The one on the left I actually made with Dollar Store flowers! The ribbon came from Joann Fabrics. The other wreath was inspired by this pin but I changed it up a little.
I found both my wreath forms at the Dollar Tree. The yarn, flower pedals, and ribbon are all from Joann Fabrics. The flowers I actually made out of leaves from a Hydrangea flower and colored pins. I was not happy with the ribbon used in the original tutorial and couldn't find the right pre-made flower. The flag says "Bare Feet Welcome", it is perfect to welcome spring. I just love how it turned out!
As far as food we had quite a spread, but I forgot to grab a picture of it!
I made this cake, it turned out well but next time I am going to poke a lot more holes it, the actual cake part was a little dry.
Casey made this delicious Thai dish, she actual used low carb noodles so it was even semi-healthy!
Cheryl made this dip, she has made it before & it was so good that I had requested she make it again. It does have mayo in it though so I may try to make a variation without the mayonnaise.
What have you made lately from Pinterest? I love seeing completed Pinterest ideas and recipes and hearing how they turned out so please share!
