Getting Crafty and Creating Memories

by on ‎08-05-2015 01:11 PM

Some of my favorite moments in life are always the times my home is filled with Nikki and her friends and all of their laughter!

Nikki and her high school friends have all gone off to different colleges this past year but recently spent a night in our backyard creating fun crafts and lots of memories!IMG_0820.JPGThey used clear canning jars from the craft store, glitter, faux flowers, paint, painters tape and Mod Podge...

They were very creative…everyone began by spraying the jars with their school colors or metallic paints. Some of the girls masked off different parts of the jar with the tape and some did a cool two-tone effect…

Once dry, they added glitter to the Mod Podge…IMG_0815.JPG

And also glittered the center of the faux flowers. The results were sparkly flower vases or jars to be used to organize school supplies...IMG_0825.JPG 

Of course the best part of the night was the chance to spend time with friends laughing, eating pizza, and being creative! In a few weeks they will say good bye and head off to college. I will always cherish the nonstop laughter of Nikki and her friends at my house!

 

Do you have an easy back-to-school craft to take to the dorm room?

 

Enjoy the rest of your summer!
