christmas craft party | you are my fave

The holidays are definitely my favorite time to make so I decided to force my friends into enjoying it too by having a little crafting get together. Sure it was unseasonably warm for trying to get into the spirit, and there were lots of babies at our feet, and I failed to remember it was a morning party before I had made an entire table of desserts – but I like to believe my guests had a good time. Here’s the rundown of our craft date making festive branch trees:

We started by painting inexpensive clay pots with Martha Stewart Living Metallic Glaze in medallion. Everything’s better metali-cized.

After placing a foam flower frog in the bottom of the pot, the branches were arranged. I bought the branches at a floral store but they could easily be foraged. To make sure things stay put, a layer of sand was poured on top. The pinecones covered it up nicely.

The best part was decorating the branches once they were set. I had a whole slew of ornaments from the Martha Stewart Merry Metallics line that added just the right amount of sparkle.

Look at that beaut. Project holiday complete.

Of course I can’t forget about the black and white spread. The treats that I included were:
whoopie pies
– mini chocolate chip cookies
– dark and white chocolate peanut butter cups
– brown buttered rice krispie treats
puppy chow
black and white cookies
vanilla macarons
– coconut macaroons

For quick decorations, I hung up rolls of crepe paper (which I originally saw in Martha Stewart Weddings) and had striped mylar balloons blown up.

There you have it, now go throw a holiday craft party of your own.
