Surprise Party- DIY Centerpieces

This past weekend was my parent’s 60th Surprise Birthday Party.

I decided to make my own decorations instead of buying a bunch of flower bouquets that would eventually be thrown away after.

I started out by collecting a bunch of class bottles and jars (which is actually already one of my hobbies).  I then gathered all of my crafts supplies (ribbons, papers, and fake flowers) and I took out my hot glue gun and  decorated each jar with an assortment of materials.  I included a piece of Japanese printed origami paper on each jar as well.

I also made paper flowers on sticks to put into each jar.  I made these flowers by taking strips of paper and folding them like an accordion. I then taped the ends of the strip together and pushed the paper down in the center and glued it with my hot glue gun.  Unlike real flowers, these flowers can be kept forever!

I used some real flowers as well by taking one bouquet of flowers and cutting their stems and then sticking them into grapevine wreaths.  These can be hung up after and the flowers will dry naturally leaving you with a beautiful dried flower wreath.

Pictures from Eikaiwa Afternoon Tea: Fall Crafts

Yesterday I held Eikaiwa Afternoon Tea: Fall crafts. We all enjoyed english conversation over tea and snacks.

I served amazake cookies, vegan rasberry scones and shiokoji mushroom mini-sanwiches. Oh and of course English tea!

 

 

We made natural soy candles and autumn candle holders using recyclable material.

Thank you all for coming! I am looking forward to next week’s Eikaiwa Afternoon Tea: Thanksgiving Special.


DIY Chalk Paint

I decided that I really wanted to change the look of this table.  Black really doesn’t go well in our apartment and this table is getting really old.  I wanted to give it an antique/distressed look so after some research I found out that I needed chalk paint.  But when I went to the store to buy it I found out that it was really expensive!  So I decided to make chalk paint by myself by mixing flat paint with with un-sanded grout. After that I just sanded the edges and put a finishing wax on it.  It only took about an hour for the whole project!

 

Chalk paint:

1 cup flat pain: 1 tbsp Un-sanded Grout
