DIY Fun: Party Craft Idea

A few months ago, my daughter convinced me to allow her to have a sleepover party for her 11th birthday. I was reluctant, but ultimately gave in knowing this was our last year in this school district and she was moving on to middle school and new changes soon.  (Reminder:It’s not about you, Mom). 

So, I decided that the best way to get through the party was to keep them engaged. I bought some age appropriate games, decided on food and beverages, and came up with a DIY craft idea that I thought the girls would love.

This is a spin-off idea that I used from a previous DIY project I did for my cousins with the exception of the items used to decorate. Either way, it was a hit. 

Each girl chose a bucket and sticker style.

I found these tins at Hobby Lobby
Any craft store carries these stickers. The more the better.

Once she finished decorating the outside, she filled the tin with decorative paper.

Then it was time to add the gifts. Add whatever fits the party’s theme or the guests’ style and/or character. 

They had a great time doing this activity. And, I must admit, I enjoyed watching them create their personalized tins. 

Here are some of the final creations..

Hope you have as much fun as we did making these!!
