The inspiration for our first very craft night was coin decorated letters. For this project you will need the following supplies:
- One or more paper mache or wooden letters or numbers
- Pennies, nickels, dimes or any other small objects (shells, glass, gems, beads, buttons, etc)
- Acrylic or spray paint in copper (for pennies), silver (for dimes/nickels), or whatever colors goes with the objects you will be using
- Craft glue
- Spray sealant (optional)
- Paintbrush if you're using acrylic paint
Here are a few pictures of how the night went:
Notice the wine! Wine is a very important part Craft Night! We also enjoyed some very yummy vegetarian snacks as well :)
Of course Mojo was there for inspiration
A few of the finished products:
Emily's "SING" turned out awesome!
For my "N" I tried layering my letters for a different effect. However, I decided that I like the single layer of coins much better. Plus, the extra layer of coins make my N want to fall forward with the added weight.
"Vince" will be used in Maria's new baby's room :)
I'd say our very first monthly Craft Night was a success. I really enjoyed making new friends and spending some time with an amazing group of women who encourage each other, laugh together, and CRAFT together. Looking forward to sharing with you what goes down at the next Girls Night In!
