Where my party people at?! Wave your hands in the air like you just don’t care! Whoa, sorry. I got a little carried away there. But guess what?! Halloween is on a Saturday this year which means you can throw an epic Halloween party. I’ve teamed up with a fab group of bloggers to bring you tons of awesome ideas to help you plan a wicked fun night. I’m sharing a fun idea to keep your guests entertained and stylish. Set out a DIY jewelry making station! So check out my post then check out all the other amazing ideas! Plus wine. Lots of wine. Duh. Given the fact that I really don’t love this holiday, there is little chance that I will actually ever host a legit Halloween party. But when I host people for a get together, I like to give them an activity, like a make-your-own jewelry area. This activity would be super casual and low pressure. I don’t like to force my party guests to participate in things they don’t want to. There is nothing worse than being at a party where the host is corralling unwilling guests to mingle and play silly games. So if a guest wants to make a party favor/ awesome macabre accessory, cool. And if they don’t. No biggie. To create a make your own jewelry station, all you need to provide is some simple materials and jewelry tools, like black cording or a thin gauge chain link plus some decorative beads, like these skull beads. Simple jump rings can finish off a necklace or you can use this easy knotted technique for creating a bracelet. Party guests can come and go as they please and make a few fun accessories.
This activity doesn’t have to be expensive or hard to put together and most supplies can be found at your local craft store. It also doesn’t need to take up a large area or take prime party real estate. A platter and some small bowls are a simple way to lay out the supplies. I loved these colorful skull beads since they weren’t too creepy and the muted colors went really well with the rest of the black and white party decor.
Any leftover supplies can be used at your next party. When paired with a different color palette and playlist this activity easily works with all kinds of parties! And can we talk for a second about how cute that tray is? It’s from Atelier Boemia. It’s ceramic and is the perfect size for party food, jewelry making supplies and so much more!
