craft party

Yesterday I invited two of my friends over for a mini crafting party to make a few cute things for our dorm rooms. It was dreary and rainy outside, so it was the perfect afternoon for crafts. We made rose tealights, decoupaged coasters, and little floral magnets.

rose tealights
I absolutely love the little rose tealights we made. We took apart fake flowers and glued them around a battery tealight. I found this wonderful idea and tutorial at Smart School House.

We painted flower cabochons and made them into small magnets to hang on our fridge.

These are the tealights and coasters that I made.

Ashley made an adorable vintage postcard-looking coaster!

I can't wait to decorate my dorm with the things we made!

It was so much fun doing all the crafts with my friends, and it was a great way to get together before we all move away. Even if you're not heading off to college in a few months, plan a girls day with all your friends and make some of those pinterest projects that I know you've been meaning to do. ;)

Have fun crafting. ♥
