Art Birthday Party

Posted on

Instantly upon asking my soon to be 11 year old daughter what kind of birthday party she wanted this year she knew.  She had her heart set on a art party complete with canvases, easels and lots of color.  I love this idea not only was it great for her age but with a few modifications it would be great for younger and older kids.

 These crazy young ladies had a great time!

Decorations were very simple.  I bought cheap paint brushes at my local hardware store and painted the handles.  Then I attached a ribbon and had a instant banner.

I found a fabric on clearance at Hobby Lobby and let it be the inspiration.   I hung some of the fabric on the curtain rod and made 2  table runners. I then used paper lanterns and  tissue paper pom poms all over.

Each girl had a packet of how to draw and  ideas and inspirations. But the girls were encouraged to paint whatever they wanted.

Everyone had a 11×14 and 8×10 canvas as well as a wooden letter

A colorful surprise awaited the girls when the cake was cut.  They all commented on how they loved all the colors.

About danielle

Hi! I am Danielle Interior designer turned stay at home mother of 3 wonderful kids. I love to do crafts, projects, parties, and photography. With this being said I am a not a pro by any means and have had many many failed attempts. Some funny and some just plain ugly:) I do not care for cooking and house work. My goal is to find a better, faster, more organized way to just get it done so I can spend time with the ones. This is where Pinterest has come into my life. Pinterest and I have a love/hate relationship. I have spent the better part of a day looking up great ideas and never putting them to use. What a waste of time... or is it? Sometimes I find something that rocks and I try it and the world is a better place:) But the worst is when I try something and it’s a big bust. A how did that ever pass for working, did they even read the steps they were giving, or do you think they get a laugh out of my attempt. Many friends have told me that I need to post the bad ones so they don’t bother and let them know the good pins so they can give them a try. So here goes!

    • My husband found a free template online. I tried to find the one he used but didn’t see it and forgot to get back to you. I am so sorry. They ran about $20 for all of them.
