I'll start with a "tutorial" on the easiest craft ever. Really, a monkey could do this. I created these chargers for a Christmas party I hosted. But, I plan on using them for other occasions. Versatility: a best friend!
All you need is:
silver platters from the dollar store, a can of chalkboard paint, and a paintbrush.
step 1: paint on a thin layer of chalkboard paint.
step 2: let it dry.
step 3: repeat steps 1 and 2, about 4 times.
step 4: after your final layer, let dry for 24 hours before writing on.
Also from the dollar store, I bought clear glass dinner plates. Write a phrase on each plate, and put your glass plate on the charger! Adorable.
How cute for "it's a girl/boy" or "so and so is 30!"
Here's a few more decor items I used for my husband's office party. I call this decor "Dr. Suess meets charming."
I found these cups at the dollar store as well. I know. "They're ridiculous" is what you're thinking, but I couldn't pass them up!
Give me some credit,I did remove the crazy straws!
My center piece was a mason jar filled with Christmas ornaments and embellished with cute partridges (two of these).
And the whole shabang...
