Get crafty, HH style
Back in 1983, Cyndi Lauper first summarized so well what we all know to be true: Girls just want to have fun. At surface level, we can agree that everyone loves having a good time. But more importantly, Ms. Lauper surely recognized that our female friendships are the backbone of our lives. Here at The Hippie Hobby, we know that some of the most significant relationships we can have are with our female friends. To celebrate the ladies who are there for our best and worst and everywhere in between, get the gals together with these ideas for the hippiest of craft nights!
#1 DIY Floating Candles
Bring the damsels together for a night of de-stress with a Hippie Hobby Floating Candle craft! The girls and you will love trying your hand at candle making, and these versatile candles will soothe your soul even after girls night ends. Martha Stewart shows some great ways to turn floating candles into a centerpiece. While this craft requires materials that likely aren’t lying around the house, order through us at The Hippie Hobby and everything is included. The only thing you’ll be running to the store for is an extra bottle of Pinot.
#2 Hip Lips For Hip Ladies
Your days of searching through pockets and purses for your favorite chapstick will be over after this lip balm-themed girls night. Create your own salve with our lip balm kit, complete with your choice of essential oils.
Purchase several kits for your female friends for a hip lip night! They can either Venmo you back, or together you can all create a potluck of sorts, where others provide food, drinks, etc. The girls will love not only getting to make their own lip balm, but will love the chance to get together.
#3 Cocktail and Craft Night
You love your friends, you love crafts, and we love that you do. And in our gratitude and respect for the many loves of your life, The Hippie Hobby is hosting a Cocktail and Craft Night just for you! Come enjoy light refreshments and discounted cocktails at trendy Paradox Distillery on May 6th. We’ll be creating string art, which is an amazing way to create some amazing home decor. Also, make sure to check out inspiring pictures of string art from Architecture Art Designs here!
Our female friends are simply the best. Whether giving us an ear to listen, a shoulder to cry on, or a voice to laugh with, our girlfriends embody what our souls need. Bringing crafts into Girls Night brings us all together. It also celebrates how much we appreciate and love the best parts of our lives. More important than the Instagram documenting a night of guaranteed fun will be the moment you leave with a smile, thinking how grateful you are for such phenomenal females. As Helen Keller famously said, “I would rather walk with a friend in the dark, than alone in the light.” Create the best of projects and memories by sharing in the walk and journey of life with the ones you love.
