"Have you ever had a craft party?" asks blogger Jenny Batt from Hank & Hunt. "These types of parties are popping up more and more, and are a great idea for a holiday open house. What better way to grab a moment with your friends than to host an open afternoon, where they can stop by unannounced and pop in for drinks and delicious treats and get a head start on their holiday decorating?"
See the photos from Jenny's party that she threw with the help of Martha Stewart at The Home Depot, and start planning your own gathering.
The craft of choice is a hanging illuminated star. Required materials for this project are the Martha Stewart Living color light set, white cable ties, and wooden dowels.
"Creating a simple illuminated star to hang outside (or in) is a great quick DIY that even noncrafters can participate in. Organize your supplies and tie with pretty ribbon."
Once the star is assembeled, attach the Martha Stewart Living color light set along the wooden dowels and fasten with cable ties. Make sure the light plug is at the end of one of the star's points.
