One of the best parts of hosting a Crafternoon is choosing what you and your guests will make! Here’s our top five recommend summer crafts – perfect for a sunny Crafternoon! Get templates for all these crafts as well as all the info and inspiration you need to host your Crafternoon by requesting your Crafternoon kit here.

1. Tissue paper flower crown

Mind Crafternoon

Ideal for a summer celebration, these gorgeous flower crowns only need tissue paper, glue and a plastic hair band to make. Soon to be seen on all of your guests’ Insta feeds.

2. Tassel garland

Mind Crafternoon

This DIY tassel garland adds a beautiful pop of colour to a summer celebration, string it up like bunting at a garden party in at home. We also love that you can experiment with other materials, like using scraps of fabric to make the tassels instead.

3. Pinwheel

Mind Crafternoon

This seaside classic is perfect for your Crafternoon if you’re going to be inviting little ones too. They’re easy enough to make with children but also look fabulous in flower pots to decorate your garden.

4. Happy jar

Since you’ll be inviting your favourite people to your Crafternoon, a happy jar is a perfect thing to make! All you need is an empty jar to fill with positive messages, memories or inspirational quotes, then swap them at the end to take home for whenever you need a little boost!

5. Decoupage journal

Mind Crafternoon

It’s easy to make a plain notebook into something really special and unique. Mind has templates to create beautiful bird decoupage designs with your Crafternoon guests. Then all that’s left is to decide what to use it for – gratitude journal? Gardening notebook? You might need to make more that one!

If you host your own Crafternoon, make sure you tag us in your pics using #molliemakers and #crafternoon on Instagram, Twitter and Facebook. We can’t wait to see what you create for this fab charity.
