Who doesn’t need an excuse for a girls’ night out? If you think you want to host a girl’s night party, why not invite resin along? Here are some crafts for ladies’ groups that will have everyone asking when you will be hosting the next one!
I know you are anxious to start planning, but I want to make sure you have a few things covered before you start your group crafts for adults (sorry – these aren’t small child appropriate):
1. Make sure you’ve got space. A large banquet table or even plywood on a couple of sawhorses will work in a situation like this.
2. Cover your table with a disposable tarp. A thin plastic painter’s tarp from the hardware store works great. If you don’t want to buy one of those, here are some other surfaces resin won’t stick to.
3. Have the right safety equipment, including protective gloves. Let your guests know ahead of time that you’ve planned a resin project and that they will need to understand resin safety precautions before you get started. Your guests will appreciate your concern for their well-being!
So now that you’ve got your space and guest list, what are some group crafts for adults you can make:
Resin painting ornaments
This works great for any occasion, but Christmastime is especially fun. All you need is a hard shape to serve as your resin base. Clay ornaments work great, but so will wood shapes. Have each guest mix a color of resin, then everyone shares their colors to decorate ornaments. Glitter and metal leaf are also great to have on hand in case your ladies want to give their decorations an extra sparkle. You can see how to do it with these resin Christmas ornaments.
Resin painted cheeseboard
Who wouldn’t want one of these to layout their charcuterie tray with? Start with wooden trays of varying shapes, tape, and a plastic tarp. Then mix and color the resin and get creative! This article explains how to DIY a resin cheeseboard.
What woman wouldn’t love wearing a resin pendant with a picture of a loved one? (And the fur babies count here too.) . Have your guests bring a favorite picture, then size it to fit a bezel pendant. Seal, add resin and sparkles, and you will be all set! Here’s how: Ice resin ideas
Custom outlet and switch plate covers
Why not use ladies’ night crafting as an excuse to redecorate? Instead of committing to a new color of paint, let’s start small. Making custom switchplate and outlet covers is an easy way to give a small space a big pop of color and sparkle. All you need is the resin and molds to get this done. Here’s an idea for switchplate and outlet covers for a galaxy-themed redo.
Ask your ladies to bring a juice can lid and other trinkets for this project. The resin works as a glue to hold this three-dimensional, mixed-media project together. It’s literally the ‘everything and the kitchen sink’ of resin projects. Here’s a DIY magnet idea to get you started.
Which one of these crafts for ladies groups is your favorite? (And by the way, men can do these projects too. *wink*wink* )
