5 DIY crafts to make for your friend’s b-day :)

Hey guys, it’s Morgan! Today I’m going to show you some super cute things you can DIY for your friend’s birthday ( or another exciting event! ). I know there is a lot of birthdays this time of year, so I thought this would be the perfect post for today! Without further ado, let’s get started!!!

Candy Card

-The things you need are-

  • A bunch of different kinds of candy bars (more specified in text)
  • Poster board (white)
  • Tape

Start by writing your message (you can make up your own or look for one on Pinterest or online). Whenever you come to a word that sounds similar to a candy’s name, tape it down next to the word. Keep going until you are happy with your message 🙂

2. Locker Candy 🍭

-The things you need are-

– Sticky Notes

– Candies

– Tape

This is super easy and sure to put a smile on your friend’s face. Put sticky notes on the candy saying something related to the candy that also relates to you and your friend. For example: Write “I love you to pieces” on a sticky note and tape it to some Reese’s pieces. Tape these in your friend’s locker and it will be sure to make her Snicker(s) 😆

3. Mini Survival Kit

-The things you need are-

– Travel size essentials ( Such as bandaids, deodorant, snacks, etc.)

– Bento box ( Or another type of container)

– Paper

– Markers

– Tape

– Scissors

First things first, fill the bento box with all your essentials (be sure to pick out essentials that you know your friend will love!). Next, cut the paper to size and write “Emergency Kit” on it with the markers. Tape that on the front. Cut another piece of paper to size and write what items are in the kit and why they are important. Be sure to include a nice note too!

4. Friends Canvas

-The things you need are-

– Rainbow colored crayons

– A hair dryer

– A black permanent marker

– Pictures of you and your friend

– A hot glue gun

– A white canvas

First, hot glue the crayons across the canvas diagonally in a rainbow pattern. Use the hair dryer to melt the crayons and if you’re happy with what they look like, let them dry. After it is done drying, hot glue the pictures over the crayons (diagonally) so you can’t see them anymore. Finally, write, “Some friends are just worth melting for” right above the pictures (again, diagonally).

5. Open when… cards ♥️

-The things you need are-

– Paper

– Envelopes

– Markers

– Pens

– Pencils

– Colored Pencils

First, write some notes for your friend to open in the future like “open when you turn 16” or “open when you can’t sleep”. Then, seal them in cute decorated envelopes!

I hope you guys liked this post, and stay tuned for next week’s post on Friday @5!

Morgan’s Craft Corner: DIY Slime

Hi Guys, It’s Morgan! Today is my first ever craft corner and we are making DIY slime!! This is a classic and easy slime recipe to make + it is super fun to use! So, let’s get started! The things you will need are:

First, pour the glue bottle into the bowl. Stir. Then add a few drops of food coloring. Next add your glitter and mix well. Lastly, add some Tide and if it is still sticky when you stir in the Tide, add more of it. Ta-Da! Now you have amazing slime that is stretchy and fun to play with. Remember, don’t forget to knead the slime and keep it in a container or it most likely will dry out.

Thanks for reading this post and if you would like me to try a craft for you, email me and I will start crafting right away!
