A Very Pinteresting Christmas Day 5: The Party Part 5

A Very Pinteresting Christmas" Linkup with The 4-Crow's began Monday. This week I am taking all five days to tell you about the IRL Pinterest Party that I hosted in my home last Friday night. If I covered the entire party in one post it would be looong and very overwhelming so I am breaking it into pieces throughout this week. Today is Part 5: Door Prizes.

Day 1: Intro & Snapshots
Day 2: Party Food
Day 3: Drinks
Day 4: Crafts
Day 5: Door Prizes

As my friends arrived to the party I handed them one of these:

I found the original design of this card on Pinterest, and decided that I could change it up a bit. Have you used PicMonkey yet? Its my favorite photo editing tool right now, I keep finding new things all the time.  I just added the Pinterest logo, a caret, a Christmas border and some writing and sent it off to Walgreens to have printed on 4x6 photo paper.

While everyone was working on their trees- see yesterday's craft post. I went through the cards. The winners of my door prizes were going to be:

A. The Pinterest addict- the one with the most recent pin.
B. The Pinterest wanna be- the one who had ZERO pins.

We ended up with 3 winners. Kortney the Addict- who pinned 30 minutes before the party. Tamara who had a Pinterest account and has ZERO boards. Kendra who I still want to know WHY she came to a Pinterest Party since she isn't even on Pinterest. Really? She is now...

The winners received one of these: 

Christmas Cupcake Ornaments
I found the orginal pin here. No instructions. So I just made them myself. Later I found another pin that I had pinned, that had instructions that I might try next time. (She used a modge podge/glitter mixture, and also did ornaments instead of styrofoam balls.)

1. Plastic ornaments ( I used the sparkly white ones at Hobby Lobby 1/2 off)
2. Glitter
3. Cupcake liners
4. Elmers Glue
5. Red sparkle balls, Peppermint Balls & Peppermint Discs (Mini Tree section of Hobby Lobby)
6. Hot Glue

What I didn't show you was putting them into the cupcake holder. This was a task, until I figured it out. Elmers does not hold cupcake holders on balls. Hot Glue does. So since you have you glue gun out anyway, that's how you adhere the cherry/candy on top- make sure you put the hanger side up- glue your liner on the ball. Next time this should all come together easier, especially with the modge podge. I'm a messy glitterer. Yes, I think that's a word. LOL!

These ornaments are less that $1 each to make and served also as a centerpiece at my church's "A Christmas Gathering." They are now hanging on my tree and are fabulous. I think I might make more for my daughters birthday in January- party favors?

Be sure to tune in each day this week as I bring you "A Very Pinteresting Christmas" Linkup and if you have any Pinterest inspired activities throughout the week, be sure to grab the above button and linkup your ideas!
