Se7en Tea Party Crafts…

October 31st, 2010 · 13 Comments

Well when you are having A Virtual Tea Party you need to have a couple of crafts at hand…

  1. A Tea Party Paper Hat: A tea Party isn’t a tea party without a hat!!! Paper is your friend, it’s a lot more malleable than we think!!!Take large pieces of paper, bigger than your child’s head and decorate them any way you like. We did this simply and left two small girls with the markers while we did school.

    Once they are done decorating pop the papers on their head, we used two layers for strength.

    Crunch the paper around their heads and then use clear tape and tape around their heads.

    Then the hat should be hanging in their eyes!!! Just fold the edges upwards and you are done!!!

  3. Sew A Tea-Pot Bag: Felt is your friend for beginner sewing, it is pretty forgiving!!! Also you needn’t sew this project, craft glue will do the trick just as well. We used felt and buttons and a shoelace for the handle. Start by cutting out your two tea-pot shapes, and one handle and one spout. We decided to decorate our tea-pot with flowers, so we cut out a couple of flowers as well.

    We started by sewing the flowers on, we just popped a button in the center of each flower and stitched them on.

    Finally, we placed our shoelace around the edge of the back, just inside the seam. Pinned it all together and slowly stitched our way around. Making sure to catch the shoelace in one or two spots.

    And you are done!!!

  5. Teaspoon Shakers: We began by drawing on plastic teaspoons with sharpie markers…

    We put some popcorn kernels into one of the spoons.

    And glued the spoons together to make shakers.

  6. A Mini Tea-Pot Pinata: You can really make any size Pinata, but we made mini-ones because they dry so quickly… You will need small balloons (we used the water bomb balloons), tissue paper torn into little strips and a small amount of wall paper glue.
  7. DSC_0018

    Cover your balloon in wall paper glue and then strips of tissue paper, keep on layering the paper until it is well covered, you can put on a couple of layers, we put on about three.

    For the handle and the spout we just made a roll of paper pushed it flat and molded it on to paper covered balloon and left it to dry overnight.

    Trim the rough edges and you are done!!!

  8. Teaspoon Flowers: We cut some flowers and let those little ones lose with the watercolors, it seems to be their latest full time occupation!!!

    We smothered our spoons in glue and pompoms…

    And poked the spoons through the center of the flowers – ta da!!!

    Stick the card onto the the teabag label… and you are done!!!

  12. A Teaspoon Collection: This was the ultimate afternoon of delight… First you will need some take-away tea-spoons and sharpie markers to draw on them. Then add almost anything else you can think of to the table… little fabric scraps, pompoms, pipe cleaners, feathers, in fact any scrappy things and merry sticking and gluing. We had spoon beasts, spoon bugs, spoon aliens, spoon monsters, spoon families…. just about spoon anything you can think of!!!

    […] Se7en created some great Tea Party crafts.  I really like the idea of turning aspoon into a colorful flower.  Have the kids paint a big flower on paper, cut it out and make a slit in the middle for a plastic spoon.  Slide the spoon through the paper and glue some fuzzy balls to the scoop of the spoon.
