Last year when I had my overnight visit at Hope, my host and her roommate began raving about “Pinterest Night” which was going to be happening in a few weekends. I didn’t know what Pinterest Night was, but I knew I wanted to do it. I’m a bit of a crafty person, so this is quite fitting.
And so there it was on move-in day, written out on the Student Activities Committee’s plans for the fall semester this year again: PINTEREST NIGHT. I was overjoyed. I had to wait, like, a month though, BUT it has finally come. That’s right, Pinterest Night happened.
It got real crafty.
The SAC had various crafts that you could do: canvas art, mason jars, bracelets, cards, and photo frames. I made two cards, a canvas, and a mason jar! Here’s a look at mine and my roommates crafts.
With the mason jar, I plan on either keeping my change in it (for donuts, of course!), or little strips of paper with individual memories or quotes that I want to remember from this year! I’ll use the cards as birthday or thank you cards for people I know here, and the canvas is already hanging in my dorm!
You can do these at home too! If you like doing things like this, all of these are really easy!
For the mason jar: You need a mason jar (obviously), some scrapbook paper, and ribbon or burlap. All you do is cut the scrapbook paper to fit inside the mason jar and voilà, you’re pretty much done. Tie your ribbon around it and add some paper to the top and it’s complete.
For the cards: All you need is fun scrapbook paper, scissors, and glue. You can layer them really anyway you want. Mine weren’t very intricate, as you can probably see, but it would be fun to add stickers that say things like thank you and happy birthday!
For the canvas: You need a canvas, paint, brushes, and (if you want to) peel-off stencil letters. Stick the letters on the canvas first, then paint over them. Peel off when you’re done!
Pinterest night is just one of the many fun things that the SAC does! I’m so happy they brought it back this year so that I could go to it!
