Chances are you’re a Pinterest loving mom who, like me, never ends up getting to many of the projects you pin. See my extensive library of pins on my Crafts and DIY board. However, I’ve probably only done about 5 of those projects. When I compare my love of crafting to how much time I actually spend crafting, it makes me sad. Enter Home Made Luxe and my idea to create your own craft night was born!

When you create your own craft night, you’re really killing two birds with one stone. On one hand, you’re investing in yourself, which is top notch self-care. On the other hand, you’re spending time on a hobby for yourself, something that most parents admit they don’t do enough.

3 Easy Tips to Create Your Own Craft Night

1. Subscribe to Home Made Luxe

Home Made Luxe is a subscription box that sends you a new home decor project every month! If you’re a Pinterest loving but Pinterest challenged mom, this is totally the one thing you need to create your own craft night. Not only is it crazy affordable—have you looked at the prices at the craft store lately?!—but all the tools and supplies you’ll need are included.

Plus, Home Made Luxe includes directions in every box and even has video tutorials on their website.

While you wait for your first box to arrive, follow along with Home Made Luxe on Instagram, Facebook, and Pinterest. You can even get sneak peeks at next month’s craft! Skipping a month whose project is not your cup o’ tea is easy and totally free, too.

2. Create a Central Craft Space

If you’re more of an introvert like me, create your own craft night as a solo adventure. In this case your craft space may end up being a desk equipped with Netflix, an organizer for all your supplies, and lots of room to spread out and tinker in peace. To me, that sounds like heaven.

I love my kids and all, but sometimes I just want to craft without also having to supervise and instruct.

If you’re looking to create your craft night as a social playdate for moms, designate a craft space for a group. For example, the dining room table or a folding card table you pull out into the middle of your living room are great options. Further, a converted buffet, cube shelving, or rolling craft cart are all good options for storage in between craft nights.

“We love our monthly girl’s night craft time. We make a gorgeous home decor project, eat, drink, chat and laugh. We look forward to getting away from the kids and just enjoying some girlfriend time.” – A Group of Coworkers in Austin, Texas

And like I mentioned earlier, Home Made Luxe sends all the supplies for each month’s project! So, you really only need space to sit and create.

3. Indulge with All the Fixings

Whether alone or with a gaggle of your mom friends, treat yourself to all the fixings. Pour yourself a glass of wine, fix up a nice cheese and cracker plate, and grab a bowl of your favorite munchies. I like to have something on in the background, too, so I don’t tune into the noises of crazy children outside my door. Most often that’s music in the background or an episode of Chopped or Adam Ruins Everything.

I also love to throw a handful of yummy brine-y things into my food processor to make my favorite olive tapenade! It’s delicious on Sociables, though my mother-in-law prefers the really fancy thin crackers.

Quick Olive Tapenade:

  • 1 1/2 cups pitted, brine-cured olives
  • 1 teaspoon anchovy paste
  • 3 tablespoons capers rinsed
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons coarsely chopped parsley
  • 3 cloves garlic sautéed in 1/4 cup olive oil
  • 3 tablespoons lemon juice (from 2 lemons, or, you know, the bottle in your fridge)
  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper

  1. I would love a string art kit, they looks like a lot of fun to do and they look cool when you are done!

  2. That is really a hard choice but I would have to say a craft kit to make a weathered wood board for my home with a saying on it.

  3. always been interested in soap making, so the gem stone soap making would be my first “want to do”

  4. Love the idea of having a monthly craft night, need to give it a try and I absolutely love the State Heart String Art!!

  5. Doing a new craft every month so even on not so good days I am still learning growing brain cells.

  6. I love this idea of a craft box — I want to do more crafts and this is such a super way to do it. I would love to have a box with mosaics!

  7. Ahhh I love this idea!! What a fun night to organize with friends…I love making my own crafts but never get to do it very often. This is a great excuse to do it more often 🙂

  8. I’ll keep these tips in mind and use it to make craft time with little ones who visit fun! Thank you.

  9. I am always open to learning a new craft. I have been working on felt ear bud holders lately.

  11. For the giveaway… if I could receive one craft kit, I’d like it to be a card-making kit.

  12. Hi… the craft box looks lovely…. I am a little nervous because I am not receiving my original Oxford Momma pampering boxes, and your Facebook page has no posts between June 22 and December 9. The boxes were so wonderful, a high point for me each month!

    1. That’s exactly what got me into home decor crafting! I use to do little crafty things like making soaps and bath salts and candles and embroidery. Then we bought our house, and we had a baby. When you’re broke you get crazy crafty, lol!
