About 2017-18 Birthday Parties

General Policies:

At Do*It*Yourself Crafts, it is important for us that YOU have the easiest, stress-free party!

We offer several options for parties that work with all budgets and ages. A few reminders to help make your party a success:

Our basic party package is $175 for your first 10 guests. Each additional guest is $16 per person.
A $75 non-refundable deposit is necessary to book your party. This price is applied to the cost of your party.
Unless arranged for ahead of time, all parties should be “drop-off”. Please let us know how many non-painting family members will be in attendance.

Only tie-dye t-shirts and canvases go home the day of the party. Otherwise, the projects will be ready for pickup by the party host within 5-7 days after the party (sometimes that time could extend; our staff will notify you if longer than 7 days). The order will be packaged together in one bag, easy for pick-up. We will write the name of each of the painters on the outside of his/her wrapped piece. Individual guests may not pick up separately.

We accept Cash, MasterCard, Visa, Discover and American Express. Personal checks are not accepted.
You may arrive 5-10 minutes prior to the event to set up. There is a table in the back of the room for your use, and decorations on that table are allowed, however we do not allow pinatas, confetti, anything on the walls or anything that would cause harm to your guests or our staff or would prevent us from providing a clean space for the next event. To avoid disappointment, please contact us prior to your party to discuss your plans.

A typical party runs as follows:

- As your guests arrive, our staff will check them in and guide them to the options you have chosen for the party. While other guests arrive they may decorate our chalkboard. The kids will decorate white bags that will be used to package their crafts after they are finished.
- We will provide instruction to the artists, hand out their pieces and assist where needed.
-After about 45-60 minutes, our staff will clean up the craft, clearing the tables for refreshments.
-The last half hour of the party is for food, drink and fun! You may bring in cake or other food. Please note we have some rules about food for kids parties.
- Our staff is happy to help you in any way possible – including handing out drinks, passing out cake or cupcakes, or anything else we can do to make your party a great time!
Our team is experienced at running parties within the allotted time. Introduction of additional entertainment (i.e., clowns, face painters, etc) will reduce or eliminate time for other planned activities, such as cake, presents or painting. To avoid disappointment, please contact us prior to your party to discuss your plans.

2017-18 Birthday Parties
Pottery Party
Pottery Party
Everyone creates a wonderful keepsake. This is a great party for kids of all ages. We have a wide and ever-changing selection of “Critters and Collectibles” to pick from, or you can choose either a bowl painting party or a plate painting party. Yes, they are food safe! For the bowls and plates, we can make it even more special by using our Cricut to add sticker letters. Once the kids have finished painting, we’ll remove the sticker and you’ll have a perfect personalized plate. You’ll love it!

  • 1 1/2 hours of party and pottery fun
  • Party host
Party package is $175 for your first 10 guests. Each additional guest is $16 per person.

Glass Fusing Party
Glass Fusing Party
Great for older kids (9 and up), glass fusing is something new and different to try. Please note, the birthday child can be no younger than turning 9, and no guests can be younger than 8 years old.

For glass fusing, you can pick from a suncatcher (4x6") or a suncatcher letter. In each, the kids will learn about basic glass cutting (and everyone will be an expert by the end of the party!) and create their item.

Tie-Dye Party
Tie-Dye Party
Groovy! What’s old is new again, as kids are crazy for tie-dye. We use a nearly mess-free method to create this old favorite. Everyone loves to see the shirts unveiled at the end of the party, and this project goes home with the kids the day they make them. We are sure to include instructions for the parents! We make short-sleeved t-shirts come alive with color that everyone loves.

We offer two sizes for shirts: Youth Medium and Youth XL. We find that Youth Small shirts do not spin up well, and the size difference between the Large and XL isn't enough to warrant keeping extra inventory. If you need adult sizes, there is an additional fee, and you should tell us in the notes. An Adult Small and a Youth XL are the same size.
  • 1 1/2 hours of party and tie-dye fun
  • Party host
Our basic party package is $175 for your first 10 guests. Each additional guest is $16 per person.

Clay Party
Clay Party
From start to finish, party-goers will do it all: create, decorate and paint a clay item - all in the same party! This project does require extra time to be completed in the kiln - please allow two weeks before pick-up.

Please note that this party is better for older kids - the birthday child should be no younger than turning 9, and no guests at the party should be younger than 8.

Options include several choices – a “taco fish”, a small plaque, a "poof plate" or a clay cross. This is a great party for kids who are ready to create from start to finish!
