6 Cheap & Easy DIY Holiday Party Ideas | Tay from Millennial Moms

– I could probably make 100
mugs with quotes just from Elf! (bouncy acoustic guitar) (kissing sound) Hey guys, welcome to Millenial Moms! I’m Tay. You guys can see
me here every Tuesday! This week we are focusing
on holiday parties, and I love throwing holiday parties, and if you love throwing holiday parties, you’ll probably know that they
are a little bit expensive. So one thing I wanted to
show you guys how to do was how to create a couple
things that are not expensive but still make your guests feel special. Make your party fancy. Everyone wants a fancy party sometimes. We all don’t have a fancy budget. All right guys, so our
first easy, super easy DIY, is just to make your plates fancy. Now, you can go to the Dollar Store and get a Dollar Store plate. I just took my plates
and I just gave the rim a little design. Now I was a little wary
of using Sharpie on glass or anything like that
’cause I was convinced the Sharpie would come off. I really was. It works really good on the ceramic, and it does not come off. I could rub this all day long, and it’s not gonna come off
but the metallic Sharpies, they really do a good job of staying on. Get some platters that you
can put your plates on top of. They have platters at the Dollar Store, but I got these at Hobby Lobby. They’re originally two
dollars and they were 50% off, so you just store them for Christmas, and that’s your one-time investment. But if you guys are like my family, by the end of the night
we get kind of tired, and we want to cuddle
up and get in our PJs, or just kind of watch a movie. But, the best thing to
have is a nice, warm cup of hot chocolate. I just wanted to make mugs
that had cute sayings on them from my favorite Christmas movies. Probably gonna be making
a ton more of these so “The best way to spread Christmas Cheer “is sing loud for all to hear.” That’s one of my favorite. And then this one says,
“It came without packages.” I love the whole moral of The Grinch, and just what it stands for. Another way to make your
guests feel fancy and special is to make their glasses a
little bit more personalized. Now I went ahead and did Mr.
and Mrs. for my husband and I, my husband and me. My husband and me. And I’m gonna tell you right
now, before you guys do this, metallic Sharpies are kind
of a pain when you’re writing on clear glass. If you do the Sharpie like
I did, six layers of it, and then realize it’s not really working. I just went ahead and used
some metallic gold paint to go over what I had already done. What do you guys find if you use Sharpie? What’s a good trick for you
guys to get it to stick on? This, it definitely sticks on. It doesn’t come off. However, it’s just kind of finicky. And I just wanted to give you
guys a little tip on making a platter like so. This platter I’ve made
before for my kids’ birthdays with just different color plates. I like the gold. I got this at the Dollar Store, and then this is just a candle holder I got at the Dollar Store
and spray painted it gold. Use E6000 to glue this together. The final thing we’re
gonna do is just make a little name box, and I got
these boxes at Hobby Lobby for 50 cents. And then just some cute Washi tape, and these were in the sticker section, and then I just got a bunch of stickers and put everyone’s name on it. You can just pop in new ones, and then I would also recommend
keeping a bunch of extra ones of these, and then a
bunch of your stickers handy on the side so that if someone pops over, because I don’t ever want
to say “No” to someone if they need somewhere
to go for the holidays. (lively music) – [Voiceover] Mom, don’t forget about us. – Oh, yeah. And the kids need something
to do so I just went over to Hobby Lobby and
picked up these DIY kits, and they make it really
easy because they have all the little doodads in ’em. You just throw it in a cute
little organizer like this that I got at the Dollar
Store, and let them have at it. All right guys. So if you loved this video,
