Golden Girls Themed Zoom Happy Hour
Remember this fall when I threw a virtual Golden Girls themed virtual happy hour? Good times and cheesecake all around! Well of course I also decorated a Golden Girls themed Christmas tree to match. What can I say I can’t resist a good theme! Might I suggest a two for one Golden Girls virtual craft date? Read on.
P.S. Did you see my Bob Ross Virtual Painting Party?
DIY Decoupage Napkin Christmas Ornaments
While preparing for the Golden Girls happy hour I couldn’t help fawning over the napkins. These adorable napkins are from Prime Party where you can get everything you need to host a virtual happy hour or make some DIY ornaments to giveaway to your friends this Christmas. Seriously, how cute are these illustrious? Too cute to wipe cheesecake onto!
Fun Fact: Napkins Are An Under Appreciated Craft Medium
I love crafting with paper napkins. They are cute (just look at the Golden Girls), they are inexpensive and they come in about a bazillion different colors, patterns and options! Sure they are handy to have around for impromptu playdates and happy hours, but don’t forget to also think of them as a crafting medium!
DIY Ideas Using Paper Napkins
- String Lights – You will never look at cardboard toilet paper rolls the same way again after seeing these DIY fairy light makeovers.
- Art Journals – If it will sit still long enough I will eventually add it to one of my art journals. Napkins are no exception.
- Wooden Beads – Check out these 5 trendy transformations of wooden craft store beads including decoupage with napkins.
Supplies For Whipping Up Some DIY Golden Girls Christmas Ornaments
- Prime Party Golden Girls Beverage Napkins
- Decopage Medium
- Blank Ornaments
- Paint Brush
Pro Tip: You can use glue instead of decoupage and if you don’t have blank ornaments cut your own shapes out of cardboard!
Add The Decoupage to the Ornament
Using a brush apply a liberal amount of decoupage medium to the ornament. Same goes for glue.
Decoupage The Golden Girls Napkin Onto the Ornament
While the decoupage is still wet line apply your napkin to the ornament. The Prime Party Golden Girls napkins come with 4 color ways on each napkin so technically I could make 4 ornaments per napkin.
P.S. These cocktail napkins are two-ply. Pull the two pieces apart and discard the white tissue.
Smooth Out the Bumps and Trim
Using your finger smooth out any obvious bumps. Allow the decoupage to dry completely and then trim the excess napkin away. If you are feeling really extra you can paint the backside or decoupage with another Golden Girls color way.
Say Thank You For Being a Friend With a DIY Ornament
These dudes are so cute and easy to make once you get started you will want to make an entire tree full. I added some ribbon to a few of mine but you can embellish however you want. I also love the round ornaments I made with the Prime Party Golden Girls Luncheon Napkins.
Pin the Glasses on Sophia
Once I started decorating my Golden Girls themed Christmas tree I couldn’t just stop with DIY decoupage napkin ornaments. You know me – more is more. I love the Prime Party Pin the Glasses on Sophia Game. I’m sure it is an awesome party game, but I might like it even better as tree decor.
Finish Trimming Your Golden Girls Themed Christmas Tree
After the ornaments and glasses I added a few ornaments and pearl necklaces. Yup, pearl necklaces. I have boxes of vintage costume jewelry and all I did was latch together several strands of pearls as a Christmas tree garland. I think Blanche would approve of tree accessories.
Wouldn’t you love to get or give a set of Golden Girls Christmas Ornaments this holiday season? I know I would!
