I recently hosted an Origami Owl Jewelry Bar/Craft Night for my girlfriends and thought I’d share all the fun details with you. Aside from one of the lockets and decorative items, all of the jewelry and origami owl materials in my jewelry bar came from the Holly Jolly Box of Happy. This kit comes with everything you need to create a fabulous jewelry bar and start up your very own business. From charms and lockets to brochures and thank you cards, you’ll be set. I added in a few decorative items, like that adorable white owl and glittered cage, and my jewelry bar was ready for my guests!
I kept my first jewelry bar casual and simple – a few of my close friends, yummy treats and an easy craft project. As a little thank you for coming, each of my guests took home an owl favor bag filled with Fairytale Brownies (the best brownies on the planet). To make these owl bags, you’ll need little paper bags, small doilies, hot glue, felt cut into circles (2 per bag) and googly eyes (2 per bag). Fold the top of the bag down and into a triangle flap as shown in the photo. Hot glue a doily under the flap and then hot glue the flap down on top. Hot glue 2 felt circles and googly eyes onto the bag, as shown in the photo. Don’t forget to add you Origami Owl cards inside the bags!
A craft project isn’t necessary to host a jewelry bar, but my friends are a crafty bunch and I couldn’t pass up those adorable ceramic OWL ornaments when I saw them at Michaels! I brought out my acrylic paint collection, some cheap sponge brushes and my guests had a blast chatting about all things Origami Owl while crafting. Another idea is to have your guests vote on the most creative project and the winner gets a prize – maybe some Origami Owl swag!
What I love about Origami Owl is that the jewelry speaks for itself. I’m sooooo not a salesman, which I think actually works for this product. I showed my friends my own living locket and shared what each charm meant to me and they instantly loved the concept. No annoying sales pitch needed. I can’t wait until my next jewelry bar!
