7 Ingenious Crafts to Make You The Ultimate Host

Whether it’s a reunion with distant family, or friends staying over after a night of fun, go the extra mile with these charming makes

7 Ingenious Crafts

1 Handmade Candles

Scented candles are always luxurious, and when you can customise the scent and look, it’s truly bliss. Use a kit like Eazi Candle Starter Kit - Lily of the Valley (482259) to make the candles, decorate the candle holders to match the guest room’s décor, dot them around and light them just before your guests arrive – your guests will be in heaven!

2 Embroidered Pillows

If it’s a regular guest staying over, you can embroider a pillowcase with their name on it, and add a sweet pattern around it for a loving touch. That way, they know they’ll always have a place in your home. Use plenty of vibrant colours, like those in the Embroidery Floss 42 Bundles (479626), for fantastic results.

3 Custom Towels

Crisp, clean towels are a must for freshening up, and a delight to find on the guest bed. Why not make them even more lavish, by adding gorgeous crocheted or knitted edging. The pattern could match the guest room’s décor or the guest’s personality for something for fun and personalised.

4 Goodies Offering

Having a goodies basket of everything a guest might need – shampoo, water bottle, toothbrush, snacks – prepared on the bed makes for a delightfully touching sentiment. For added luxury, you could also quilt a layer of cushioning to go on the inside of the basket, from lovely fabric such as Debbie Shore Lily Pad Fabric Collection (482082).

5 Wi-Fi Password Portrait

During lazy mornings, it’s nice to have a leisurely browse through social media – so for a truly relaxing experience, it’s important to share the Wi-Fi password. Why not do that by making a pretty brush-lettered portrait to put in the guest room? Write the password along with a welcoming message in big looping font, using a gorgeous set like Lou Collins Brush Lettering Pens - Warm Tones (464213).

6 Storage Space

We all know the joy of buying more and more crafting supplies, and sometimes the excess of that is stored in the guest room – oops! However, old CD racks, drawers or even wardrobes can easily be upcycled into something gorgeous to keep your crafty supplies in. This way, guests can enjoy a neat and spacious room to stay in.

7 Personalised Mug

Whether your guest is a coffee or tea person, a hot morning drink in a perfectly personalised mug is a great way to start the day. Simply paint a blank mug with a pretty design appropriate for the person, and add their name in looping font – using a stencil might make this easier – then seal it all with something like Mod Podge Dishwasher Safe - Gloss (483915), so it can be washed.
