Handmade Holiday by Crafting Community, December 13th

Picture via
On December 13th at the Lombardi House in Los Angeles, Crafting Community is treating Los Angeles to it’s Handmade Holiday - an innovative event designed to create a window in time that cultivates creativity and imagination. Take a day off from the crowds and join their expert crew of celebrated designers for a series of festive workshops that give you all the tools you need to make one-of-a-kind holiday gifts for your loved ones. In the spirit of the season, a percentage of the event’s proceeds will benefit LA’s beloved community center, HOLA. 

Handmade Holiday’s unique workshops will include: 

  • Ornament BarUsing Martha Stewart Crafts ® products, Crafting Community will put their spin on this holiday staple. Participants can put the trimmings on personalized globe ornaments with glitter, paint and tinsel to create special decorations. 
  • Customized Holiday Cards: Crafting Community is partnering with L.A.-based letterpress stationer, Sugar Paper, for a colaborative workshop that will include a Smilebooth photo booth and customized letterpress cards with cheerful Sugar Paper liners.
  • Wrapping Station: Southern California-based Avery will present a wrapping station to put the finishing touches on the day’s creations, with custom labels for each family designed by Crafting Community.
  • God’s Eyes: A classic craft in a beautifully modern color palette - guests will have the opportunity to weave these magical objects traditionally created for celebration, gifting or to bless a home.
  • Succulent Gardens: These ornamental plants come alive when painted in an array of cool and unusual colors. Guests will also get to weave a beaded hanging to display them in style.
  • Leather: Guests will adorn  leather wrap bracelets and accessories with colorful, confetti studs.

Alongside these creative crafts, Crafting Community will be serving up other holly jolly activities for the entire family:

  • Nail Art Bar: Those looking to be festive for the flurry of holiday parties, can stop by the beauty bungalow for Hint Water’s custom nail art bar with manicurist’s from Olive & June’s.
  • Pop Up Shop: If the urge to shop kicks in, there will be an on-site Crafting Community Pop Up curated by artist Karen Kimmel. 
  • Fashion Fun With Undefeated: For the clothing inclined, guests can decorate tee shirts from LA bastion of cool, Undefeated.
  • Yummy Things: A snack station from Whole Foods, Quin Candy’s hot chocolate, cookie decorating with Isabella’s Cookies and mini ice cream sandwiches from Coolhaus will also be on site.
