Coffee Gift Baskets – Coffee and Crafting Party | This shop is #sponsored by #CollectiveBias and its advertiser. The story and opinions read here are entirely my own ~ #SipIndulgence

No matter how busy life can be, I consider myself pretty lucky to know a group of girls
that are always up for a fun night of crafting.

There is nothing like taking a moment for yourself and gathering with like-minded souls
to create, make and connect.

Coffee Gift Baskets In a Jar | coffee and crafting party #SipIndulgence

This month we came together, not only to craft –
but to assemble some gifts to pass along to others and pay it forward. 

I love the idea of random acts of kindness and with the help of NESTLÉ® COFFEE-MATE® Liquid Coffee Creamers we are sharing our coffee love this week with our Coffee Gift Baskets in-a-jar.

All of the details for the Coffee Gift Baskets can be found below,
along with the full party set up, two simple and fun craft tutorials
and, of course, a recipe to compliment the coffee.

If you have ever thought of hosting your own crafting party, or simply thinking of paying it forward, I hope you’re inspired!

The Coffee and Donut Cart

Coffee Bar Ideas #SipIndulgence

Every party needs some snacks. Keeping with our coffee theme I created a simple coffee and donut cart for our crafting soiree.

Coffee-Mate Nestle Chocolate Boutique Creamers #sipindulgence

Each of us has been known to indulge in our everyday morning cup of coffee to get us going. I never mind adding new flavors to my cup and always look forward to checking out the current creamer lines.
The NESTLÉ® COFFEE-MATE® Chocolate Boutique Liquid Coffee Creamers are now available in three new flavors;
Chocolate Toffee Truffle,  Salted Caramel Chocolate, and Cafe’ Mocha.

The homemade Salted Caramel Baked Donuts were inspired by the creamers and can be made using any of your favorite flavors.

The Party Set Up

For crafting parties I like to either set up supply stations or actually set the table, like I did for our Coffee Gift Baskets. This gives me a chance to gather all of the supplies and make sure we have everything we need for our projects, prior to the guests arriving.

Craft Party Ideas #SipIndulgence

The theme for this craft party was Coffee Gift Baskets.

Two fun and simple crafts were on our agenda for the night,
in addition to assembling the gift baskets themselves.

Inexpensive pizza pans not only protect your table,
but create a perfect individual workspace for each guest.

How to Host a Crafting Party #SipIndulgence

Since the Coffee Gift Baskets were being made to pay it forward, I picked up some small favors for the girls to take home for themselves.

I just couldn’t resist these ceramic cream and sugar milk cartons to go with our theme.

How to Host a Crafting Party Coffee Lovers Gift Baskets #SipIndulgence

Our two craft projects for the night included stenciled kitchen towels and mini succulent planters, embellished with glitter.

Coffee and Crafting Party #SipIndulgence

Craft No. 1 ~ Stenciled Kitchen Towels

DIY Stenciled Kitchen Towels #SipIndulgence

Stenciled Kitchen Towels
Materials Needed:
Flour Sack Towels
Craft Stencils
Soft Fabric Paint

Additional Supplies Needed: Foam Applicators, Paper Towels


Lay out the flour sack on a flat protected surface. A quick pressing may be needed to iron out any major creasing.

Use the patterned stencils to come up with a design idea, prior to beginning.

When you are ready to start stenciling, hold the stencil in place with one hand and dab the paint on with the other hand, using a foam applicator.

Once the entire stencil is filled in with paint, gently remove it from the towel.

Note: To keep the continued stenciled design sharp, occasionally wipe any excess paint off of the stencil, in-between uses. 

Repeat the stenciling process until a desired pattern is created on the towel. 

Drying times and instructions to set the paint will vary depending on the brand of fabric paint being used. We started with the towels and by the end of the night they were completely dried and ready to be

Craft No. 2 ~ Glittered Mini Succulent Planters

DIY Glitter Flower Pots Coffee and Crafting Party #SipIndulgence

Mini Succulent Planters
Materials Needed:
Terra Cotta Flower Pots, 2 inch
Spray Paint or Acrylic Paints
Decoupage Medium
Mini Succulent Plants

Additional Supplies Needed: Paint Brush, Small Paper Plate


Apply a base coat of paint to the terra cotta pots. We gave our pots a quick coat of white spray paint.

Brush on a thin layer of decoupage medium and sprinkle with a generous amount of glitter.

Let sit to dry.

Tuck in a mini succulent plant.

When working with glitter it’s a good idea to sprinkle it over a flexible paper plate. The plate will catch any excess glitter and it can easily be recycled back into the original container by slightly bending the paper plate in half, using it as a funnel.
