DIY Galentine's Day Party

by Lynn Lilly, Feb 09 2019

Valentine's Day is not just for love birds but also an excuse to celebrate your besties. Galentine's Day is one of my favorite holidays. Every year I gather my girls for an afternoon of sweet treats, crafts, and fun! This year I worked with Krylon® Brand to create a sweet Galentine's Day party banner and decorations. I used wood letters and rectangular wood pieces to create the banner. I also gathered decor I had around the studio and the house that I could upcycle with a fresh coat of spray paint. Scroll down for tips, material and a look at all the decor pieces. 

This post is sponsored byKrylon® Brand and is part of an on-going paid campaign between Craft Box Girls and Krylon® Brand. All ideas, opinions, and photographs are my own!

Supplies: 

  • 1 Can of Krylon ColorMaster® Paint + Primer - 25% More in Gloss Ballet Slipper
  • 1 Can of Krylon ColorMaster® Paint + Primer - 25% More in Metallic Gold
  • 1 Can of Krylon ColorMaster® Paint + Primer - 25% More  in Gloss White
  • 1 Can of Krylon ColorMaster® Paint + Primer - 25% More in Gloss Mambo Pink
  • 16 Thin Wood Rectangles
  • Wood Letters to Spell Out "Be My Galentine"
  • Small Wooden Hearts 
  • Hot Glue Gun & Hot Glue
  • Nylon String
  • Various items to upcycle like lanterns, mason jars, baskets, vases, etc.
  • Raw wood purses 
  • Tarps
  • Gloves & Mask (optional)

Project Time: 2 Hours (including dry time)

For this project, I grabbed two friends to help. This could be a great way to get your friends excited for the party! 

Directions: 

  1. Before getting starting I drilled small holes in the corner of each wood rectangle piece to make it easy to hang. 
  2. In a well-ventilated space, or outdoors, cover a flat surface with a drop cloth or tarp.
  3. Before starting, read and follow safety and application instructions on the spray paint can.
  4. Lay the wood rectangles, letters and hearts on the tarp to prepare to spray. 
  5. I recommend grouping all your other items together by the color you want to paint them. 
  6. Hold the spray paint cans about 8-12 inches from the surface you are spraying and use sweeping motions.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                
  7. I sprayed the wood rectangles with Gloss White, the "BE" in Metallic Gold, the "My" in Gloss Ballet Slipper and "Galentine" in Gloss Mambo Pink. These need a light second coat. I waited about 20 minutes in between coats.  
  8. Once the banner rectangles and letters were dry I used the hot glue gun to attach the letters. I finished banner by stringing it on pink nylon string.                                                                                                                                                                                     
  9. Check out a few other action shots spraying other pieces for the party.    
  10. Once all the projects were dry it was time to decorate! 

TADA!! Here is my super sweet Galentine's Day Party! In the photo below the banner, lanterns, baskets, vases, purses, window, clipboard and letters were all designed with spray paint!
