About Birthday Parties

Do*It*Yourself Crafts is here to make your birthday party a success! We offer several options to suit different budgets and ages. Before booking your party, please take the time to review our general policies below.

General Policies:

  • A minimum of 10 participants is required.

  • A $75 non-refundable deposit is required to book your party.

  • Unless arranged ahead of time, all parties should be “drop off”. Please let us know how many non-painting family members will be in attendance.

  • Tie-dye shirts  and canvases can go home the day of the party. All other projects will be ready for pickup by the party host a week after the party (if it is longer than 7 days, our staff will notify you). All projects will be packaged in one bag for easy pick-up and labeled with the name of each painter. Individual guests may not pick up separately.

  • You may arrive 10-15 minutes prior to the event to set up. Decorations are allowed, but we do not allow piñatas, confetti or anything that could harm your guests or our staff, or would prevent us from providing a clean space for the next event. To avoid disappointment, please contact us before your party to discuss your plans.

  • We accept cash, MasterCard, Visa, Discover and American Express. Personal checks are not accepted.

What to Expect:

  • Guest Arrival: Our staff will check them in and guide them to the craft options you have chosen for the party. While waiting for other guests, they may decorate our chalkboard and the kids will decorate white bags that will be used to package their crafts when they are finished.

  • Starting the Craft: We will provide instructions to your guests, hand out their pieces and assist where needed.

  • Clean Up: After 45-60 minutes, our staff will clean up the craft and clear the tables for refreshments.

  • Remaining Half-Hour: The last half hour of the party is for food, drink and fun! You may bring your own cake and other foods. Please note that we have some rules about food for kids’ parties.

  • We’re Here for You: Our staff is happy to help you in any way, from handing out drinks, passing out cake or anything we can do to make your party a wonderful time! We are experienced at running parties within a set timeframe. To optimize the success of your party and to avoid disappointment, please contact us before your party to discuss your plans.

Tips: While not expected, they are certainly appreciated. You can add your tip at the time of check-out.

Types of Parties

At Do It Yourself Crafts, we offer many different craft options for kids parties.

Painting pottery is appropriate for all ages. Choices are to paint a plate, bowl, or mug, or what we call "critters and collectibles." Pottery paint washes out of clothes, and items are food safe once glazed and fired, so kids can really use plates, bowls and mugs.

Tie-Dye parties are appropriate for kids six and up. T-shirts will go home with kids the day of the party, rolled up in a plastic bag. We offer shirts in sizes Youth Medium and Youth XL. Tie-Dye paint can stain clothes, and guests should dress accordingly (we will provide smocks).

Glass Fusing parties are for our older parties, with the birthday child turning 10 and no guests younger than 9. You can pick between a glass letter or a 4x6" glass blank to decorate.

Clay parties are also great for older kids - we have several options for fun with creating, and then painting, an object from clay. We offer a "poof" plate, a pinch-pot alien, or a cross. Clay parties are for kids turning 9, with no guests younger than 8.

Canvas parties are another project that will go home with you the day of the party. Guests will paint on a 12x12" canvas. We have several designs for the birthday child to select from, and we will email you a selection beforehand to make your decision. We will provide smocks for all painters, but acrylic paint will stain clothes. This is a party appropriate for kids in 1st grade and older.
