What is a Pallet Painting Party?
We offer two types of Pallet Painting Parties. A private party is organized by one person (the hostess) for a group they invite. A public party is organized by Rather Bee Crafting and open to anyone to attend. (Children must be accompanied by an adult). Each person attending decides ahead of time what design to make and pays in advance on our registration website. The signs are handmade by Rather Bee Crafting, assembled, sanded and made to your specification of straight or staggered board orientation. During the party guests will stain the signs the color of their choice, apply an adhesive stencil, and paint the color of their choice. We provide all supplies, clean up and set up as well as step by step instructions so everyone leaves with a one-of-a-kind completed sign.
Why do we have to preorder for Pallet Painting Parties?
We make every sign and stencil to order; therefore, we need enough time to create all the supplies for you before you arrive. We prefer all orders are received one week prior to the event.
What classes do you offer with Community Education?
