DIY Painting Party

Posted on

My Aunt recently got married, and no wedding celebration is complete with out a Bachelorette party.
My Aunt wanted something low key since the only time we had was right after the rehearsal dinner the day before the wedding.
I had seen wine painting parties, and I loved the idea.
We changed it a little, since it was the day before her wedding, we wanted to be able to do something memorable.
The typical wine painting parties have everyone painting the same image, but since every one's artistry is different, all the paintings will end up looking unique in their own way.
For my aunts painting party, i wanted her to be able to see every ones painting and remember who came to her celebrate her last night as a single lady.

this tree and bird image was from her wedding invitation. She loved it, so we thought this would be the perfect image.
I took the image and divided it into 16 squares. we had 14 people coming, so some people had to paint extra.
 As you can see, we each had an 8x8 small canvas. We each chose a square to paint, and started painting while we sipped on wine. We laughed, drank and painted away.
One by one, the larger picture was starting to come together.

Here's the final painting with everyone's painting in place.
I think it turned out great, and My Aunt loved it.
 The total cost for this project was less than $100.00- if you had to buy everything.
the canvases were under 5.00 each (on sale at Michaels.)
the paint and brushes was provided by one of the attending ladies.
Congrats again, Aunt Kitti and Ramon.



  1. What a wonderful idea, I really loved how the painting finally came together beautifully in the end. It will certainly make for some amazing memories in the future. Hope your aunt’s wedding was very enjoyable as well. I also attended my sister’s wedding a few days ago and it was an amazing event at one of the spectacular Seattle Wedding venues.
