Supplies:

  • Wooden Box (Hobby Lobby)
  • Anita’s All Purpose Acrylic Craft Paints in Morning Blue, Island Blue, Antique Gold, Vivid Pink, White, and Aegean Blue

My latest craft project, a quill box, was inspired by the Lilly Pulitzer Alpha Xi Delta Sorority print. I started by painting the entire wooden box Morning Blue, then free-hand tracing the print on to it. After tracing, I painted the blue flowers in the Island Blue and the pink flowers in Vivid Pink. I traced the petals in Aegean Blue. For the Greek letters, I painted the background white then used the Aegean Blue to make the actual letters. For the quills, I painted the background white and used Antique Gold for the outlining. The shield was a combination of the above colors.

For the inside of the box (which I don’t have pictures of), I painted the rims the Morning Blue, while the sides and top/bottom were painted Island Blue.

Hey! I'm helping with COB events at my chapter this year and I know every event stems from the theme; curious as to any theme ideas you might have or saw & really enjoyed? I'd love to have a little activity at each event [sort of like an ice breaker] but the theme and decor are my priority right now. Thanks :)

Themes that I really enjoyed are kind of simple and obvious, but I enjoyed them never the less. We had a “sleepover party” themed round and decorated with girly birthday party decorations and nice pillows etc and played a few sleepover-style games as ice breakers. If your COB events are allowed to be any length, you could pull out some sleepover movies! My all time favorite I’ve seen was a fiesta night, with little bowls of nachos, pinatas for decoration, and punch served in margarita-style glasses. It actually looked incredibly cute.

I really like themes where it plays on something that is meaningful to your sorority, like “Under the Sea” or “Diamonds are a Girls Best Friend” for dressier nights but don’t feel like just because that has nothing to do with your chapter you can’t use the ideas! During COB, my chapter has dressier meet & greet events near the end kind of speed-dating style where the girls can ask any last questions to the chapter officers in small groups.

For COB, we try to come up with themes that allow us to be as interactive as possible with the PNMs.

NOW: anyone who is reading this, please post your all time favorite recruitment event themes!

I’m in a co-ed honors fraternity (Phi Sigma Pi) and this is the paddle I made for my big. It’s simple, but it’s made of her favorite things.
