These junk accessories are a part of every girl's attire, so wear them and enjoy the admiring glances.
Blings on Phones or Wallets- Get metallic sequins or blings, you will find umpteen number of websites offering these ornamented accessories. Arts and craft stores also keep them in variety and different colors to choose from. Decide for a design on your phone or wallet, and paste the sequins or blings on the outlined design, and fill it eventually.

Coloring Your Converse- You will need fabric colors, paintbrushes, and a plain pair of sneakers or converse.

Well, to get going now, with the help of the marker, draw a funky design on your shoes and fill it with colors. An outline with the marker looks classy and stylish. You can have the name of your favorite football team inscribed or you can have graphics of space on your shoes. When you don those shoes in the morning, you are sure to make a style statement.
Making a Skateboard- This is a real fun craft idea for a sleepover, and something every guy would want to do. All you need is a wooden board cut in an oval shape, rectangular or any shape you desire. Make sure you get these boards drilled with four holes on the back. Buy hinges with wheels attached to them from a hardware store, and some fabric colors or spray paints. Now, with the help of a screwdriver and a few screws, install the hinges on the wooden board. Your skateboard is ready! Now, just get a little creative and paint it. Spray paints give the skateboard a very rugged and awesome look. You can come up with your name on it, or anything else that you like.
Once you are done with the arts and crafts work, "girls do not forget to have a pillow fight, and guys get hooked onto your video games buddies". Enjoy your pajama party and do not forget to flaunt the crafts you made during the sleepover.
