Happy Hunger Games! DIY Tutorials, Recipes, Party Ideas, and More

Well the Hunger Games DVD is due out tomorrow! If you’ve been around here you know I’m a huge fan of the books and I think they did a pretty good job on the movie too. I wanted to share my most recent Hunger Games crafts tutorials since I figured you all probably need some fan goods to ring in the movie.

I made this necklace by using bottle caps made with Heidi’s tutorial and printables that she shared during my Hunger Games Blog Party and instead of using a pin back I picked glued on a necklace bail. So easy right? I love it so much and I wear it all the time.

You’ve got to have something to carry your movie home in right? I’m pretty sure an awesome I Shop The Hob market tote is exactly what you need. Make your own with my quick and easy tutorial.

Are you having a viewing party or just want a feast fit for the film? Try my crock pot Katniss Stew. Yes that Lamb and Dried Plum Stew that our favorite tribute gushes over, that’s what should be on your menu.

Or maybe you’ve got district pride. Show the district 12 tributes that they are in your heart by wearing this awesome chunk of coal coal inspired pendant around your neck (or on your keys). Oh yes I do indeed wear that, and I feel awesome whilst doing it!

And last but not least every HG fan needs her own Mockingjay Shirt. I mean really does that need any explanation? And if you want more tutorials, recipes and party ideas (oh yes I even show you have to make your own Hunger Games Parachutes) be sure to check out all the awesome posts from me and my friends from the Hunger Games Blog Party!

Let’s connect! You can also find me hanging out here.


  1. I just started Hunger Games last night. I know I am way behind the curve, but it took me forever to plow through that last Game of Throwns book. I hate those mid series kind of books they are all set up and very little forward momentum. I can feel the itching page turning finger!

    BTW – Thanks for participating in the Eat Make Grow blog hop. Round three just went up this morning:
