When most people think of the perfect 70s themed craft, they often think of disco. Although the hippy movement was still alive and well, disco was the major new trend of the decade. If you are planning on having a costume party or other special occasion, you may want to consider having it be themed around the 1970s. This will not only make your party special, but it will also give you lots of great ideas for crafts that you can do for the occasion.
For 70s disco related crafts, you first need to know a little bit about the culture. People in that time period started to like glamour and glitz a lot more than they used to. You see that a lot in the clothes they used to wear. If you are planning a get together centered on this theme, you should start by applying sequins on various things. For example, you could deck out a lamp by sewing a thick layer of sequins on the lamp shade. Although silver sequins are most accurate for the time period, don’t be afraid to go all out with colors and sizes. Have fun!
Another fun 70s craft you can do is to add a larger collar to the shirt that you are planning on wearing to the party. The fashions of the 1970s were pretty garish, so don’t be afraid to go over the top. You could even use some of your leftover sequins to deck out your party costume as well. How much fun you have with these crafts is up to you!
