game night with homemade pictionary

diy pictionary | almost makes perfect

we’ve started doing a game night twice a month with friends – and for our turn hosting, we chose pictionary as the game. then i looked in the closet and realized we didn’t own pictionary. OOPS.

since we had two large teams, we didn’t actually need a physical board. we just needed to draw somewhere big and we had everyone write clues down.

if you want to host a game night and play pictionary, it’s SUPER easy to DIY.

using a large roll of paper and a dowel, i tied twine to either side of the paper to hang it. i then wrapped a sharpie in washi tape and hung it to the dowel using elastic cord.

i cut up printer paper and tossed the pieces into a bowl a long with a jar full of pens and we were ready to play.

we made a couple of appetizers.

fig and brie bites

these fig and brie bites are my new go – to snack. they’re super easy to make, look pretty, and taste so good.

bruschetta

i also made mini versions of my bruschetta recipe which surprisingly didn’t make a big mess.
(we also had guacamole and donuts)

diy pictionary happy game night

oh and after all that … our team lost in sudden death.
