Hog roasts make great outdoor parties, especially if you are hosting many guests. Plan your party using a pig theme, and easily make homemade invitations to match. You can make electronic invitations for free, using websites like Smilebox, or create handmade invitations using a few craft supplies.

  1. 1

    Determine the size and style of invitation you prefer. You can choose to use the full 8 1/2-by-11-inch page, a half page or the full page folded in half to make a card. Making two invitations per page is more economical and environmentally friendly, particularly for larger parties.

  2. 2

    Design your invitations, considering how much information you need to provide on the invitation, and whether you wish to include pictures or embellishments. Consider using a red and white checked paper that resembles a gingham picnic blanket, and pig-shaped rubber stamps or cutouts. Lay out the items on your card to see how they look before permanently placing them. This way, you can rearrange as necessary.

  3. 3

    Determine the wording. You may choose simple phrases such as: "You Are Invited to a Hog Roast" or "Join Us For a Hog Roast." You may also choose a more snappy phrase such as: "Let's Pig Out!"

  4. 4

    Use a ruler and pencil to lightly place a guideline on your invitation to indicate where your lettering and designs will go.

  5. 5

    Apply your lettering using the guidelines you have drawn, and erase any visible pencil lines when you're finished.

  6. 6

    Apply your pictures and other embellishments. If accessories are not pre-glued, use a gluestick or double-sided tape to apply.
