Welcome to Crafty Creators Link Party, my newest link party where you can share all of your wonderful crafts, DIYs, fashion, recipes, or any other thing that makes your heart happy! Since this link party is so new, I’d love it if you would spread the word and share away!
This Week on the Blog
This past week I joined up with some lovely ladies for a blog hop called Creative Craft Hop. As my contribution, I shared a tutorial for this adorable buffalo check wreath for St. Patrick’s Day. The great part of this wreath is that you can change it out for different seasons and holidays. Buffalo check is so versatile!
Last month Dollar Tree had some shamrock wreath forms, and I knew I had to snatch them up. The holiday shelves have been completely bare these days. I finally decided what to do with one of the forms, and I shared the tutorial for making a burlap shamrock wreath in this post.
Finally, I created a tutorial for how to make and use a vinyl stencil with a Cricut. In it I shared screenshots with step-by-step instructions all the way from uploading a free SVG to how to seal a stencil so the paint doesn’t bleed on canvas. I simplified it so that you use this tutorial even if you just plugged your machine in! If you’re a Cricut master, check out the tutorial to get my free St. Patrick’s Day SVG & a free printable to use as decor.
I have some free printable St. Patrick’s Day wall art on the way, so make sure you follow me on social media using the buttons in the sidebar so you don’t miss it. If you’d like to be featured on next week’s party, you must be following me on one of the platforms.

This Week’s Features
How cute are these decoupaged balls and Easter eggs? Carol from Blue Sky at Home shares a tutorial for turning plain eggs or balls into beautiful vase filler with Mod Podge. She used Easter eggs and spring colors, but this tutorial is perfect for any time of year. Dollar Tree has a 6-pack of craft eggs right now that would be perfect for this project.
Terrie from Decorate and More with Tip made this amazingly creative faux wooden dough bowl candle. Can you believe it’s not wood at all? Not even close to wood. Check out her tutorial to see how she made this from a Dollar Tree soap dish!
Isn’t this spring bead wreath absolutely gorgeous? Denise from My Home of All Seasons is just so talented. The colors and flowers are perfect for the warming weather (quickly warming where I am). In the post she also shared the free printable floral banner, so make sure to head over and get it!
The pom pom cardstock birds made by Linda at Crafts a la Mode are so cute. I think they would be perfect for a spring baby or wedding shower and you can customize them for any theme with the paper. Read Linda’s post to see how to make your own. They’re so easy she’s got her hubby helping out!
This flower pot wreath would be a great addition to your home for spring. Mary Jo at Masterpieces of My Life came up with this unique idea, and I love it. It’s cute, inexpensive, and you can customize it to no end! You can add neutral Easter eggs for Easter and when that’s over you can remove them and add bows that fit the season.
Grab Your “I Was Featured” Button!
If you were featured, grab your “I was featured” button to display on your blog! Just right click on the image and choose “Save Image As,” then add it to your site. You can add a link back to the blog with the image if you’d like. I would really appreciate it. One day I’ll figure out how to create a code with the link embedded in the button.
