Crafty Creators Link Party #43

Welcome to Crafty Creators Link Party, where you can share all of your wonderful crafts, DIYs, fashion, recipes, or any other thing that makes your heart happy! After you link up, I’d love it if you’d spread the word about the party! Remember, you must be following me on social media in order to be featured on next week’s party.

Don’t forget to link up on Happiness is Homemade. Now let’s get to the posts that I shared over the last week

The Christmas shopping season is here, and I’ve teamed up with some lovely ladies to bring you The Joy of Giving Giveaway. Enter to win a $175 gift card to spend on Etsy. Imagine all of the great things you can buy with it! There are daily entries, so make sure you came back and enter every day until December 15. Follow me on every social media platform to increase your chances to win!

On the 10th I shared how to create a fuller, more appealing farmhouse decoration with a Dollar Tree Christmas tree. You can make and decorate the entire tree for less than $7!

You can make these DIY Christmas stocking holders for less than $3 each! They are so cute and you can change the greenery and bows out each year to match your decor theme.

This Week’s Features!

Thanksgiving will be here one week from today! Can you believe it?! These adorable photo place cards by Debbee of Debbee’s Buzz are such a cute idea. My family would love these!

This year’s Thanksgiving meal is going to cost us more than 12% more this year than it did last year, and last year was even up on 2020, so we need to save money wherever we can. Donna over at An Organized Season shared some great ways to save money with these thrifted Thanksgiving ideas.

Jenna of A Painted Apron’s Thanksgiving tablescape is beautiful decked out with glitter place cards and twinkling fairy lights. It is a beautiful inspiration for your own!

Drugstore Divas shared these adorable nutter butter acorns for those of us who have picky little dessert eaters or those who don’t have time to bake yet another pie for Thanksgiving. Aren’t they cute and perfect for the holiday?

You’ve got to have something to do with the kids during the week leading up to Thanksgiving as well as on that day (they don’t want to clean up after or watch football lol!), and this turkey bucket list of things they are thankful for is a perfect way to keep them busy and out of the way. Beth over at Creatively Beth has some other great ideas to do with kids if you’re looking for them!
