Crafty Creators Link Party #44

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!

This combo poof & spiral deco mesh wreath is so easy to make! Check out the full tutorial to make your own & save at least $50 for every wreath you don’t have to buy!

These easy DIY hand warmers are such a great handmade gift idea. You can make a pair for less than $1! They’re perfect for the law enforcement officers (love our LEOs!) if you’d like to bless those who keep your and your family safe throughout the year. They have to get out in the cold a LOT! You can also make them for teachers, postmen, garbage collectors, & all of those that make your life easier throughout the year. You can get an assembly line going and make 10 pairs in less than an hour. If you’re not a newbie sewer like me, you could knock them out even quicker! I have some free printable gift tags for them coming so be sure to follow me!

This Week’s Features!

Happy Thanksgiving my friends! I hope that you’ve had an amazing year so far and that your holiday season is even better. You’ve all blessed me so much this year. You have no idea how many times I’ve been in the hospital or doing outpatient treatments and have read your comments and posts and have felt so blessed to have a great group of blogger friends. Thank you for being you, and God bless you all!

These Christmas cocktail ball ornaments are so pretty and are perfect for celebrating the Christmas season with family and friends. I’m going to try to make some for our annual Christmas family movie night this weekend. Be sure to come back next week for all of the free printables to use at your own movie night or party. If you’re not familiar with our epic family movie nights for several holidays each year, I go all out, creating printable decor, food and drink tent cards, photobooth props, themed food and drinks, and fun games and activities. I share all of that for free with you so that you can have a tradition that your kids look forward to every year. Last year’s movie was Elf and you can get the free printables here, the movie night games and activity ideas here, and the DIY photobooth tutorial and free props here.

Meagan from Decorative Inspirations shared these vintage bottle ornaments. She makes an ornament for her family members each year which is a tradition that I might try out this year!

These Christmas tree cones are so cute with faux fur yarn covering them. I love all of the different sizes that Donna over at An Organized Season made. This week you get a bonus feature because I couldn’t pass up featuring these yarn Christmas trees with twinkle lights made by Carol over at Blue Sky at Home!

This Christmas tiered tray set up by Niky over at The House on Silverado is so cute. It has the perfect touch of buffalo check that would fit in great with my decor theme this year. It’s bound to give you inspiration for your own trays!

If you’d like to send your family and friends something special this year, these homemade Christmas cards by Julie of Sum of Their Stories are perfect. She shows you how to make watercolor wreaths that look like something most people can do!
