Crafty Creators Link Party #54

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.

To make this Valentine’s Day advent calendar you only need 5 pieces of cardstock paper and a Dollar Tree photo hanger! You can use it as a countdown calendar or a DIY Valentine’s Day gift filled with love notes or love coupons. That’s a great way to save money in this ecomony!

You can add my spouse love notes to your advent calendar to sweeten their day. Some of them are blank and some have writing prompts to help you out.

There are two sets of love notes for your kids in this post. I made cute little gnomes with and without writing prompts on some and Valentine’s animals on others. They also make sweet lunchbox notes throughout the year.

This Week’s Features!

Wendy over at WM Design House made this fabulous heart pinecone wreath, and I absolutely love it! I wish we had the variety of pinecones down here on the Gulf Coast as she does. They make for a great wreath.

This winter loop yarn wreath is so cute! You’ll love Denise’s winter front porch where her wreath is displayed. She’s also sharing the free printable sign to use inside your own wreath over on My Home of All Seasons!

If you’re looking for a quick DIY Valentine’s Day gift, this jumbo chocolate kiss container is perfect! Beth over at Creatively Beth made this adorable container and filled it with Hershey’s Kisses and small toys. So cute!

Cecilia shared a beautiful Valentine’s Day dessert buffet over at My Thrift Store Addiction that’s beautiful. I love all of the beautiful florals that she used. I will be looking for those baking cups at Dollar Tree!

Jenny over at Cook Eat Go shared an adorable (and tasty!) Valentine’s popcorn recipe that would be perfect for your child’s Valentine’s Day classroom party. If you have kids that will eat sweets or candy, it would also be a great addition to your family’s Valentine’s celebration. My son refuses to even try sweets. Guess I shouldn’t complain about that, but sometimes I would like to make things like this, but my husband and I certainly don’t need it lol!
