Crafty Creators Link Party #56

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.

On Saturday I shared a last-minute gift idea and free printable for Valentine’s Day. You can pin it for next year and use it for friends, teachers, or anyone else you want to show a little love to!

This week we moved on from Valentine’s Day (which I thought was Wednesday- bad mom and wife, but I recovered and pulled it out a day early lol), to St. Patrick’s Day. In this tutorial I show you how to create DIY signs and other decor without a Cricut. I included a St. Patrick’s Day design, but you can create your own to use for any sign year-round.

This Week’s Features!

This farmhouse floral wreath made by Meredith over at Arts & Classy is so pretty. Can you believe it was her first wreath attempt? I always tell people anyone can do it. Not that Meredith is just anyone. She’s a very talented lady!

We’ll soon be heading into spring, which means spring cleaning and organizing. Donna over at An Organized Season is taking it to another level with her gorgeous pantry of decanted food. I wish I had all those amazing containers to do the same. Oh yea, and the pantry too. We only have cabinets in the new house!

Steph over at Steph Creates Things created this adorable little wood riser using a Dollar Tree wood plaque. It’s an easy project that anyone can do for $2.50!

I’ve never given any thought to decorating or really celebrating for President’s Day, but Debbee over at Debbee’s Buzz shared this post for how to celebrate and decorate for the holiday. Her presidential dishes are beautiful!

We have another holiday coming up next week, Mardi Gras! Woohoo! Down here on the Coast we have a blast at the parades (though we do get over it pretty quickly lol). If you don’t live near the parades, you can still celebrate with a Mardi Gras salad full of the purples, greens, and yellows made by Jenna over at The Painted Apron.
