Crafty Creators Link Party #70

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.

My son turned 12 this week, and we’re throwing him a backyard campout birthday party. Yea, a bunch of 12 year old boys in my house and backyard for 18 hours, prayers please, lol! As with all of the parties that I throw, I created themed printables for the night. You can get the free customizable e-vite or printable invitations in this post. That’s right. Completely customizable for your party!

Today is our Creative Craft Hop where I shared this coastal wood bead wreath. I love how it turned out, especially since I made it for less than $8!

This Week’s Features!

Summer will be here officially next week, but for most of us, it’s already in full swing. This week I’ll be some DIY summer decor ideas, starting with these beautiful DIY mason jar lights by Meredith of Arts & Classy. They have a lovely nautical theme, which is perfect for summer!

With summer arriving, flowers are all in full bloom! If you don’t want to spend money every week replacing dead flowers in your home, then these fabric chrysanthemums made by Claire at Pillar Box Blue are just what you need. They’re beautiful and will last season after season!

Michelle of Thistle Key Lane shared her neutral themed summer home. She used light colors like white, gray, and light blue mixed with airy patterns. The combination is lovely! Be sure to check out her post where she shared some of the DIYs that she used in her summer decor.

If you’re looking for some great summer craft and food ideas, check out Jenna of the Painted Apron’s summer roundup. There are fabulous ideas like this tray with painted pitcher and glasses, beautifully functional watermelon basket for serving (a literal watermelon!), and an outdoor serving station for hosting those summer get-togethers!

With the warm weather here, you can sit outside and enjoy your morning coffee. Protect your expensive outdoor furniture with these DIY waterproof coasters created by Lisa of Condo Blues. Aren’t they adorable?!
