Crafty Creators Link Party #72

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.

This week I shared this farmhouse style patriotic burlap wreath, and it’s my favorite patriotic wreath so far. It only takes 3 easy steps to make!

Next I shared the secret to saving more than $1000 a year, the complete at home gel manicure guide. I’ll never spend $160 per month at a salon!

This Week’s Features!

Since it’s the last Crafty Creators before we celebrate Fourth of July, I thought we’d have one more week of patriotic features to get you ready for your festive parties. These adorable patriotic printables by Allyson over at Southern Sunflowers are just what you need to get the party started! Print them, frame them with her cute DIY frame, and pop them on the table. Easy, last-minute decor!

This cute patriotic wooden sign by Steph of Steph Creates would be a cute addition to your home this July. There are so many ways to customize it to fit your style. Just like she did it, or with a large loopy bow on the left, painted like an American flag, or… you get the picture! Did I mention it’s a Dollar Tree project (they now have different wooden plaques!)? Yes, please!

Beth over at Whispers of the Heart has knocked it out of the park again with this Stars & Stripes and Uncle Sam patriotic tablescape. I love how she wrapped the napkins around the plates. It saved a napkin ring and created beautiful eye candy! There’s just so much cuteness in this, but I’m in love with the US Capitol bank she added. (Ok, I’ll admit that she said it’s actually supposed to be a bank building, but it really looks like the Capitol!)

Debbie from Debbie Dabble Blog set up some sweet patriotic treats in her living room that serve as dessert and decor, and it looks so cute! Don’t miss her post because she shared more of her patriotic decor, both indoors and out. I’m in love with the lanterns and other decor on her stairs!

If you need a patriotic dessert to share with your family next week, this amazing flag cake will blow them away! Cindy over at Seasonal and Holiday Recipe Exchange will give you the full recipe and instructions for making your own. Be sure to check it out to see how cute the full cake is. I just had to share this small slice to show you how perfect the flag looks!
