Crafty Creators Link Party #74

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.

For the first time since starting this blog, I have taken a week off to relax and spend some time with my family. I figured the week of my birthday was as good a time as any to take off. I guess I didn’t truly take a week off since I’m still doing Crafty Creators, Happiness is Homemade, and my Web Stories, but it’s still a lot less time working, ha! I will be back with all new posts and projects next week. Until then, have fun linking up!

I have some more spring to summer decor and DIY Father’s Day gift tutorials, printables, and ideas coming up so make sure you follow me on social media using the buttons in the sidebar or at the top of the page. That way you don’t miss them! Enter your email address below to get an email when I add a new post, including new link parties, so you never forget to join us!

This Week’s Features!

I’m always looking for ways to decorate my home for less, and Carol of Blue Sky at Home came up with a fabulous idea to do that! She shared how to turn inexpensive fabric into affordable wall art. It’s so easy, and you can create a piece in any size that you need!

Basket wreaths are a great way to create an affordable wreath for every season. All you have to do is change out the flowers to match the season or holiday like Donna of An Organized Season did with her lavender and eucalyptus basket wreath.

Missy from Sonata Home Design made these boho throw pillows using affordable jute placemats, and I think they are just darling! Her tutorial is easy to follow, and you can save a ton by DIYing your own rather than buying them from a high-end store.

This wine bottle torch, made by Ann from Apples Street Cottage, is a beautiful and economical way to light your outdoor spaces. Add a citronella candle to it, and you’ll have decor that pretty, functional, and keeps your space mosquito free!

Our final feature this week is from Patty of Life is Better Lakeside. If you’re like me and won’t be heading to Disney World anytime soon, why not bring it to you with a Disney themed tablescape?! She didn’t stop with just a tablescape, she filled the room with the characters to evoke that vacation feeling even though she couldn’t make it to Orlando!
