It's a Party! #176


Welcome to the party!

Wow! This week is flying by! I'm still mainly working on wedding projects, but trying to squeeze in a few Fall things in between. I made a banner for the front door this week that I'll show you on Friday and I did get Jordyn's wrap bracelets done last week, too.



You can go Here to see how simple they were to make out of old belts.


Did you catch the awesome features this week?



Corn Husk Fall Wreath from Kathe With an E
Fall Porches from Krafty Cards etc.


Reminder: For the next few weeks, I will have features Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday. The party will start on Wednesday afternoon and I'll have a craft to share with you on Friday. Things are crazy around here with Brandon and Christina's wedding coming up and this really helps me out.
Everything will be back to normal the first of October.

Now it's your turn. Let's see what all you've been up to.




Link up anything you want to share with us this week. It can be your fabulous craft, yummy recipe, giveaway, shop, etc.

I'll feature the Top 5 most viewed links next Wednesday. I started a board on Pinterest where I pin all of the fabulous features. You can follow along Here.

I would love for you to follow A Creative Princess while you're here!

If you would like to grab an It's a Party button (on the sidebar) and post it on your blog somewhere, that would be great! Let's get the word out and grow this party.
The more the merrier!

We all love comments, so please visit other links and have fun!


Best Ever Apple Butter


I make this every single Fall and when I saw that The Life of a Craft Crazed Mom made it, too, I knew I had to feature it.




This is soooo delicious and smelling it cook all day in the crock pot is Heaven! We actually eat it like applesauce and for a special treat, heat it up a little and add vanilla ice cream. YUM!

Head on over to The Life of a Craft Crazed Mom for the recipe and see how simple it is to make.

I'll see you all back here later today to get this week's party started.

Corn Husk Fall Wreath


Kathe from Kathe With an E made a Fall Wreath that is absolutely my favorite of all time. 



A corn husk and sunflower wreath! Awesome! It looks perfect hanging on her front door.

 You can go to  Kathe With an E to see all the details of how she made it.


Have a great Monday!

Old Belts to Wrap Bracelets


Most of the time when I buy new dress pants, they always come with a skinny belt, which I never wear. I never throw them out, though. 

Here's why (besides the fact that I'm a hoarder):




They make great wrap bracelets!

The best part is that to make them is one of those crafts that you can do in 5 minutes or less.




You start by taking your belt and wrapping it a couple of times around your wrist and then cutting it off to the size you want. Your length really depends on how many times you want to wrap the bracelet.




To finish the cut end, I used a jewelry clamp. I really don't know the official name for it, but I think it's a ribbon end clamp.




I used my Crop-a Dile to punch holes in the end, but you could use a regular small hole punch or even a nail to make your new holes.




That's all there is to it.

You now have a bracelet to match every pair of dress pants you own!





Have a Happy Friday!
