Get Your DIY on: Stars {& Features + an Announcement!}

Welcome to the final week of our Get Your DIY on Party Challenge!  We made it!  It is a bit sad, no? Thank you all so much for participating with us each week.  We hope you had fun, met some new bloggers and crafters, and most importantly, we hope you were inspired!
Each week we had so many amazing projects shared. Next week, I will be posting features for this week’s “Stars” theme as well as a recap of all the features I chose from the last sixteen weeks!
Let’s take a look at some of the features from last week’s Homemade Gift Projects Challenge!
First up are these gorgeous Sheet Music Candles by Sharon at Elizabeth & Company.  She shows how easy they are to make!

I love this next gift idea too… Personalized Etched Glass Bakeware by Lauren at The Thinking Closet:

Finally, I fell in love with these little Dollhouse Peg Dolls Amy at Wife Hat Mom Hat made for her daughter’s dollhouse.  I just know these will be cherished for years to come:

Tonight’s party will be the last of our 16 week challenge, but you haven’t seen the last of us! Starting Sunday, January 5th,  we will be continuing our themed parties as a monthly link party!!  We hope you’ll continue to share your amazing projects with us on the first Sunday of every month! Our first theme will be organization. I know I’ve got several areas of my house in dire need of some clearing out! 🙂

Again, This week’s theme is “Star Projects”.  You are more than welcome to link up any actual star projects, but if you don’t have any with stars please feel free to link up your favorite projects!  Link up your “all star” projects and best projects from the past.  Let’s finish this challenge with a bang!!
