It’s Living Creative Thursday where I feature YOUR creative ideas!

This week we’re featuring your creative DIY Gift ideas. Nothing says “thank you” or “I was thinking about you” like a heartfelt gift you crafted yourself, and we hope these ideas will help you wow your next giftee!

Thanks so much to everyone who submitted their DIY Gift Ideas last week for #LivingCreative Thursday!

I love sprinkles. I love them on my cupcakes, on my ice cream and I love how Sweet Pea Lifestyle used them to craft adorable Sprinkle Candles!
