Weekend Craft Soiree & Blog Hop {20} & a Few Announcements! :)

   Hey there! Thanks for stopping by for the Weekend Craft Soiree here at Homemaker in Heels! I have exciting news this weekend! My little blog has now reached 500 followers! I am lining up some giveaways and either next week or the following week we are going to have a week of giveaways to celebrate this milestone! 
   I am still needing a few more giveaway sponsors, so please let me know if you would like to sponsor a giveaway in exchange for advertisement here at Homemaker in Heels.
   I am also about to start having a guest blogger each week. Just let me know if you would be interested in sharing a post here! 

  Can you believe this is Week 20?! Those 20 weeks definitely flew by! Anyways, thanks so much to everyone who took the time to share such amazing posts last week! Every single post that linked up was fabulous! Here are the features.

I am loving this Ruffled Burlap Wreath from Finding My Way in Texas! It doesn't even require a wreath form! So pretty!

Molly from Life With the Ahlman's did a fabulous job on these Cheap, Easy DIY Coasters! These would also make great gifts! 

Vivienne at The V Spot did a fantastic job transforming a dollar store pumpkin into this amazing Plaid Flannel Pumpkin! She makes it look super-easy too!

Melissa at Shabby Love's Touches of Fall are amazing! I especially love the burlap bunting she made! :)

Here is another pumpkin tutorial I am just swooning over! Evie from Brown Paper Packages shared a great tutorial for making your very own Michael's Knock-off pumpkins! She makes it look much easier than you would think!  

Thank you all so much for sharing your amazing projects last week! I hope you found a little inspiration and made some new friends while you were here! If you were featured this week, feel free to grab a "featured" button!
