The Fun In Functional! {Link Party #73}

Welcome to The Fun In Functional, the weekly link party hosted on Practically Functional!

It’s beginning to feel a lot like winter! Now that there’s this nip in the air, all I want to do is walk around in boots and cute jackets and then come inside and warm up with a cup of cocoa by the fire! How about you, is it cold yet where you are?

If you’re new here, I throw this party once a week on Fridays and it runs through the weekend. It’s a place for you find some inspiration and show off your own creativity. At the bottom of this post you’ll find links to a bunch of awesome projects, recipes, crafts, tutorials, and more; feel free to browse around and visit any of the links that interest you! And if you have something of your own that you want to share, just link it up below!


Last week’s party was a huge success, and a ton of great ideas were linked up! Did you see the features I rounded up? I pulled together 7 great Thanksgiving table decorations that you can make yourself, so go check them out!

And in case you missed any of the awesome posts that went up on Practically Functional this week, here’s a quick recap!

The most popular project from last week’s party was How To Fake An Infinity Scarf shared on This Silly Girl’s Life. I love this tutorial; it’s perfect for turning those adorable scarves into infinity scarves without actually sewing anything!


Now on to this week’s party!

Just a few guidelines to keep it fun, friendly, and fair:

  • Feel free to share any of your latest projects, as long as they are your projects! Please don’t link up Etsy shops, giveaways, link parties, etc.
  • Please don’t link up something you’ve shared before: we want to see your new stuff!
  • Help spread the news by grabbing a link party button below!
  • Visit and comment on at least 2 other posts. We all love new visitors, comments, and link party love!
