The Fun In Functional! {Link Party #29}

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

If you’re new here, I throw this party once a week on Wednesdays. It’s a place for you to see some awesome projects and find some inspiration. And if you’re a blogger, you can link up any projects you’ve been working on for the past week and show off your creativity!

Please support the blogging community by clicking through to these projects if you find something that interests you. Your visits are important to the bloggers who share their work here! If you link up to the party this week, comment on a few other blogs as well. There’s no downside to networking with other bloggers and finding new ideas!

Last week’s most popular project was the broken twig tree shared on Lemon Tree Dwelling:

Paper Christmas TreesPinkie For Pink



These little trees are super cute, and easy to make!








I love these nutcrackers! It’s a simple idea, and totally fabulous!









 The Grinch Who Stole Christmas is my favorite Christmas movie, and these teacup headbands are so fun!






3D Paper SnowflakesFinely Ground



Paper snowflakes are always fun, but 3D paper snowflakes are even cooler! They look super complicated, but they’re not(!) and the tutorial is really easy to follow.









Tie Skirt TutorialCrystelle Boutique



This tie skirt is so cool! And the tutorial is great. Plus, I’m loving that cow in the background. :-)







Peppermint Christmas CandiesLove, Pomegranate House



Yum! Cream cheese, butter, sugar, chocolate? Yes please!











Eggnog BreadTwelve O Eight



Eggnog is delicious, so I bet eggnog bread is even better!










Reindeer BottlesThe Pin Junkie



Gah! How cute is this?! JM just bought a few six packs of Christmas beer, maybe I’ll do this as a surprise for him one day. :-)







Snow And Trees OrnamentAlderberry Hill




Very cute! I especially like the little dots of “snow” on the outside, as well as inside.
