Thanksgiving Table Runner Idea

I don’t know how this happened, but I managed to go this whole month without sharing a single Thanksgiving DIY project. Whoops.

So, here I am, three days before Thanksgiving, sharing a turkey day DIY before everyone starts heading out for the most stuff-tastic day of the year. Don’t worry, I hate myself for using the term stuff-tastic.

Cut Paper Leaves for Thanksgiving

All you need to make your own is an hour or two and a whole lot of paper. There are a couple of additional supplies needed…full supply list here. Then you’ll just need to cut out leaf shapes, add a message (sharing what you’re thankful for this year), fold, and glue. For the full tutorial and more photos, visit my tutorial on Momtastic.

6 (Food) DIYs to Try This Weekend

After last weekend’s trip to Palm Springs and LA, I think I’m going to take it easy this weekend.

So, you can find me hanging out on the couch, taking naps in between binging on holiday movies, and making a few of these DIY food recipes. Jealous? Haha.

Here are 6 (food) DIYs to try this weekend…

1. glazed donuts with macaron sprinkles

2. ice cream cupcakes from High Walls

3. s’more cookie sandwiches

4. mini colorful cookies from Chelsea for Studio DIY

5. wishbone donuts from Ashley for Studio DIY

6. favored sugar popcorn recipe from The Proper Pinwheel

Hope you have a great weekend.



DIY Gift Wrap Ideas

I don’t know about you, but I am definitely ready to get my wrap on, for the holidays.

I’ve started buying wrapping papers and brainstorming some DIY ideas of my own as well…because in my mind, when it comes to gift giving, packaging is almost as important as the gift itself. Almost.

So, I’ve teamed up with Giftry to share some of my favorite DIY gift wrap ideas AND an amazing gift away ($1,000 awesome, to be exact)…
