8 DIYs to try before Thanksgiving

Thanksgiving is next week and I have a lot of work to plow through between now and this coming Thursday, but I always have time for a DIY or two. Here are a few projects you should try before Thanksgiving to prep for the holiday…

1. (above) Make one last fall-ish floral arrangement

2. Cute-up your coasters before guests come over for Turkey Day

3. Stitch some napkins for the dinner party

4. Cozy-up your picture frames with yarn

5. Make mini cornucopias favors

6. Print some free gift tags + notecards to tell family your are thankful for them.

7. Whip up a journal you can be thankful for

8. Knit a cord necklace with fabric yarn by the fire. Just for fun.

P.S. I also write for Curbly. Here are my articles from the week…

Have a great weekend!

Really nice ideas for decorating an empty space not only before Thanksgiving.


I really like the mini cornucopias and stitched napkins. All of these are easy enough to do quickly. Great list!
