Holiday Link-Up | DIY Thanksgiving Decor



Today I'm sharing 1 of my favorite Thanksgiving/fall decorations in our home that is actually a DIY. Now, to some they may not be much but let me tell you, I swear I do not have 1 DIY bone in my body. Not even a little bitty baby toe. These are simple, so simple, but cute! 


Linking up with 4 ladies that I adore today! 


Holiday Linkup

A couple years ago I came across this post (here's another) from Peanut Butter Fingers and I thought "ok, those are cute and I THINK I could manage that" So, I did! My friend Angela and I made some and I enjoy them each year when I get to pull them out with our fall decor. They are cute, simple and affordable. Win.


You'll need:
toilet paper
tissue paper or newspaper
raffia ribbon
a small stick
fabric (approx 22" x 18")




I had to disassemble mine to show you how they're put together, but you can see this post here to see exactly how I laid it all out and assembled it. 

I promise, they're foolproof.

These are the 3 I made. You can create smaller or larger ones but adding more or less paper.


My other favorite DIY decoration in our home is our chalkboard. I LOVE decorating it for each season. It hangs in our entryway and greets our guests as they walk in.

For next months link up, I'll be sharing my favorite Christmas decor DIY with you! 


Are you a DIY pro or intimidated by them like I am?

  2. Those pumpkins are sooooo cute! I consider myself to be somewhat crafty but I'll always jump onboard with an easy DIY project - if it looks that cute and you don't have to spend too much time on it, I'd consider that a win!

  13. I'm sending this to my sister as soon as I'm done typing - she will LOVE this for displays in her vintage shop. What a genius DIY, and you're right - it's foolproof. Also, you need to do a tutorial on how you get your chalk writing to look so awesome.
