Dare to DIY: Be Thankful

Happy Monday! Today, I’m participating in my first Dare to DIY event, hosted by Two Twenty One, Decor and the Dog, Maybe Matilda, and Newly Woodwards! Today’s theme is “Be Thankful,” which is obviously fitting since Thanksgiving is just a few days away.

While Thanksgiving isn’t really my holiday, I wanted something simple and easy to put together, but still meaningful. I rummaged through my craft supply bins, and decided on burlap, yarn, stencils, and scrapbook paper.

Then I grabbed a vase, and wrapped it all together!

I don’t really know what you’d call this… but I thought it’d be cool to write things you’re thankful for on strips of paper, drop them in, and read them on Thanksgiving, or just whenever you need a little reminder of all the wonderful things in your life.

Here’s a little Fall vignette I put together, with some pumpkins, acorns, birdy tealight holder, and the corner of my Autumn Subway Canvas:

Are you participating in Dare to DIY? Are you in charge of cooking up a big turducken dinner on Thursday? I’m in charge of vegetable side dishes, so that should be pretty manageable šŸ™‚

    So cute! I love all the texture between the burlap and yarn and paper . . . it came out great. The whole vignette is adorable! What a great way to remember all you’re thankful for. Thanks so much for joining in!
