Thanksgiving DIY

11/23/2011






Remember yesterday's post of stomping through the leaves? Well it gave me a great DIY idea...that is SUPER simple. All you need is a bunch of leaves and black and gold sharpies. You also might want to avoid the ones that you actually stomped on, but it makes a really simple place card (that's also kind of festive).

P.S. We are sending you off for the Thanksgiving holiday the right way...with another giveaway at noon, featuring Our WorkShop! xo

What a great idea! Another idea that continue the leaf theme is get a leaf shaped cookie cutter and cut little leaves out of your extra pie crust and put it on top of your pies. Have a wonderful Thanksgiving!
