My 3 Picks (Dare to be Thankful)

I’m not sure I can recall ever turning down or wanting to postpone a delicious meal, but I honestly wish there were a few more weeks before Thanksgiving after seeing all of your links on the Dare to DIY: Be Thankful link party this week. There were seriously dozens of projects I wish I had time to make and enjoy before tomorrow! But it is what it is . . . I guess they’re going on the to-do list for next year.

Here are three of my favorite projects from the link-up:

I love this autumn/Thanksgiving tree from Church Street Designs. Doesn’t it make a fantastic centerpiece on her table? Visit her tutorial to learn how she put it together.

No words for this perfect felted acorn door hanger from Shift Ctrl Art. So simple. So sweet. I love everything about it.

And this mini pods fall wreath from Hip 2 Thrift would be such a lovely addition to anybody’s fall décor. I love all the texture and the warm autumn colors. Beautiful!


Thanks to everyone who linked up—it was truly a pleasure to visit your blogs and check out your work. Make sure to visit Décor and the Dog, NewlyWoodwards, and Two Twenty One to see their features from the linkup. And check out our Dare to DIY Pinterest board for more features and favorites.

Are you hard at work for next week’s dare? The theme is Dare to Entertain . . . the ol’ wheels are turning over here.


  1. That acorn caught my eye, too! Such great projects this week. It's probably good that Thanksgiving is this week, otherwise I'd be working on all these projects instead of not-as-important things like showering and feeding my child. Happy Thanksgiving, friend.

  2. I loved that thanksgiving tree sooo much! Im stumped on my entertain challenge because we arent hosting anything, infact we're going away for thanksgiving so... Ack. Im gonna have to use my noggin!

  3. Yay!! Thanks so much for picking my acorn! What a treat!
    I linked you up with a button in the post over on my site. If you want to link directly to the acorn post, that link is:

    Thank you so much again. Doing the happy dance :)

  5. Thank you sooooo much for featuring my wreath! I feel like a celebrity now!

  6. Great picks. I LOVE that cool thankful tree!
