Dare to... be Thankful!

As I mentioned, I am participating in the Dare to Do-It-Yourself challenge hosted by NewlyWoodwards. This week, the challenge was to make your own DIY Thanksgiving project.

My project is very quick and very easy.  I actually did this project last year, but I like it so much that I did it again!  I keep all of our wine corks, and so I used those as little sign holders and then wrote Thanksgiving themed messages.  You make small slits using a knife or scissors across the top of the cork, and then you can insert little pieces of paper with whatever you want to write on them.  I chose, "LOVE," "FAMILY," and "GIVE" for our dining room:




And "We are THANKFUL for you!" for our fireplace mantle:




This took about 10 minutes to complete - that's my kind of project!  Are you making any DIY Thanksgiving projects this year?

  5. Thanks everyone! Keri - I love your idea for the photos! I might reuse these particular corks with the photo idea after Thanksgiving.
