One week from today I imagine most of us are going to be elbow deep in stuffing and dough in preparation for the big Thanksgiving feast! As of right now here in our neck of the woods, we’re far more than knee deep in snow so there’s that. The kids are now marking their third snow day in a row and we’re expecting upwards of another 2′ of snow before the storm ends tonight. In case there was any doubt, winter has arrived! For those of you who may also be snowed in where you are, take note – snow days make great craft days! So today I’m sharing a handful of my favorite Thanksgiving DIY ideas, all of which seem to be gilded, glittery or golden in some way or another. Typical, I know. Oh well. You can’t hate a lady for loving all that’s gold, right?
DIY Giving Thanks Golden Leaf Garland | These pretty golden leaves make a gorgeous Thanksgiving backdrop when strung into a garland, but alternately they’re also a lovely way to leave notes of thanks that you can display year after year. So sweet!
DIY Gold Leaf Pine Cone Garland | One of my favorite DIY projects to date, this garland is perfect for Thanksgiving right straight through winter, adding that little bit of sparkle to all your winter parties and holiday soirées!
DIY Gold Geo Napkin Rings | Would you believe me if I told you that these napkin rings are made from cardboard? Because they are! In my opinion that makes them even more beautiful.
DIY Gilded Glitter Pears | These fancy sparkly pears are deceivingly simple to craft and make a perfect centerpiece when grouped together in a pretty bowl. Or use them to dress up each place setting on your Thanksgiving table!
DIY Golden Cupcake Liner Flowers | These awesome cupcake liner flowers require all of three supplies to make and they can be used in so many ways! String them into a garland, use them as a pretty cake or pie topper, or use them scattered along a table as an unexpectedly chic centerpiece.
DIY Gilded Flatware | Get the look of expensive gold flatware at a fraction of the price using spray paint! Your holiday table will be looking jazzy and glam in no time.
