Hi all! Unfortunately, I must make this quick as I need to start my drive into DC any minute now! I’m off to visit friends and cheer on others at the Marine Corp Marathon on Sunday (run, Maffy, RUN!).
To continue sharing the love…I recently came across a few DIY projects that should keep you busy over the weekend and hopefully add a little holiday cheer to your home.
1. First, if you haven’t yet started your Fall décor, this classically simple wreath would be an adorable addition to your front porch:
Found via The Charm of Home. Don’t you just love that burlap ribbon?
If you’d like to add a Thanksgiving twist to the wreath, consider adding faux fruit, such as pears and grapes, instead.
2. This oversized moss letter via Dear Lillie is fabulous! You may have seen similar oversized letters via Pottery Barn – for $79 (not including shipping & handling). Well, Jennifer over at Dear Lilly offers a complete oversized moss letter tutorial…and on a miniscule budget!
3. Speaking of oversized letters, this monogrammed wall hanging would be such a sweet and personal touch to a wall gallery. Tonya over at Love of Family and Home offers her own tutorial.
4. And lastly, these newsprint page candles via The Shabby Creek Cottage would be such a charming touch to any mantle!
You can also consider using vintage sheet music….particularly if you enter my giveaway and win! Yep…
