Watch it. Humor me. Be glad you don't live close enough for me to force you to watch the whole movie with me. But seriously, if you've never seen the movie go watch it. Do it now.
Okay, back to "Dare to Do it Yourself"
When I started thinking about the first challenge, I just wasn't sure. I searched Pinterest. I thought really hard. I was already so in love with my fall mantle. I mean serious love. It's the first year I've decorated for fall and I was pretty impressed with myself.
I thought it was pretty darn snazzy. Well, until my pumpkins started caving in. There were some issues. So by Saturday, the argyle pumpkin and the big orange pumpkin had gone in the trash. That left me with just the mantle to work with. I was most in love with my little leaf canvas so I worked with that a little.
I grabbed a tiny wooden plaque at JoAnn's. I painted it cream. I thought about brown for a long time but our mantle is brown and I was afraid it would blend in too much so cream it was. Then I pulled out my bottle of brown craft paint and a small paintbrush and just freehanded the word "thanks" onto my piece of wood. I'm not 100% happy with it, I feel like it could've been a little better but it'll do.
So, not too bad. I do love that canvas though, with my brown leaf. And the cute little polk a dot pumpkin. Love it. I guess all in all I'm pretty happy with it. Honestly it's not still out though. We don't host any holidays at our house so the fall has already been packed away and Christmas is starting to sneak out. I may have accidentally put up the tree on Sunday. And now my living room may be covered in glitter. Here's a sneak peek....
It's not quite Christmas yet though. And I do love Thanksgiving. Anybody else making sweet fall/Thanksgiving crafts? Or did you make a better craft than me? Probably so.
