Thanksgiving Napkin Rings DIY

I have never in my life hosted Thanksgiving dinner.  In all honesty, I’m terrified to cook a turkey and have it not come out right.  And with my luck in the kitchen, that is a real possibility.  But, I am trying to overcome that fear so that one day (in the very far future) I can host my very own Thanksgiving dinner.

Because I’m a planner, and because I feel like I need to do at least one Thanksgiving craft this year, I decided to make themed napkin rings and put them away for any future holiday dinner I may host! I don’t know why I’ve never attempted to make these before because they are so easy and give such a nice personal touch to a holiday table.  If you have kids you can even get them involved in picking out the materials to use for this project!  Fun for the whole family, am I right?

Thanksgiving Garland {DIY}


I don’t know about you but I am busy! This time of year is so full of friends and family and celebrating that trying to carve out time for a craft or decorations is as challenging as running a marathon…I kid, but not really. With that said, now is not the time to cut corners. The hours spent baking your leftover Halloween pumpkins into puree for your holiday pie gives you time to reflect on all the things to be thankful for. The care in kneading your homemade rolls gives your mind rest from the everyday as it wanders to all the joy this season brings.

I am guest writer Marcella Rose and I am pretty excited about this timely find since I could not be more excited for my Halloween Soirée this year.  The theme is spiders and I have been going crazy with crafts.  I love a good theme; it gives you a place to land and a place for all the ideas to grow from.  It keeps you centered and it makes one heck of a party and this theme is totally pulling its weight.
