8 DIYS for adding color this Thanksgiving.


It’s crazy to think just a year ago we hosted Thanksgiving. We had moved to Los Angeles only a couple months before, but we hosted and we had a lovely time. Our home was filled with new & old friends, it was imperfect, but our hearts and tummies were full. Isn’t that part of what Thanksgiving is about, anyway?

As the holiday nears once again I can’t help but think of the table decorations and little ways to make guests feel welcome and at ease. One tip I have, that I learned from this dear heart friend is instead of apologizing for the way something looks in our homes we should be putting the focus on welcoming others in. I just love that, don’t you?

So let’s talk about one of my favorite words: color. If you’re hosting Thanksgiving this year — great news :) — I’ve gathered 8 of my favorite DIY projects from Pinterest (and they’re so easy, let me assure you!) that will add color to your home in a flash. They’re low-cost, multi-purpose and so fun. Even if you don’t think about decorating for Thanksgiving for another week you still have plenty of time to complete these projects.
