Friends … I am really excited to see your Dare to DIY projects on Monday! As a friendly reminder to get those projects completed, Chelsea, Michelle, Rachel and I are going to post our Dare to DIY projects in advance.
And today is time for
Dare to … be thankful!
DIY a thanksgiving project to remind you to be grateful during this season. Ideas include a Thanksgiving advent calendar, artwork and banners.
I have been really enjoying sign-making since Jen so graciously shared her expertise at our sign-making workshop. So, I decided that a fun turkey sign was in the cards for my project this year. I was inspired by the sign pillow made by Jen in the first year of Dare to DIY. So I used a piece of barn board and the turkey was a template from Martha Stewart.
I went with a gobble message, which reminds me of a song we sang in high school madrigal. “Gobble, gobble, gobble, munch, munch, gobble, gobble chomp…” Every time I pass the sign, I sing the song. Henry loves it.
I used chalkboard paint on the turkey, so I think it will be fun to write messages on it. And it goes great with the spruced-up letterpress tray I shared yesterday.
Let’s just ignore the dying fern. This is what we call an experiment. A failing experiment.
I’m loving my little turkey sign. Perfect for Thanksgiving.
I hope you’ve been working on your projects for the first Dare to DIY – Dare to be … thankful! Come back Monday morning to link up at NewlyWoodwards, Decor and the Dog, Maybe Matilda or Two Twenty One.
