Thanksgiving Table DIY

Hi Everyone! I’m Conni of Art in the Find and today I’m sharing with you a fun and easy (read: quick and affordable!) DIY for your Thanksgiving table & chairs. The DIY is a Yarn Pendant Banner made out of different colors of yarn. You can find yarn at your local craft store (some of you may have some at home!) for less than $2.00 a roll. (Tip: Buy at least 3 colors to create a great ombre effect.)

We admittedly already put up our tree and most of our Christmas decor (don’t judge), and are getting together with some friends this weekend for a pre-Thanksgiving Thanksgiving dinner. For some reason, I feel so much more excited about the holidays than usual. Perhaps it has to do with having a baby, and it being his first holiday season? Who knows. Regardless, I love that the holidays are here!!

Now, for some favorite links from the week!
