November is my birthday month. And my birthday just so happens to fall around Thanksgiving each year... And sometimes it's even on Thanksgiving, so Turkey Day has always been one of my very favorite holidays. While I'm all in with every holiday, I can't ignore the merits of a day that's less about stuff and more about simply being together. That being said, I do so love to decorate for any and every holiday, and Thanksgiving is not exempt from that. So, I'm always on the lookout for more Thanksgiving ideas.
And while I might not go quite as crazy with the decorations as I do at Christmas, I still like to do a little something-something at Thanksgiving. That, my friends, is where DIY Thanksgiving ideas come into play. There is nothing like a little DIY fun. Am I right?! On that note, I thought I would share some of my favorite easy DIY Thanksgiving ideas with you in case you too were in the mood to start celebrating!
