Let's be honest, as much as I wanted to wear a dressy outfit, and as many times as I tried on my leather skater skirt, I realized that for Thanksgiving, it's best to just go casual. After eating a big plate of food (and seconds!) I wanted to just lounge around, be cozy, and hang out with my cousins. Therefore, I chose a casual yet festive outfit that was forgiving at the end of the day.

DIY_Monogram Decoration

Today i'm sharing with you my Thanksgiving DIY project. Being home for the holiday, I wanted to create something festive. With items from Michael's, I created this monogram decoration that reminds me of something you might find at Anthropologie!

You will need:

a letter of your choice made of wood or cardboard a sprig of fake plants, i chose this mixture of green and red that was brushed with bronze paint a matching ribbon scissors a hot glue gun and glue sticks

Snip off individual leaves from your faux branch.

Begin attaching the leaves to the letter with the hot glue. Start on the inside curve and work your way outwards.

Continue gluing each leaf onto the letter. I completed the curved area first and then worked my way down the vertical portion.

After covering the entire letter, attach a ribbon to the back with the glue.

and here's my finished product! enjoy, and Happy Thanksgiving!
