What to Make This Weekend: Giant Party Blowers, Mini Cornucopias + More

Before you start stressing about the fact Thanksgiving is next week, give yourself a creative break. Get a head start on your guest bedroom decor, whip up a pumpkin pie and DIY something super festive for your dinner table. Don’t worry — none of the projects here will take up more than a couple of hours, so you’ve still got plenty of time to brunch, sleep in and catch up on your fave show. Whether you’re in the mood to make something teeny tiny or something a little more ambitious, these 10 DIY projects are just the thing to entertain you over the weekend.

1. DIY Mini Dip-Dye Cornucopias: If you haven’t hopped on the mini home decor trend yet, you’re missing out on some serious cuteness. These teeny cornucopias are super easy to make and you can personalize the color palette to perfectly coordinate with your Thanksgiving decorations. (via Brit + Co)

2. DIY Giant Party Blowers: You know you’re going to have a good time armed with these giant party blowers and maybe a confetti cannon or two. Start saving up your cardboard tubes so you can line your dinner table and set up a photo booth station. (via Oh Happy Day)

3. DIY Paper Leaf Wreath: These wreaths are bright and colorful, and easily make the transition from fall to holiday decor. Skip the faux leaves and spruce up your front door with a chic paper option that’s a breeze to put together. (via Damask Love)

4. DIY Pie Boxes: When it comes to hosting Friendsgiving, the number one rule is to have plenty of food, wine and pie on hand. Especially pie. That leaves you with plenty of leftovers to hand out after dinner. Put together a batch of these pretty pie boxes and send home a slice for your friends to snack on later. (via Brit + Co)

5. DIY Accessorized Bags: The only thing better than a cute bag is one with a personalized gold letter addition. This is a crazy easy DIY that would be great for decorating bridesmaid gifts, wedding favors or your own makeup bag. ‘Tis the season to treat yo’ self, after all. (via Sugar & Cloth)

6. DIY Printable Thanksgiving Menus: Still looking for the perfect way to show off your rad Thanksgiving menu? Look no further than your printer for a pretty menu that’ll take your table decor to the next level. (via Oh Happy Day)

7. DIY Holiday Party Dress: When it comes to winter fashion, sometimes it’s hard to choose between style and warmth. This year, look really good AND be super cozy in a pretty DIY dress. Seriously, those open shoulder cutouts are just what your wardrobe needs this holiday season. (via Brit + Co)

8. DIY Indigo Bolster Pillow: Ready to get your dye on? Indigo is such a gorgeous color any time of year, but throw in some faux fur and a chunky woven throw and you’ve got the perfect recipe for a guest bedroom that’s cozy AF. (via A Beautiful Mess)

9. DIY Luggage Rack: Whether you’re getting your guest room ready for the holidays or you just need some extra storage in your foyer, this little luggage rack could be a real life saver. Dress up a plain luggage rack with a comfy cushion and some sassy fringe. (via Damask Love)

10. DIY Mini Pumpkin Pie Fudge: It looks like pumpkin pie, tastes like pumpkin pie, but this mini “pie” is actually fudge. Um, YUM. Add a dollop of whipped cream to each teeny slice and you’ve got an adorable mini dessert to add to your Friendsgiving festivities. (via Studio DIY)
