Gobble 'Til You Wobble Wine Tag

Maybe you're more of a holiday guest instead of a host.  Instead of being the hostess with the mostest, you can be the guest who's the best with this craft.  Wine is one of the best hostess gifts (in my opinion), and it can be served as part of the Thanksgiving dinner or dessert.  Instead of being that person who brings their wine in the grocery store bag, show your host that you gave it a little extra thought.  If you have a few supplies and a few minutes, you can make this wine tag!

Mason Jar Table Setting

Looking for a rustic way to set your table for Thanksgiving or Christmas dinner?  This is your solution.  Simply get a mason jar, place your napkin creatively inside it, and add your silver wear.  You can place your plate(s) underneath the setting or to the side.  The mason jar can even serve as a water (or other beverage) glass!  If you like the napkin, follow this tutorial and make your own to add that extra special touch.  This cute and simple idea is sure to impress your guests.

Give Thanks Door Tag

As much as I loved all the Fall Wreaths I posted about on Tuesday, I wanted something that wasn't a wreath to decorate my door.  I wanted something simple.  I also wanted to use burlap.  I wanted something unique.  I also wanted something that I could store until next year without damaging it.  I love this project because the beauty is in its simplicity.  Plus, it carries the perfect reminder I often need after a trying day of teaching, give thanks.

Twig Covered Candle Jar

Candles must be on my mind because I have another great candle craft for you.  Instead of fall leaves, you can follow the same instructions but use twigs and small sticks instead.  Just go out and break up some sticks into the size of your jar and glue them on. This candle holder transitions nicely from fall all the way through winter with no additional effort.  You can start making them now as inexpensive gifts for the Holidays.  You can ever tie acorns, holly, evergreen, etc. with your ribbon or twine to give it a personalized touch.   Keep reading for additional pictures!
