DIY Thankful Thanksgiving Sign

‘Tis the season to be thankful! When I made the new Halloween sign for over our fireplace, I knew I wanted to make one for Thanksgiving as well. I used the same technique but instead, I wanted to go for a raw, minimalist design.

A simple Cricut design and some spray paint brought this sign to life. Don’t have a Cricut? Don’t worry! You can easily make this sign using templates from a craft store (or ones you make yourself!) or large stickers.

This project cost me less than $20 and only took 30 minutes. Yes! You read that right. Looking for a quick, last-minute project for Thanksgiving? This is the one for you!

Follow the tutorial below and you’ll be done in no time.

Pumpkin Carving 2018

Avengers Assemble!

For our little pumpkin’s first Halloween, we chose the easy route for Cameron’s costume and bought an outfit on sale from Disney. I’ve always loved their body suit costumes for babies – they are just so cute!

Enter Captain America – saving the world… until naptime.

We used Cam’s costume to guide our pumpkin carving selection. As always, I started with the patterns at Zombie Pumpkins. Every year I use their patterns and they never let me down!

But this year, I made a mistake like I’ve never made before. Keep reading to find out about my total facepalm moment.

Dead and Breakfast Halloween Tour

Welcome, foolish mortals, to the Lawrence Dead & Breakfast.

In an effort to control the amount of decorations we purchase for Halloween, as well as ensure cohesiveness, we decided to pick a theme for our house. Without it, I would probably buy or make every silly, cute, spooky Halloween thing on the planet. Instead, we forced ourselves to narrow it down. The intention is to build up on the decor every year, staying within the aesthetic of the original theme. This helps guide what projects I do too! So, after scouring magazines and Pinterest, we ultimately found our inspiration from this Better Homes & Gardens article. And the Lawrence Dead & Breakfast was born.Read More »
