If you’re anything like me, you’re a Pinterest addict. My numerous boards are filled to the brim with DIY projects and recipes for every season that will supposedly turn my home into a wonderland Joanna Gaines would be proud of. Be it winter, spring, summer or fall, you bet your ass I’m pinning like it’s my job. The only problem? Pinning those projects is about as far as my DIY’ing goes — because I’m less of a Pinterest master and more of a walking Pinterest fail. No joke, almost all my previous ambitions have ended in an ugly-cry.
I’ve recently gotten the itch to whip up some cute Thanksgiving decor, however, and I’ve decided to give things another try. I hopped back on Pinterest and found some easy projects that even the most DIY-challenged person can handle. Yup, these 15 pieces of homemade decor are simple enough for anyone to complete with minimal supplies (or talent) needed.
