What is the Dare to DIY Challenge? 

This challenge is the brainchild of NewlyWoodwards.  It is a challenge to motivate us to DIY projects through Thanksgiving and Christmas - and to do it together. Bring on the new DIY blog buddies.

Each week the link party goes live for a Dare to DIY challenge. You can link up as many projects as you wish that correspond with the theme of the week. 

Nov. 19:  Dare to… be thankful!

DIY a thanksgiving project to remind you to be grateful during this season. Ideas include a Thanksgiving advent calendar, artwork and banners.

Nov. 26: Dare to… entertain!

DIY something for your table. This could be something from Thanksgiving table or a new Christmas look. Get creative and use things in new ways. Or go true DIY and make something totally new. Ideas include place mats, table runners, place cards or centerpieces.

Dec. 3:  Dare to… give homemade gifts!

DIY a gift made by you. Nothing is more special to give than something you created. Ideas include bath and body items, kitchen gifts, hand-sewn clothing or home decor. 

Dec. 10:  Dare to… deck the halls!

DIY something new to deck your halls. Did you find something in a catalog that you wish you had? Wreaths, stockings, pillows or advent calendars? Make it! Inspire us all to do the same.
