4. Handmade Romance makes these amazing and personalized gift tags!
5. Love these whimsical zebra balloons that Joy found.
Hosting Thanksgiving this year? I am making my grandma’s cherry pie, and bringing a bit of nature inside. Using leaves from your yard for place settings, and garland, is such a great idea! I like keeping the decor simple, so I can focus on the turkey!

Making Fabric Letter Tags is the perfect way to use up leftover fabric scraps. These tags are easy to make and you can customize them with your favorite prints and color palette. The handmade tags can be used for wrapping a gift for a friend or loved one and they can also be used as a way to personalize party favors with the first initial of your guests.
