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.

  1. how fun! i have been on linky hiatus, but i may need to come back to life for this.

  2. Oh yes! This is going to be so fun! And I've been wanting to make some "thankful" something but just haven't done it, this will be the little kick I need! ;)

    And now I need to tell Jesse to get to work building our new table so I can decorate it!

  3. Consider this added to my blog calendar! Awesome!

  4. I'm concerned that I may be getting in over my head, but oh well! Here's to being creative on a schedule!

  5. This will be my first official challenge. Sounds fun!

  6. Fun idea! I hope I can get my crap together for this. :)

    1. I won't let you drop the ball on this one. I will stalk you.

  7. so fun!! i am always so bad with deadlines though :(!!!

  8. Hmm, I think I could rise to this challenge. However, I might have to skip the give thanks challenge - since our Thanksgiving was a month ago I'm probably not going to be doing any crafts for it. Can I participate in 3/4?

    1. Of course! You can participate in as many as you'd like!

  9. Google brought me to your blog, I was looking for the jackson metal tub chair from world market and your blog popped up! Amazing how we wanted to add these chairs to a farm table as well. So happy I found your blog!

  11. You are making me wish I was at home for the next couple of months so I could play along.

  12. My first big party. Being a wallflower probably isn't an option at this kind of event is it?
