4 DIY Thanksgiving Crafts

4 DIY Thanksgiving Crafts

Over the last 5 days Andrea has been whipping up some amazing DIY Thanksgiving crafts for some local news stations and boy has it been fun to watch! My favorite part of this DIY Thanksgiving craft-a-palooza is how she used The Paint Chip Pals to pick great color stories for each of her centerpieces! The Wine Country Centerpiece My crafty lady used empty wine bottles, corks, burlap and  OrAngie, Yallow and Gaareen for this wine country themed Thanksgiving table scape. She even threw in a sweet crafty tip on how to turn your wine bottles into votive candle holders with a jar lid! The Modern Succulent Centerpiece Succulents are are great addition to modern centerpieces. Keep it simple by using colors from Gaareen and OrAngie! Plus succulents give you a plethora of options for future holidays! And here’s one for the magazines ;) The Squash Mason Jar Centerpiece Squash and skinny orange tapers are a great alternative for your thanksgiving lighting needs. Add a simple floral arrangement with a mason jar wrapped in twine and filled with orange daisies. The Simple Glittery Centerpiece Instead of spending a fortune on flowers we recommend adding a touch of glitter and the vibrant color combo of OrAngie and Gaareen. It’s simple, sweet and best of all cheap! I’m kind of partial to the modern succulent centerpiece!  Which is your favorite?

Get to know the Paint Chip Pals

Meet The Paint Chip Pals Many of you know we’ve been working hard behind the scenes to get the Paint Chip Pals Kickstarter campaign launched. As of this moment we have everything turned into Kickstarter and we’re just waiting (on pins and needles) for their thumbs up before we release it into the wild. I figured since we have some time (and tons of anxiety) I would let you all get to know the Paint Chip Pals a little better! Now just imagine how much happiness hugging a Paint Chip Pal Plush doll would bring you! It looks a lot like this :) For those newer to crowd funding I explain it as an exciting way to support independent designers, creatives and inventors while getting something neat in return! In our case we want to make a bunch of Paint Chip Pal plush dolls but we don’t have the money to fill a large minimum quantity order. By using Kickstarter we can raise the money needed to manufacture the Paint Chip Pals and send them to the people who backed the Kickstarter project! The fail safe is that nobody will be charged a cent if for some freakish reason we don’t reach our funding goal. If we do meet our funding goal (yippee) then you will be charged at the pledge level you chose and then  we send you all of the great things that you pledged for. On top of all that, our backers will also get to follow our journey and help shape where we go in the future! Make sure you are following the Paint Chip Pals on Facebook and Twitter for the...
