Give Thanks Banner (Revisited)

Thanksgiving is next week! What the what!?! Crazy right?? Then, we can all decorate for CHRISTMAS!!!
I made this fun little “Give Thanks” banner. I didn’t take too many photos because it is pretty self explanatory and you will want to create it completely to your own taste!
I simply printed off the letters on some cream card stock and cut pennants out of various coordinating scrapbook pages. I punched two holes in the top of the pennants to string the jute through. I hot glued the  pinwheels on and added some rhinestones for some bling! Everything looks better with rhinestones.
TIP: 

Super cute, easy and cheap! All characteristics of my favorite kind of projects!
Are you ready for Thanksgiving next week???
Have a happy week my friends,

Thanksgiving "Give Thanks" sign

Well Fall is in full swing! It’s nice and cool/cold in most areas and the leaves have changed and fallen! I already completed my Fall Mantel but I wanted to make just one more thing to remind us to “Give Thanks” since that is really what Thanksgiving is all about. This is a super easy and quick craft and I think it adds the perfect touch to any mantel, shelf or it would even be perfect on your Thanksgiving dinner table! 
Here’s how it’s done:

1.  I had a piece of 1″x6″x5′ board I purchased from Home Depot a while ago. I measured 26″ long and marked the wood.

2. Next, I took my jigsaw and cut the board on my marking. If you don’t have a jigsaw, Lowe’s and Home Depot will cut wood for you if purchase it in their store. I got my jigsaw at Walmart for around $20 and I love that I have it on hand for quick cuts like this.

3. Then, I painted the board with Folkart Gold Metallic paint with a sponge brush.
4. I used my Silhouette to cut out the “Give Thanks” vinyl decal. If you do not have a vinyl machine, you can purchase the “Give Thanks” vinyl from my shop, here.
5. Finally, apply your vinyl once your paint has dried! DONE! Told ya, easy huh!?

Thanks for stopping by today! Happy Election Day!

Thanksgiving is next week! What the what!?! Crazy right?? Then we can all decorate for CHRISTMAS!!! I’m SO excited for my first White Christmas.

I had it in my living room but I already moved in into my dining room. “Give Thanks” for Thanksgiving just felt more fitting for the kitchen and dining area… and I needed to clear my shelves for my Christmas decor! YAY!!

Are you ready for Thanksgiving next week? My baby turns 3 years old on the 22nd and I can’t decide if I’m excited or sad that he is growing up so quickly!
Have a happy week my friends,

I’m definitely getting into the Thanksgiving mood! The only issue I’m having is that the warm fall colors don’t really “go” with my house so I’m finding (and making!) some decor that coordinates! I thought I’d share this with you all! Here’s a few color options! I am printing the grey and yellow for my living room!
