DIY Rustic Thanksgiving Decor!

Welcome November!!!  I’m so excited, apparently I really love November!  LOL.  I’ve been waiting and waiting and waiting and FINALLY IT’S HERE!!!  I love the fall colors and seeing all the things people come up with to decorate!  We began a new tradition of having Thanksgiving at our house, because most of our family is so far away and we know so many people who don’t have somewhere to go.

Last year we had 31 people in our 900 sq ft townhouse!!!  It was PACKED!!!

But, regardless we had a great time and enjoyed the wonderful company!  So today I am posting my first of what I hope to be many pieces of Thanksgiving crafts!

I made it simple.  The simple blessings are the easiest to overlook, so I made this ‘banner’ as simple as possible!  The letters are cut from the Millionaire Cricut Cart at 3 inches (I didn’t cut the background shape) and the banner are from Everyday Paper Dolls, the cheerleader pendant.

If you don’t have a Cricut, don’t worry!  Simply trace the letters onto your paper and cut them out!  Then glue them to a triangle, and continue on!  See, anyone can do it!  It’s a great reminder of the simple things that we often forget to give thanks for!

I hung them with paperclips on the stick and laminated them with liquid laminate.  There are more detailed instruction on the Harvest Blessings post.

I give thanks for that moment and the many others I had similar.
