I finally made a Thanksgiving Banner for the fireplace (this is for you, Traci). Simple is my theme this year, for Thanksgiving.

I used my Cricut to cut out the leaf shapes and the letters to spell out “Thankful”.

I just used a glue stick to attach the letters to the leaves.

Then I decided to glitter the clothespins to add a little sparkle to the banner. I used a brush to apply the┬ámod podge, you could use regular white glue too. I just had mod podge on hand so that’s what I used.

I sprinkled the glitter on top, then shook the excess off. I love using glitter. It adds something special to crafts and decor.

I only glittered one side of the clothespins since the other side won’t be seen.

I hung the “Thankful” leaves on a piece of twine attached by the glittered clothespins.

I love how it turned out and think it was the perfect touch to the mantel. I hope it reminds us, this season and always, to be thankful for the blessings in our life.

Oh, and don’t forget We’re Organized Wednesday link party will start Wednesday and run through Saturday. There’s a great giveaway too. Hope to see you all at the party!

I love the glitter clothes pins!! They could even be used for other projects when Thanksgiving is over. Thank you for your comment on my blog post. I haven’t lived in Baltimore long, but I do know of Glen Burnie. :)

This is darling! I don’t have a Cricut, but hoping that I can find some leaves already cut at a craft store – maybe in a lightweight foam and try this. Thank you for sharing this – even if it is almost a year later that I am finding it!!!
