Thankful Banner

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 mod 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.

    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!!!
