Give Thanks Board Decor

Pin It
This post was originally written for Expressions Vinyl last year, but I wanted to share it with you too!
After taking down my Halloween decorations, I realized that I didn’t really have many decorations for the Fall. I needed something to remind me about Thanksgiving and that I have a lot to be grateful for. That is when I made this!

To make your very own, you will need…
Beige, Light Brown, and Nut Brown vinyl
Transfer tape
Silhouette or Cricut Expression using Sure Cuts a Lot 2
12 inch Styrofoam wreath
 12×14 inch board painted dark brown
leaf garland
12 inch brown satin ribbon
hot glue gun
light brown fabric

    Cut fabric into strips and wrap around your wreath. Put a dot of glue on the wreath every other time you wrap the fabric around.
    Cut the leaves off of your garland.
    Glue leaves on your wreath, overlapping your leaves and mixing up the colors.
    Cut out maple leaves using Sure Cuts a Lot or your Silhouette. If you have a Cricut, you NEED Sure Cuts a Lot. It allows you to cut any image you want! Cut your leaves out on the Nut Brown and Light Brown vinyl. I cut out about ten 2 inch leaves, five 1 inch leaves, and four 4 inch leaves on each color.
    Peel off vinyl and stick it to your brown piece of wood. I wanted it to look like leaves were just randomly falling, so I placed them randomly, mixing the colors and angles.
    Wrap ribbon around the top of your wreath and hot glue to the back of your board, allowing your ribbon to hang over the top of the board. Leave 3-4 inches on the bottom of the board under your wreath.
    Cut out the words “give thanks” on the Beige vinyl measuring about 3×11. I used the font Cafe Rojo. Using transfer tape, put the words on the bottom of your board.
    Now you are ready to either hang it up somewhere or place on an easel.

    Summer Mantel

    Ahh! I can’t even tell you how excited I am that I can now do vignettes on a mantle! I have never had a mantle, until just recently, BUT that is for another post coming up!

    Could you just die over how cute it is? I know Summer doesn’t officially start for a while, but Dave is done with school THIS WEEK!
    I started the mantle by making the wreath. I started wrapping the wreath with the electric blue fabric, then I ran out! So, I finished wrapping it in hot pink fabric. I made lots of felt flowers and added some houndstooth ribbon to the ends.
    I was most excited to add the wood pendants to it that I bought from Pick Your Plum a while back. I painted them, added some vinyl to it, and hung them up with some baker’s twine!
    I picked up some cork topped jars at a yard sale and added some ribbon in one and some vintage straws in the other one. I had a cream soda and looked down at the bottle and realized how stinkin’ cute it was. I sprayed it green and added a little washi tape to it!
    I got this lamp a long time ago and I was so excited to get some use out of it! I had to washi it a little bit first though. I added a vintage mason jar, my owl friend I am totally in love with, and a painted this frame I got at a yard sale to finish it off!
