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.
