Now, for today's Holiday Craftacular blogger, Tee!
Welcome back to the fourth day in our week long Holiday Craftacular link up! I'm Tee and I blog at Beauteeful Living. As a lifestyle and decor blogger, most of my posts relate to family, home renovations, DIY, and decorating. I'm a writer at heart so sprinkled in between my decor-related posts, I enjoy sharing commentary on things going on in my little world. Being a parent definitely keeps things interesting! I hope you'll stop by and visit! Before I share my "Give Thanks Display" for Thanksgiving, I'd like to first share one of my favorite posts that linked up from the last round of the Holiday Craftacular link up. I'm featuring this adorable "Spooktacular Halloween Mantle" from Cat at Pocketful of Posies. Be sure to head over to Cat's blog to check out all the fun details.
Today, I'm sharing an easy tutorial on how I created my "Give Thanks Display" for Thanksgiving.
- Glass vase
- Burlap ribbon (I used one that was 2 inches in height)
- Thin ribbon (I used an orange one to contrast against the burlap)
- Pine cones
- Gift tags
- Small calkboard clip
- Straight pin
STEP ONE Wrap burlap and thin ribbon around vase and secure with straight pin. I tied the thin ribbon to secure it.
STEP TWO Fill glass container with moss.
STEP THREE Place pine cones on top of moss and clip chalkboard onto container. Make sure you've written "Give Thanks" on chalkboard clip first.
STEP FOUR Gather some fall related decor from your home. I framed the word "always" to go with my "give thanks" clip! :)
As a pretty backdrop, I used this rustic picture frame and added some pretty card stock for color.
Here's my completed "Give Thanks" display! I added gift tags so we can write our messages! :)
Want to personalize this project some more? How about some extra credit? You can create cute flags with names of each of your family members! You can get these blank labels from your local Arts and Crafts supply store. Just stick them onto long toothpicks! :)
Here's how my personalized "Give Thanks" display looks. My family of four will be writing about what we're thankful for during the week of Thanksgiving. Okay, my 5 year old will need some help writing but I'm sure her big sister can assist! :)
I hope you've enjoyed this project as much as I've enjoyed sharing it on this Thanksgiving edition of the Holiday Craftacular link up.
Stop by here tomorrow to see what my friend, Reesa from Momma Lew's Blog has created to celebrate Thanksgiving! If you have a Thanksgiving project you'd like to share, please link up below. Thanks! - Tee
