'Thankful' Banner

Last week as part of my bestie's birthday gift, I made a banner that reads 'Thankful' for her mantle this Thanksgiving season. She really liked it and said as soon as she got home that she had it hung. I have to admit, it turned out super cute and I have another one on my to-do list for my own mantle. I just cut equal rectangles out of burlap, printed fun letters with black ink onto colored card stock, stacked those onto festive scrapbook paper, and went to work on them with my squiggly scissors. After adding a little hot glue to build the layers, the letters were done and ready for stringing with my leather twine. I can't wait to get all of the Fall decorations out, but because we are throwing our annual Halloween party, first thing's first & it's all ghouls and ghosts around here. I hope you like it!

What are your Fall plans...skip straight to Fall decor or take your time & set-up a little fun with Halloween first? I'd love to hear!
