Hi everyone! I’m super excited for this years round of Dare to DIY! I participated last year and had such a blast! Today starts the first of 4 weeks of DIY projects and today’s theme is Being Thankful. I personally cannot wait for Thanksgiving to get here but I’m going to be honest, I’m more excited for the Friday after than I am for Thanksgiving itself. Why you ask? Black Friday is the day I put out all my Christmas decorations and for whatever reason I have been itching to get it all out! But enough about decking the halls, it’s still time to be thankful and this year I’ve made a sweet little banner that I’ve displayed in my living room. It’s a great reminder everyday to give thanks for what I have.
This banner was super easy to make. I used my favorite program Print Shop to print the letters (the font I used is Emerald Isle, on card stock) and then cut the shape out.
Then I used the same shape, slightly bigger and traced it on some crazy wrinkled burlap!
Cut and ironed each piece and then hot glued the letters on. Next I flipped them and added a line of hot glue and placed my string across!
I love how it turned out and I’ll probably take it to my parent’s house for our big Thanksgiving feast on Thursday!
Now head on over to Primitive & Proper to check out some more great thankful projects!
