{Dare to DIY} Be Thankful

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!

    • Thanks so much! And honestly, it’s really not anyones fault for your Christmas decorations being up other than the calendar because last year at this time Thanksgiving already happened! HAHA
