Thanksgiving Banner

Pin It

I’ve had fun making a few new decorations for Thanksgiving this year.  After I made the wreath last week, I decided to keep going and make a Thanksgiving “give thanks” banner.

I used the Grateful Glam from Rhonna Designs again.  I just printed the cards and background papers out then glued them to the front of a chipboard banner I already had.

The letters are Tim Holtz grunge board with Martha Stewart glitter applied to the front.

I inked the edges with antique linen distress ink then hung it using some grograin ribbon.

I used some cheap store bought doilies for extra embellishment.

To mix it up a bit, I used some pages from an old dictionary. I was excited to see that there was a photo of a turkey on the T page :)

    Love your banner… as a fellow victim of the TV above the mantel, it’s nice to see how you decorate! Sometimes I’m at a loss around that huge television!

    I HEART banners and this one is adorable. Great job! Wish I had a mantle, we are renting. ugh. :) I think I’ll still make one and hang over a big mirror or something. I’m your newest follower. Jessica

    I love your beautiful setting/banner/wreath on mirror. My daughter usually has Thanksgiving, so often I bring some of the decor, like plate chargers and paper plates. I love your Thankfulness! Your gratitude. My son-in-law gives us the chance to say what we are especially thankful for each year around the table. My daughter is very creative and has recently redone two guest bedrooms (now that her kids are in college, married, et al). One of the rooms is all “CHICAGO.”
