Give Thanks Banner

10 Nov

I decided to make a Thanksgiving banner that coordinated with my Thankful Hearts

I started with old Dictionary pages cut into triangles using pinking shears…

And distressed with tea dye ink…

Click on the images to enlarge them if you’d like to see the detail…

I glued each of the distressed framed letters onto the dictionary pennants…

Lots of glitter and a single rhinestone for each…

Then I put it all together using some vintage lace I had hanging around…


Once I finished the banner, I wanted a couple of Thanksgiving silhouettes to hang it from…

This Pilgrim and Indian were just what I had in mind…


I cut each of the silhouettes out and mounted them onto black cardstock…

Then stuck them into frames…easy peasy…


And here’s the finished product hanging in my Sitting Room…


Wow…it’s really difficult to get a picture of a whole banner… 🙂



It makes me smile every time I walk through the room… 🙂

Would you like to make one for your Thanksgiving celebration?

Here’s all the pieces in a single .png which you can right click on to save…


And here’s the .pdf version if that makes it easier…tlotp-GiveThanksBanner


Enjoy the Party!
