Give Thanks

It is hard to believe that Thanksgiving is only a few days away. As we start to get in the holiday spirit I know I have so much to be thankful for – a wonderful loving and supportive family, healthy children and grandchildren, friends, a job I enjoy, my crafty blogging family, and being saved by the grace of God. This project is a great reminder of how much we have to be thankful for so this holiday season I hope you will all take time to Give Thanks.

This is a fun, easy and quick project. To start I painted the sides and back of my paper mache letters brown. After giving them time to dry I used Mod Podge to adhere my paper, cut around the edges with my exacto knife and sanded the edges to give the letters some texture and smooth my cut edges. I then used brown ink around all the edges.

To decorate my letters I did the following:
G – The paper I used already had a great design so I added a few leaves and burlap

I – I layered several flowers I already had in my stash then used double sided scallop tape and Martha Stewart Fire Opal Glitter. I also added the same glitter to the center of my brad using double sided glue dots.

V – I added a few leaves and burlap

E – Thanks is made using Tim Holtz grunge letters that I ran through my Cuttlebug with an embossing folder then inked them with brown ink. I also added a layered flower with a glitter brad.

That’s it! I added it to my Grandmother’s table with my glitter pumpkins and a vine pumpkin I purchased from Hobby Lobby last year.

Happy Crafting!
