We have kept things very simple around here for Thanksgiving. My daughter and I made a quick DIY banner the other night. With brown lunch bags, a black marker, and black ribbon we were in business. Always a nice reminder to ‘be thankful’ so it makes us happy to look at it.
I free handed the black letters with a marker. I toyed with busting out the Silhouette to cut them out, but to be honest it would have taken me longer to get it out and plug it in then it did to write the letters myself. The subway art was from last year. I keep my holiday printables stacked up in this frame so when I go to switch them out, they are right there.
I had originally planned on using burlap but let me tell you! Brown lunch bags make for a much easier and less messy project. Plus when you have a six year old who is all about tracing and cutting this is a very quick DIY. The new black and white throw below is from Ikea. I have an incurable addiction to stripes and every room must sport them somehow!
What about you? Do you decorate for Thanksgiving or do you go straight for decking the halls? I would love to know. And if you are one for details you will notice our Christmas tree came down. You can see details on the Home Depot blog. And there are AMAZING posts over there from other bloggers. I was blown away by what I saw. Our tree will make it’s grand reappearance next week!
