Are you looking for unique ways to decorate for Thanksgiving? It can be hard to decorate for Thanksgiving when Christmas is creeping just around the corner and the decorations for Christmas are so much prettier… I think it’s about time we start coming out with cuter Thanksgiving decorations because it isn’t cool that Thanksgiving doesn’t get the credit that it deserves!
Anyway, here’s what you’ll need if you want to make this banner:
- Thick white paper
- A sharpie
- Black string
- Fake flowers (I used magnolias)
- Hot glue gun
- Large roll of Burlap ribbon
Start by cutting the paper into the shape you want and then trace that piece as many times as you need for the whole phrase (in this case 11 times) and cut each one.
I got a little creative and added the little vines, they are so simple but really add a lot of character.
You could get everything you need at Michaels or Hobby Lobby, but incase you were wondering I got a couple of things from other places too. The black string was from Target, I found it in the dollar section a few months back. The Magnolias were from Wallmart, a bouquet of 5 flowers was $3.
Now that you have your letters ready to go, lay out the burlap ribbon and place the string loosely along the top of it. Align your letters with equal spacing between each one and don’t forget to leave room for the flowers on each end. Once your letters and flowers are properly placed you can cut the ends of the burlap to look a little fancier.
Use extra glue for the big flowers to keep them in place. And there you have it, a new unique addition to your fall/Thanksgiving decor!
