If you haven't guessed already, it's most definitely Christmasland here in the bloggy world. (Me included! I'm beyond ready for Christmastime - the tree is decorated, cards are ordered, our party is planned. The audacity!) Still, I realize that some of you actually enjoy going holiday by holiday. If you're hosting Thanksgiving dinner (I'm not! woot woot!) and need a last minute piece of decor, Spool and Spoon to the rescue! Here's a simple banner that you can DIY in only a couple of minutes.
With just three sheets of paper and a piece of yarn/twine/ribbon, you'll have a simple and festive decoration for your Turkey Day gathering.
2. Print the images (a total of three pages for each phrase) on regular paper or card stock
3. Cut out each pennant carefully
4. Fold over the top 1/2 - 3/4 inch of each and secure with a piece of tape
5. Organize the letters and then thread a length of string/ribbon under the fold of each
6. Hang your banner up and call it a day!
"Be" + Turkey
Cornucopia + GRAT[eful]
[grat]EFUL + Cornucopia
Cornucopia + THAN[kful]
[than]KFUL + Cornucopia
With two pieces of decorative washi tape, I hung the banner over our makeshift buffet in the dining room (formerly an Ikea entertainment center).
If I'm going to be completely honest, I'm just ITCHING to take that baby down. It's super adorbs but I can't wait to hang up some garland in its place.... please make no mention of that to the Thanksgiving Police! In the meantime, I have some sunflowers and mums and fabric pumpkins tucked all around to give the illusion that I'm still digging autumn right now haha.
