It is officially the Holiday season – yay! Thanksgiving is up next! A holiday that is all about celebrating everything we have and focusing on being truly thankful — LOVE it! Being grateful is oh so important and something I really try to emphasize year round with my girls. Man I love this time of year when we get to re-focus on having an attitude of gratitude. 🙂 I also love decorating for this time of year! Today we’re sharing this darling Thankful sign and paper feather banner.
While decorating for the holidays is fun, sometimes storing the decorations can be a challenge, so we made this sign using the backside of this Trick or Treat sign. Double duty! Yes! We used gold vinyl and the Silhouette to cut the word ‘Thankful.’ Click over to THIS post for the sign tutorial.
Now let’s talk about the feather banner. We cut these feathers on colored card stock using the Silhouette and a Silhouette design file. They are about 4 1/2 inches long. We went with some less traditional Fall colors for the feathers, and we sure love how it turned out! Navy blue, mint green, light coral, and white just became my new favorite colors for Fall. 🙂
and used gold spray paint. Man we love this gold spray paint! (Check out THIS post.)
To string the feathers together, we ran them through the sewing machine. Did you know you could do that?! We sewed paper for THIS banner too. It works really well!
Last, we just taped the string to back of the sign to hold up the banner.
Do you decorate for Thanksgiving? I know I’m pretty excited to get the Christmas stuff up, but I also really love giving Thanksgiving some time in the spotlight. 🙂
