I never decorate for Thanksgiving. I typically use the time between Halloween and Christmas to mentally prepare myself for the madness that is decorating for Christmas. But I whipped up a small Thanksgiving project for the ‘be thankful’ portion of the Dare to DIY series I’m co-hosting with Kim, Michelle, and Rachel. And I knew the perfect place for my creation– on the card catalog, of course.
Honestly, I wanted the bunting to say ‘give turkey’ but I figured ‘give thanks’ was a more practical approach.
This project was pretty easy to execute and took about an hour to make. I used leftover burlap from my ruffled burlap table runner project and a bunting template, which I edited because I have perfection issues, for the the bunting flags. The letters were stenciled on with acrylic paint . The stencils were created with my Silhouette (speaking of Silhouettes, have you entered the Silhouette giveaway?). And I hot glued the flags to grosgrain ribbon. I had all the materials on hand so I spent a whopping $0 to create this festive burlap bunting.
I think it looks pretty good tied onto the card catalog. But then again I think you could tie underwear to the card catalog and it would still look good. It’s like Channing Tatum. That man would look smokin’ in a potato sack. Or underwear. Or burlap bunting.
Jack even agrees that the bunting looks great on the card catalog. And he’s picky about his endorsements.
