It's mid-November! Where has the time gone? My sweet baby is two-months-old and growing way too fast. In my spare time (ha!) I gathered a few supplies and made this banner. All I needed was some burlap, twine, paint and a sewing machine. Oh, and a sleeping baby so I could put it together!!
It hangs in my kitchen where we can all see it everyday. It's a great reminder that we have much to be thankful for. And with this new season, I am trying to help my kids say THANKS for all that they have.
I used butcher paper to create a simple stencil of each letter. A quick dab of black paint with a stencil brush added the lettering to each triangle of burlap. The fabric pieces are connected with the twine, sewn in place using a zigzag stitch. The dot garland was even easier! I cut out dozens of different colored circles using a 1" and 1.5" circle punch. All that was left was stringing them together using a straight stitch on my sewing machine.
Of course, Lauri had to have one also! She made her own dot garland, with a slight twist.
Wishing you a Thankful November!
