Banners, Blocks, and Blessings

I hope everyone is checking off things on their pre-Thanksgiving to-do list and still having some fun with crafting and decorating. I thought I would share the Thank
sgiving banner previously posted now that it is in its *rightful* place.



I really love how it turned out and guests to the house loved it, too! I made another one that I sent with my sister and a mini version for work. The letters and leaves we're cut from the cricut and the tags were cut with the Fiskars cutting system from way back when before I had a cricut... those older tools do come in handy at times. And on to the next piece of Thanksgiving goodness. I saw this awesome little project at Two Yellow Birds Decor and decoded I absolutely needed to male my own so I did!
They are very randomly sized mostly because these wood pieces were literally scrap and I left then whatever size they were. I painted them while a pizza was in the oven. While they were drying I toyed with letter and word sizing so once the buildings were dry, a little adhesive and they were ready to go! Now onto my last really easy little project. And by easy I mean EASY.
The big secret? All this is is a piece of cardstock, some scrap burlap and a sheet of stickers fromTarget dollar bins a year or so ago... And wala! Kinda cheating, huh? There are so many attractive subway art free printables, but or color printer is nugget and no time to get somewhere to print it... But love it anyway. Happy Friday! Going to link up a few places later but for now its shower and having to the bank before work. Have a great weekend :)
