DIY Thanksgiving Garland
Thanksgiving is one of those holidays that most of us don’t think of doing any special decorating for, other than a pretty dinner table. However, it can be fun to add a few festive touches to other areas of your home like this DIY “thankful” banner that I made for Oriental Trading’s Fun365.com site.I tend to focus my Thanksgiving decorations around the kitchen area, since that is where all the action is leading up to the big day! I created this simple wood garland that can be hung in the kitchen or dining room. Wherever it is hung, it makes a festive addition to your Thanksgiving meal!
I love crafting with these wood banner squares that come in a pack of 12. I have also made this leafy sun print banner with these before. For Thanksgiving, you could use them to spell any variety of words or sayings. I also added some simple stencils of iconic Thanksgiving shapes like a cornucopia. Get creative making your own version with letter stickers, stencils, and craft paint.
The large size of the banner would make it great for a party or classroom backdrop as well! The sturdiness of the wood squares means they’ll stay looking great for many years to come.
