Quick Craft… Give Thanks Banner

The other night I was browsing Pinterest, as I do often when I get bored and I came across this simple banner perfect for spicing up my mantle for November. It literally cost me only $1! It was as easy as printing a large font, cutting letters out, tracing them to glitter paper from Michael’s (buy one get one free sale right now!), cutting those letters out, and taping them to bakers twine. Voila!

‘Ello Sunshine!

This weekend it’s been forecasted to be in the 80’s! I’m definitely planning to squeeze in a few hours outside enjoying the weather and my newly decorated patio. Last year I made a DIY pallet coffee table for the patio and had a white futon.
