Back in the Spring, I found a new use for an old shutter. I’m getting a lot of mileage out of that old shutter because I gave it a new, fall, look. I simply switched out the Spring banner for a Thankful banner – perfect for Thanksgiving. Maybe you’ll want to make a quick and easy Thankful Banner for your Thanksgiving Day decor, too. I promise, it really IS fast and easy.
I made the banner using my Silhouette. I created the banner shapes in Silhouette Studio and am happy to share the cutting files with you. You’ll find links to download the files at the end of this post.
Since I seem to have quite the collection of scrap book paper and card stock, it was a great way to use up some of it. I used a light brown American Crafts 80# card stock for the background banner and a patterned paper from Bella Blvd called Thankful.
I cut the letters out of Silhouette’s black Adhesive Card Stock.
My home is already decorated for fall and this will make a nice Thanksgiving Day addition to the existing Fall decor.
I’ll probably just make a few adjustments to the top of the bookcase that is my faux mantel.
