Without any hesitation all the Halloween decorations were taken down and packed away for next year. On to the next holiday! The stores seem to forget there’s a holiday in November- the Thanksgiving decorations are slim next to none. Motivation for a DIY project!
I searched through Michael’s and piece by piece I found everything I needed for the perfect Thanksgiving decoration.
What you need:
- Two bundles of dried wheat
- 1 small cornucopia
- 1 package of autumn vegetables(found at Michael’s or Target!)
- Two vases of any size
- Vase fillers- pumpkin gems and clear gems
- Gold ribbon
- Unfinished square wood blocks(1 inch or 1 1/2 inch)
- Acrylic paint and paintbrushes
The fun part was painting the blocks. I used Lara’s Crafts 1 inch unfinished square blocks. I drilled a small hole through the top of each, just big enough for the string to fit through.
Block color: Craft smart- burnt sienna
Writing: Americana- sand
Let the blocks dry (~30 minutes) and then string across gold ribbon. Leave enough ribbon on each side to tie around a vase.
I filled the bottom of the vases with a mix of pumpkin gems and clear gems. It’s easier to hold the bundle of dried wheat in the vase first, and then place all the gems around.
Now it’s just a matter of placing everything together! Use the vases to hold up the block letters. Arrange the autumn vegetables in the cornucopia- place on a charger for extra color(I love these gold ones)! Top it off with a bow around the cornucopia too!
