Easy Thanksgiving Sign

I think Thanksgiving sometimes gets lost in the shuffle between Halloween and all of the fun there and Christmas and all the festivity with the Christmas season.  I for one love the fall season and colors so I enjoy decorating and bringing that into my home as long as possible!

This year I really do love gold.  I love the warmth it adds to the oranges, reds and browns.  It is so beautiful.

For this craft you will need

a piece of wood

paint of choice

vinyl of choice

Begin by choosing the size for your wood board.  Mine was 14×11.  Sand it and then paint your color of choice.  Now distress if desired.  I chose not to for this particular piece because I felt like the gold needed the glamour of clean paint.

I then cut out my vinyl with my Silhouette cutting machine.  I love this baby and use it all of the time!  I used gold oracal vinyl and after I created my vinyl, I arranged the letters to fit them all on a 9×12 sheet of vinyl.  I don’t like wasting any!

I used my transfer tape and applied my vinyl to the board after letting it dry for a day.  I love the way that it turned out!  The gold is very classy and stands out against the white beautifully!

Fall flower vase made out of a tin can and jute twine, made the whole thing for under a dollar. Fall Craft ideas, great for Super saturday projects #DIY, #CraftsFall colors are simply stunning, my girls have been busy picking fall leaves and bringing them inside. They wanted  to make a fall bouquet to put on the kitchen table.  We decided to make a twine vase to display the leaves that they just picked outside.  A twine vase can be made rather fast, and is budget friendly way to decorate.Fall flower vase made out of a tin can and jute twine, made the whole thing for under a dollar. Fall Craft ideas, great for Super saturday projects #DIY, #CraftsTo make a twine vase all you need is:

Wash the can and dry it well.  Add a bit of hot glue to the bottom  side of the can, start to wrap the twine around the can.  Glue as you go, make sure the twine is close together so the can does not show thru.  Do this all the way to the top, cut the end and tuck it under the last row. Fill with some water and add branches from your yard for a fall centerpiece that  is rather elegant.  Made for less than a dollar, these would be great to make for a dinner party or other events that need decorated on a budget.

DIY Pumpkin From Canning Jar Bands

Tis the season for lots of canning!  If you have been canning this season, or have canned in the past, you probably have several extra jar bands sitting around the kitchen.

My sister in law recently moved and didn’t want to take all of her extra canning supplies with her, so I inherited it!  Unfortunately, when I opened the good size bag of bands she had given me, many of them were rusty and not necessarily in the best condition to be used for canning anymore.  I couldn’t bare to part with them!  Then I had the greatest idea, I made them into a fall decoration, and now you can too!

You will need:

Canning jar bands that are the same size

Bakers twine or yarn

Scissors to cut the twine

Small branch or paper that can be rolled to resemble a stem

Begin by cutting a piece of your bakers twine that is long enough to get several bands on it with extra room to tie it together at the end.  I would say about a foot long.  I used wide mouth jar bands, but any size will work, just keep them all the same size.

Now you are going to hold one side of the bakers twine, and slide the bands all on the other end but facing the same direction.  Sorry for the blurry photo, but you can see how I would slide a band on and then firmly hold both ends of the twine in my hand to keep them from rolling back off.

Once you have enough bands on to form a circle, (I used about 18) You will want to tie the ends of your bakers twine together tightly. and trim the ends so that the don’t hang out.  Then make sure to arrange them so they form a nice circle.

You will be left with a circle in the middle.  This is the perfect place to add a thick branch or a piece of paper that is rolled into a stem.  What a great, easy, quick project to spruce up your fall decor!

Easy Fall Art Project

Looking for an easy decoration for fall that doesn’t cost you a lot of money?  This little art project is so simple to make, completely customizable and you can add any stencil design so that it is totally one of a kind!

All you need

Canvas

Stencil

Paint in choice of colors as well as a dark paint for the top

paint brushes

mod podge

Easy Fall Art project, #fall, #art, #painting, #canvas, #stencil, #fallart, #easycraftideas, #craftideas, #thriftycrafts, #thriftycraftideas

Begin by painting your canvas in your chosen colors.  Now the important thing here is to be sort of random with your painting. I did stripes so that it wasn’t all one color.  Now, once you have painted your stripes, blend your lines together with your paint brush.  I used the same brush for all of it, and blotted it in between colors so that it wouldn’t end up being a yucky muddy color.

I used paint that I had on hand and wanted it to be fall colors.  I ended up using a burnt orange, mustard yellow and a dark blue.  Now, let your stripes dry good before you do anything else.

Once your paint is dry add a thin coat of mod podge. Use the matte so that it doesn’t leave streaks.  Once you put on your mod podge and let it dry, your canvas will be a little tacky, which makes it easier to apply the stencil.  If you are using vinyl this is especially helpful because the vinyl tends to not stick to the canvas otherwise.  Peel off your stencil and apply to the canvas.  Apply the vinyl as if you were going to keep it on the canvas.  This way when you pull the stencil off, it will leave the colored canvas in it’s place.

Once you get your stencil on, you are ready for a top coat in a dark color.  When painting over your stencil, be sure to blot, DO NOT RUB your paintbrush like you normally would.  If you do this, you will end up either getting paint under your stencil or pulling the stencil up off of the canvas.  Look in the top left corner of the photo above, that is where I accidentally did that very thing.  It is even more important with a canvas because it is already so hard to get the vinyl to stick!

Let the paint dry for a few minutes, and then pull off your stencil.  Use tweezers or something to grab the end to avoid smearing the  paint or getting paint under the stencil.  Just pull it off and toss it.  Once you have done that you are done!  I had a couple of spots with a little bleeding, but I think it adds to it to give it a weathered effect.  What do you think?  This would also be a great craft for the kids.  Let them paint the canvas and add a stencil for them.  They will love the surprise when you pull the stencil off!
