Getting Ready for Thanksgiving

Well, we are down to the final 3 days before the big Thanksgiving Feast in the USA is upon us.  Time to start pulling out all the Thanksgiving decorations and getting them put up.  Luckily, last year I made quite a few things to help bring the Thanksgiving feeling to our family dinner. Here are some of those projects from 2010:

The mantle banner says Give Thanks. I made it with
various chipboard pieces covered in fall themed patterned paper.
I added a ruffled crepe paper trim around some of the pieces
and them decorated with all kinds of fall ribbons and
embellishments I had collected over the years. 
Loved how it turned out !

I made these special Thanksgiving candles
from glass jar candles I bought at Michaels
and then wrapped a strip of fall paper around the middle.
Then I used the Cricut Lacy Labels and Thanksgiving
cartridge to make these Thanksgiving themed
tags and hung from each with fibers. 
A few pilgrims and indians and some fall foliage scattered
around the table and we had lovely table decor.

For place settings we used gold chargers with our Turkey paper plates. is that for elegance for a crowd? 
My granddaughter and I made the napkin ring holders
our of cardstock and patterned paper rings, a scalloped shaped punchout,
and some felt pilgrims boys and girls in felt we bought at Hobby Lobby.
Tada ! 

So this year, all I need to do is unpack all these handmade gems and set the table !  Come back tomorrow and I will show you what I made for this year's Thanksgiving.
