Thanksgiving, part 1

I've never really decorated for Thanksgiving! I know...but my sweet mother in law started giving us a little decoration for each holiday a couple years ago, and so the decorating bug bit me. I usually just leave all the pumpkin stuff out from Halloween, but I wanted to do a little bit more than that.

I made this cute sign last year. The other side says "Halloween" and I just flip it depending on the holiday. It's all paper cut outs on a thin, extra, wood strip I had in the basement. I mod-podged it all and it does really well in the moisture. Although I don't love the look with's not really fall-y.

I made a simple "harvest" garland..nothing fancy. And printed off these cute sayings from another fellow blogger.
I made these cute stands with supplies from the D.I. The bowl cost $1.00 and $0.50 for the base. It was a cheap gold candle stick. I cleaned of the thick layer of wax, sprayed it cream, and attached it to the bowl with silicone.
Same with this one. Prices and all. This candlestick was white with two blue strips and blue speckles. And then a picture of a chicken in the center. Very country, very old school. Well, a couple layers of spray paint and you get this...
And I filled it with faux leaves and these cute, SUPER easy pumpkins.
Another printable. And a turkey silhouette by me.
Fall leaves. I'm not in love with it will probably change next year.

Smaller turkey on painted wood scrap with cute paper backing. And cute pumpkin paper on another wood scrap with ribbon.
And the beautiful plate my mother in law gave me that started it all....
