Burlap Bunting with a "Thankful" Message

Saturday, November 15, 2014

I am thankful.

As much as I enjoy Christmas, I believe that Thanksgiving is my favorite holiday. It's all about being thankful to God for His blessings and provisions, gathering up and loving on those He has given us, whether family or friend, and enjoying delicious food.
I created a burlap bunting with a "thankful" message that hangs over my fireplace. It was a quick and easy project. I simply cut triangles from burlap, stenciled the letters on with craft paint and then hot glued the burlap to vintage seam binding. Taa Daa!
 I used old mouthpieces from band instruments that I picked up at a flea market as my anchors to hold the bunting.

Be thankful!

Here's a Heart Rock for your Pocket:
Sing and make music from your heart to the Lord, always giving thanks to God the Father for everything, in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ. Ephesians 5:19-20

Wishing you God's Best,
