Thanksgiving Decorations~Part 2

Here are the last of our projects from our recent trip to the craft store.

I saw the idea for this Thanksgiving centerpiece in the October issue of Romantic Homes. I have a weakness for anything mossy. :0)

The only things I purchased was the moss and mini pumpkins. The tin bucket was from our prairie day adventure. The pinecones, pine needles, sticks and acorns were collected during a walk in our neighbohood this past Monday!

I can't remember where I saw the idea for this pumpkin runner but it was probably Martha. ;0) Space your mini pumpkins out evenly, wrap wire ribbon in and around them and lay a beaded garland on top. Nice and easy!

I have seen so many lovely Thanksgiving banners lately, so I decided to make one too! I used ribbon to hang it from the mantle.

Kelli, I have to tell you that your mantle is just gorgeous. I wish mine looked like that! I love the wonderful banner you made and the runner and fall container are just beautiful. I think it makes it even more special that you and the girls found a lot of the contents on your walk:) You are soooo talented!

Everything is so pretty. Thanksgiving is barely a blip on the radar in Canada, but it seems to be a big holiday in the USA. I'm enjoying the pictures of blogger's decorations and preparations.

Marci, the banner is made of scrapbook paper (the fall leaf paper) and beige cardstock (the smaller ovals). I printed the letters right onto the cardstock, then cut slits on the sides and theaded the ribbon right through them.

Hi Kelli,
I'm enjoying watching you prepare for the Thanksgiving holiday very much. Everything you are doing is lovely. It all ties together so well and looks welcoming.
I hope you will enjoy planting the pansies you told me about. We are having incredibly rainy weather here. Cold and windy too!
