Gratitude Banner

burlap, gratitude

Thanksgiving?!  The forgotten holiday.  Isn't that what it seems like?  We get so excited for Fall and all the fun holidays that start in Fall and then carry us through the winter.  Halloween is what starts us off and then it seems that when Halloween is over we jump right to Christmas.  This is so sad because Thanksgiving is a great holiday to reflect on all the good in our lives.  It is a holiday to focus on things we are grateful or thankful for.  

Since it is so easy to forget I had to come up with something that I would see every single day.  Something that was bigger than a small decoration that can be overlooked.  I wanted my home to show that we love Thanksgiving and that we did not forget this great holiday.  

That is when I came up with the idea of a Thanksgiving banner.  I wanted it to be simple and fit in great with my Fall decor.  I didn't know what word I wanted to put on it and then it came to me.  Gratitude.  So I got right to work so I could enjoy this great banner for the whole month of November.

See the full tutorial on The Mama's Girls blog!  I am guest posting on their blog.  I loved being a guest over there since they have such an awesome blog.  While you are over there stay awhile and check out their fantastic posts.  

Make this burlap Thanksgiving banner with only 5 simple supplies.

So instead of Thanksgiving being the forgotten holiday, I hope it is one of our favorite holidays this season.  This banner will help me remember to have gratitude in my heart throughout November.

P.S. I know I have been a little MIA lately.  My life has been turned upside down lately.  I will write about it soon.  I have so much to post about and I want to be more present with this blog, but I have to take care of some things in my life first.  Be patient.  Please keep coming back!
