How To Make a Simple Thanksgiving Bunting

I’ve always loved Thanksgiving, but I think the older I get, the more I really love it.  Probably because it’s a whole month dedicated to being with family and reflecting on what we’re thankful for–like Christmas, without the distraction of gifts.  Let me clarify, I still LIVE for Christmas, but I’ve been really excited this year to move on from Halloween and get my Thanksgiving decorations up and focus on family and blessings.

However, we’ll be heading out of town for the Christmas holiday this year, which means my Thanksgiving won’t be up for long.  I like to decorate for Christmas early on the years we are out of town so I get the maximum enjoyment out of my decked halls, so I decided to go simple for Thanksgiving.  Who am I kidding? Simple holiday decorating seems to be the name of the game for me these days–probably because I’m saving it all up for Christmas when I tend to go a little nuts.

So…the Mixed Metals & White went back up {why mess with a good thing?}

With the addition of one of my new favorite decorating accessories: popcorn kernels {they’ll be making another appearance later this week}.


And this super simple bunting:

It literally took me 10 minutes to make.

All you need is:
Old book pages {library book sales are a great source for old books for about $0.25 each}
Gold {or color of choice} chipboard letters
Twine

If you don’t have old book pages, you can age them with coffee or tea like I did for this project.  So, here’s the easy peasy process:

1. Cut your pages.  I cut the margins off, and since my letters weren’t very big, I cut about 1/4 of the length off of the page.
2. Stick your letters on.
3. Poke holes in the corners of each page and thread your twine through.
4. Hang it!

10 minute bunting: DONE AND DONE.
