Another weekend, another project! This weekend I got my mantel in order for Thanksgiving.
So once Mr. Turkey landed on the Mantel - I had to add more glitz. Now I will be honest with you - I never thought I would ever use the word glitz together with Thanksgiving - but that is what I did!
I used a mix of naturals and glitter!
Using my computer, I printed out a simple saying on Kraft Paper Card stock, cut in in a banner shape, distressed the edges with ink and then added a little more sparkle on the edges with some gold glitter.
I used packing tape to tack down the grapevines to the top edge of my mantel and then used some brown moss to cover up any tape showing.
I would be careful with what you use though- some tapes may pull the paint or finish off of your mantel, this method seems to be fine for the finish on my mantel, but I would hate for anyone to ruin their mantel because of what I was using.
Finishing it all off with a few gold pumpkins, bronze and gold glittered acorns and some gold glitter candles. I used the same ribbon from the wreath to ties bows around the candles, just to tone them down a bit.
For us Thanksgiving is all about Family. We will be gathering with a lot of family next week for great conversation, catching up, some reminiscing, football and of course, food!
I hope you have a very nice Thanksgiving! And don't eat too much!
I will be linking up at the following parties:
