A 10x10 canvas and a 12x12 sheet of chalkboard paper. I’m itching to get some Thanksgiving décor up. Not that I don’t love Halloween but I think sometimes as artsy craftsy decoratsy peeps, we get ahead of the season and by the time the actual holiday rolls around we’re on to the next.
I wasn’t really sure where I was going with this. Sometimes I know. Sometimes I don’t. But I decided that I wanted these two to go together. Here’s where I ended up:
I used extra strong double sided tape to stick the chalkboard paper to the canvas. Then I got the idea to frame the edges with leaves so I cut a bunch of oak leaves on my Cricut from metallic silver cardstock.
Looked around for something to add and my eyes fell upon my jute twine. Made some spirals and ran the twine around the edges. I’m going for a sparkly Thanksgiving and am in love with tinsel glitter so I covered more leaves with “Champagne” tinsel glitter by Recollections (Michaels). Finished up with some rolled paper roses made from a chocolate brown metallic paper and went around those lightly with chocolate brown glitter glue.
Wrote the year in the middle with a chalkboard marker so I can update it again in the years to come.
