Give Thanks- a Thanksgiving craft

My crafting bug continues! 
After Halloween, I felt like I had to take down the BOO sign. Which left a blank white empty space.
Excuse for another craft?? I think so 🙂
Black Paint 
(any will do, chalkboard was just what I had)
 White Paint Pen
Saw-tooth hanger
 and some kind of Ribbon 
(I used tulle, but I really wanted to use burlap)
I looped the tulle and tied it in a knot. Then I hammered in the sawtooth hanger with the knot below it.
I added the bow after the fact with some extra tulle because bows make everything better…
I loved painting this! It reminded me of my high school days of art class.
Happy Month of Thanksgiving!
P.S. If I started an etsy shop, do you think anybody would buy something like this?? 
Hubby is trying to convince me to start one.

    I think an Etsy shop is a great idea! For people like me, who lack the crafty gene, we'd love to have things like this in our homes. Great job!

    Elise, I love this! I have no idea how you can write that well with a paint pen- it looks beautiful!! I would totally buy one of these if you opened up a shop! xo Jessica

    I was wondering if you freehand your lettering or use a stencil?

  11. Elise Hunter on September 23, 2014 at 9:36 pm

    It's freehanded:)
