It is time to start being Thankful and decorating for Thanksgiving Dinner. This is a cute and very easy to make Thanksgiving Pine Cone Banner that I made with my new DIY/Craft contributor Moka.
Supplies & Tools
Pine cones (forage for them outside or pick them up at a craft store)
Sheer White Ribbon
Gold screw eye hooks (I picked mine up at Lowe’s)
Thanksgiving Colored Fabric Squares (2 kinds that complement each other)
Brown & Beige Felt
First, spray the pine cones one at a time with spray glue. Then, sprinkle glitter on the cone or roll it in your hand that is filled with glitter. We did both. Let the cones dry as you work on the letters.
Cut out the felt so that there is more room on the top of the cards and about 1/2 inch around the other sides. Glue the felt onto the cards using felt glue or tacky glue.
We drew the letters on the fabric free hand and then cut it out. If that does now work for you, you can use this method or use a stencil. Cut out the letters and glue them on to the felt cards. Punch holes in the upper corners of the card to string the ribbon through.
After the pine cones are dry, using pliers, screw the eye hooks into the base of the pine cones.
You can see the spacing needed to make the Thanksgiving Pine Cone Banner in the photograph. It’s about an inch between each letter. We cut little pieces of ribbon to tie with bows the pine cones to the long ribbon that will be holding up the banner.
