Thankful #DCWV

Family gatherings and a mega feast, yes it's almost time for Thanksgiving.  So much to be thankful this year.  As the year comes to an end, Thanksgiving is a good time to reflect and give thanks.  I am so thankful for my family, husband, a circle of frends and ever so grateful everyone is healthy. 

Today I'm sharing Thanksgiving decor using DCWV's The Harvest House 12"x12" Stack.

This year my sister Lu is hosting Thanksgiving.  This home decor piece is a gift for her.  I painted the wood frame by Fab Lab with orange DecoArt paint.  I purchased the wood frame from Joann's during their Fall clearance.  They are no longer available, but the good news they have Christmas theme wood frames available.

I used the Cricut Explore to cut the flowers, leaves and the Thankful.

I used the chevron pattern paper to cover the backside of the pumpkin and adhered the "thankful" with Glue Dots.   I added the leaves to the burlap bow and hot glued it to the frame.  I then realize the bow was missing a little something so I added another bow.  I layered a bow using May Arts leaf linen ribbon and added the flower to the center.  Don't miss out May Arts Black Friday Weekend sale save 20% off their retail shop, The Ribbon Resource. 

Here are a couple of close up photos.

Are you still decorating for the great gathering?  Will you be doing anything different this Thanksgiving or sticking to traditions?

I hope you enjoyed my project and thank you for visiting.
