Give Thanks! [Tutorial]

I figured I would step away from the Halloween decorations (since I haven’t finished them) and start on some fall decor! Being thankful is one of the best traits to have! Which sometimes I tend to forget to remember! I am thankful for my husband! He is the best thing that has ever happened to me and I am truly blessed! I am also thankful for my amazing family and friends I don't know what I would without them!

So trying to keep on the “thankful” path I figured I would start on my “Thanksgiving” crafts!
Thanks to my dad I just got a lot of wood!

Here is my “Give Thanks” plaque!

I used Burnt Orange and Yellow Ochre paint from Americana and mixed them together…

I painted the board with two coats:

I then used the cricut machine and printed out “GIVE THANKS” in black and the leaf and acorn in brown.

I then used two layers of Modge Podge!

FOOD 064
My husband attached a hook on the back for me so I could either hang it up or lay it against a flat wall!

What are you thankful for?

Enjoy!
