I really loved having a banner on my mantel at Halloween, so I decided to make one for Thanksgiving as well. I was going to write the word "thankful", but that just seemed so long. I decided to make more of a fall banner instead. One with no letters in it!


I cut each flag pennant out of shirt cardboard, and then layered them with scrapbook paper and green paper ribbon. I used my trusty Martha Stewart paper scorer to make the medallions (thanks, Martha!). The adorable acorn buttons and tiny clothespins came from Alpha Stamps, as did the oak leaf cutouts and tiny pinecones. I put a butterfly on one of the pennants just for fun.


One more view:


I had made a bunch of small pennants that I thought I might use on this banner, but the scale was off. Wouldn't you know, I had made eight of them - just enough to write the word "thankful". My mom's had a pretty rough year, but she still manages to have a positive outlook and embrace the good in life. I'm sending this one to her. It should arrive in today's mail.

I've not been into banners, but you might just change my mind!  Yours are just lovely and yours looks so pretty on your mantel.

Thanks, I didn't really think I was into them either, but I really enjoyed having a Halloween banner up all through October. When I took it down, my mantel looked so sad. Cheesy

Your banners both look great. My favorite is the first one because it has many accents.
