Welcome to the Everything Thanksgiving Linky party!

So glad you came!
We have several Canadian Hemlock trees in our backyard that are full of miniature pinecones. While they’re really cute, their small size makes them difficult to use in crafts. But they were the perfect embellishment for a Thanksgiving banner I made for the fireplace.

First I cut the triangles of burlap. Next, I free handed the letters with a black marker and glued them to a long length of twine. I added pinecones all along the twine and created tassels at the ends with large pinecones.

Gathered items from around the house complete the mantle. The bronze Quail were my Moms. The pitchers, wooden pedestal and frames all came from thrift shops. The praying hands are one of my thrift store treasures, they look so real and are a perfect accent for Thanksgiving.

I added sheet music to the mirror and some sheet music cones to a pitcher.

    Using the natural things around your own home is extra special. Love the banner and all the Thanksgiving beautiful and thoughtful mantel decorating. Wonder what I can do with those spruce pine cones lying all over the place…

    (Linky didn't love me this morning. It never would open my files for me to even select my thumbnail, hence the automatic, truly unattractive one. =) )

    Have a lot of fun today, Debbie!
