DIY Thanksgiving Banner

Thanksgiving is a holiday I’ve come to truly love. Not only is the gateway to Christmas, but a time when we get to reflect upon our many blessings and celebrate with family, friends and food :)

It’s a pure and simple holiday, and so I made this no fuss banner to cheer on the season:

The saying “grateful prayer and a thankful heart” is from a song in the Mupets Christmas Carol, but I thought it was an appropriate line for Thanksgiving too.

If you want to make this, or a simliar banner all you’ll need is:

3 sheets of cardstock


hole punch


computer + printer (to type out saying)

Simply type out your letters (leave a comment if you want mine), cut them out in a flag shape, punch 2 holes per letter and thread them on some twine. Ta dah, it’ll be done in well under an hour and cost next to nothing…holler!

PS. See those sad little pumpkins? That’s our WHOLE harvest this year, not as successful as we’d hoped :(
