It hardly seems possible that Thanksgiving is next week, but ready or not here she comes!
Today I’m teaming up with a group of super-talented bloggers and Porch.com to bring you a Thanksgiving Home Hop! If you’re visiting for the first time from Hello Lidy, welcome! I hope you’ll come back often! Each participating blogger has been challenged to create a Thanksgiving themed project for under $30! How fun is that?!
I may not really be capable of preparing a Thanksgiving meal, but I’m certainly capable of preparing a table for a Thanksgiving meal! 😉
My DIY Paper Leaf Tree comes in well under the $30 limit, and it makes such a pretty centerpiece for a Thanksgiving table, no?
To make this tree, I ran several different leaf-toned scrapbook papers through my Silhouette Cameo. When I was finished, I decided that I wanted some of the leaves to be cut from book pages and burlap, so I simply traced and cut them by hand. Both methods of leaf-making were easy! I used some ornament hangers to hang each leaf onto some twigs in a blue ball jar.
I used some left-over leaves as place cards, and sprinkled some sequence over the top.
If I were really hosting a Thanksgiving at my house, I think I’d have everybody write something that they were thankful for on each of the leaves. Wouldn’t that be nice?
As I mentioned at the beginning of this post, I’m participating in a Thanksgiving Home Hop today with some pretty amazing ladies! I’m pinching myself, to be honest! 😉 Be sure to head on over to The Happy Housie for the next Thanksgiving Home Hop stop!
Have a great day!
