Thanksgiving Table Decorations

I saw these turkeys and pumpkins on Pinterest and wanted to try and make some for my dining room table. I used the turkey from Celebrate with a Florish and scallop circles from Mini Monograms. I cut off about a half inch from the bottoms, cut a slit up the middle of the scallops, then fit the circle onto the turkey. I should have used heavy cardstock because the thin paper had to be taped at the back of the turkey. The pumpkin is 5 circles, scored in half, then glued together. I think I should have added a few more circles to fill it out. I was a fun, easy, and cheap way to add decorations to my table on short notice.

Fall Banner

I made a banner for my mantle using Birthday Bash for the base, Storybook for the font, Elegant Edges for the scallop circle, and Doodlecharms for the basket & leaves. I also embossed the circles with adds texture. Fast and easy homemade decoration, love it.
