Thankful Blog Hop

Welcome to My Little Shoebox's November Blog Hop. With Thanksgiving just one week away, I thought I'd create a little home decor piece. Something to remind us of the reason for the celebration. Here's what I came up with.


Give Thanks Wreath




For the base of my wreath, I cut a 12" diameter circle from cardboard. It's actually the cardboard from a pack of cardstock. LOVE to recycle! Then, I covered and embellished it with some My Little Shoebox patterned papers and paper piecings. All of my leaves and flowers are stacked and popped using Pop Dots and Glue Dots.


To give the wreath even more texture, I added in some Natural Jute Ribbon from Really Reasonable Ribbon. I just cut out little squares from the roll and tucked them behind parts of my clusters using some Glue Dots. Another fun little touch are the Chocolate Pearls inside the centers of the sun flowers. You can find a HUGE assortment of these Helmar Pearls in the store at such a great price! I finished off the wreath with some chipboard alphas and more jute ribbon for hanging.



Thanks for popping in from Beckie's blog! Hope you're feeling inspired to create a little Thanksgiving project of your own. Now you can hop on over to Pamela's blog to see what loveliness she has for you. And be sure to leave some love along the way and back at the My Little Shoebox blog to be eligible for today's prize!
