{Thanksgiving Pallet Art}

Today I'm sharing a fun DIY pallet art project with you that's perfect to add to your home decor this Thanksgivning!

This project was made in partnership with JoAnn Fabrics but all ideas and opinions are my own.

I wanted to make a little something for our Thanksgiving buffet table this year and this is what I came up with! Let me walk you through how I made this fun little piece of pallet wood and Whoville inspired Thanksgiving tree!

 We have a bunch of salvaged pallets so we're always looking for cool stuff to do with them. Aside from a few items I had around the house, most supplies were purchased at my local JoAnn's. Here is what you'll need to make the sign:
  • piece of pallet wood. Mine is cut to about about 9" long.
  • craft paint in whatever color you choose. I did one very light coat. I wanted a touch a color, but also for the distressed wood to show though.
  • "thanks" letters using some fun scrapbook paper and cut with my Cricut Mini
  • wire letter typography...I got some electrical wire at home depot then covered it with my favorite chunky yarn and a pompom made with my small {pink} Clover pompom maker. Here is a great detailed tutorial on how I did the cursive lettering.
  • once I got the letters covered with yarn I hot glued them onto the pallet and prayed they'd stay standing...and they did yay!
I could not love my little pompom tree more! Here's how I made it...

  • found a milk bottle in my stash which I adore. If you don't have a milk bottle, any vase will do!
  • pom poms! Grab some fall colored yarn scraps and your Clover pompom maker and get cracking. I made 9.
  • I found some sticks in the backyard and hot glued the pompoms to the sticks.
  • Add your pompom sticks to your vase and you're done! 
Head to JoAnn's with this fab coupon and get crafting!

I love the charm and sweetness this will add to our Thanksgiving table!

Have a blessed day friends!

{Chunky Crochet Cowl} ***new crochet pattern***

Hi friends! I hope you're having a great week! I've been in gift making mode for a while and designed a pattern for a chunky cowl. The world's most perfect goes.with.all.the.things accessory. Good news for you...I decided to draft up the pattern to share with you all!

pattern available in my Etsy shop.

This cowl is made with super bulky yarn and a big hook so it comes together really quick. Like under an hour. It uses basic stitches and is great for beginners to crochet. 

I hope you enjoy it!
