Give Thanks

 Happy Sunday!
 I don't know about you but I'm coming out of my candy coma from Halloween and am looking towards Thanksgiving now. The temps are cooler and leaves are flying! So, I took down my Halloween decorations and wanted some new home decor items to adorn my mantle. 

I had this beautiful little resin frame from Hobby Lobby. I decided it needed sprucing up.

 It was originally white and very stark.  I used the Scrap Happy Glue and a foam applicator to apply a layer of glue to the peaks of the frame.  I let it dry to tacky feel.  I used the You're So Fine Glitter in Bronze Medal to coat the glue and add some drama to the frame. 

 I used a text patterned paper from Studio Calico and the "Give Thanks" and "Small Celtic Rosette" stamps to create a beautiful message.   The Faber-Castell Design Memory Craft Stamper's Big Brush Pens in Nougat and Scarlet Red were used to stamp the images and words.

The frame has a carved out area for the artwork to go.  I used the One and Only Tape to adhere the paper.  It's easy to apply and is double sided.
I added some linen May Arts ribbon to create a dramatic bow to finish off the decor piece.  It looks great on my mantle and could be used as part of my centerpiece on my dining room table for Thanksgiving!

Thanks for stopping by I hope this inspired you to try some home decor accents for your holiday season.  Enjoy!
