Tuesday Tidings-Crafty & Thankful



I signed up to participate in Kim's
Dare to DIY challenge over at Newly Woodwards.
Having just gotten back from vacation,
it seemed unlikely I'd have time to put something together.

While hanging clothes out yesterday,
I was inspired to create a Thanksgiving banner of sorts.
My love for clothespins was all I needed.
Here's an easy way to create a banner for any occasion.
(I apologize for the poor picture quality,
my almost-new camera died during our recent vacation.)



I used clothespins, scrapbook paper, glue stick,
glue gun, scissors and a ribbon
I took from my gift wrapping station.






First I printed out letters to spell out my message
and then used the glue stick to adhere them
to the circle cut-outs.
The hot glue gun worked to keep them on the clothespins.




The ribbon was attached to the chosen surface
and the clothespins simply clip right on it.
