Hi there...let's do a craft, shall we??
I'm not hosting Thanksgiving at my house this year...like I have for the last bunch of years. But I am going someplace fun! So...that makes it ok.
But every year I like to do something fun on the table or with handmade decorations of some sort. So I had this idea to take silhouettes and make a banner.
First gather supplies....
then, hand sketch out your silhouettes. This will take a while, but everything must be done by hand. (Or you can go get them here. :))
Just a side note to tell you how lacking in windows and good lighting the situation here is, here's a snap of where I'm doing this craft. By the balcony doors. There's NO windows in town houses, just f.y.i.
Next trace your people and cut them out of black paper.
Do however many you want, depending on how long your banner is going to be.
Now get your brown paper and cut out rectangles.
Mine are about 5 1/2 in by 6 in.
Then scallop the tops and bottoms with some fancy scissors.
Glue on your people, fold over about a half inch of your rectangle and use your glue stick to glue it over the twine...
Hang it up and smile at it...yeah! What a fun little craft!
Hope you're having a great holiday week.
I have soo much to do today and tomorrow! Better jet!
