As we continue with the festive Crate Harvest undertaking, Marie Lottermoser has come up with a de'lightful tag arrangement creatively situated for the Thanksgiving holiday. It's "homespun" all the way!
I have to admit when it comes to decorating, I am usually the kind of person who skips right from Halloween to Christmas. This year I am taking time out to make some Thanksgiving decorations, and what better place to start than a big pile of leaves from the Open Book collection. There are so many style to choose from including cardstock, vellum, glitter and gold metallic.
I started out by using the leaves to make tags, each one different from the next, but all in the same fall color family. I used a tiny attacher to adhere the leaves, and then added a hanging string through a hole in the top of each tag.
Next, I hung the tags from a strand of lights, which I strung across a piece of barn wood.
You could also use tiny clothes pins or fishing line to hang the tags, but I liked the rustic look of the loose strings. I have to say the metallic and glitter leaves really sparkle in the glow of the lights.
