Thanksgiving is just around the corner but you still have plenty of time to get in a couple of last minute craft projects that will help to add a handmade touch to your Thanksgiving celebration. One of the best ways to add a little handmade touch to your home for the holiday is by making a Thanksgiving banner. Here are three of my favorite Thanksgiving Day banners that you can make.
Sweet Bee Buzzings – Thanksgiving Banner Tutorial
Bethany, who blogs at Sweet Bee Buzzings, has come up with an exceptionally cute Thanksgiving banner that says “Be Thankful” in puffy felt letters hung on string. This is a very simple sewing project that can be done while sitting in front of the television at night. Not only is this a simple project that could be made by someone just learning how to sew, it is also an inexpensive project that only requires felt, embroidery floss, fiber fill, string, scissors, and a needle.

At Second Street: A Creative Blog – Give Thanks Banner

In this tutorial Kalleen shows us how she made her Give Thanks Banner, and the secret behind this banner – it’s a printable.

Nuestras Aventuras en Texas: Fall Mantle and Thanksgiving Banner
Felt is a material that gives craft projects a fall look, and offers plenty of creative opportunities to crafters. This easy to make Fall Mantle and Thanksgiving Banner from Patty at Nuestras Aventuras en Texas is the perfect example of a wonderful craft made from felt. This is another great banner for someone who does not know how to sew to make, since no sewing skills are required. The banner is also inexpensive with the only materials that you need being felt, ric rac, and fabric glue.
