Thankful Wall Banner {Maybe She Made It guest post}

Happy Day Friends!  I’m excited to have a special guest on the blog today…Please welcome Lisa from Mabey She Made It!  I was fortunate enough to sit down next to Lisa at SNAP last Spring.  I couldn’t believe it- I was secretly hoping to run into her.  She has the cutest style…Go check out her sewing tutorials for yourself.  Plus she is remodeling a home and sharing her projects (like this one) along the way…

Hello! I’m Lisa Mabey from Mabey She Made It, a DIY, craft, and sewing blog. I’m so excited to be here at One Krieger Chick today because I love so many things about Ariean’s style and pretty much everything she does!

Today I’m sharing a Thankful wall banner that I created for a little wall right by our front door. It’s really narrow, so not much fits here, but I wanted something to greet my visitors and to make this space a little less boring.

This isn’t a super quick project because I customized all the letters differently, but it definitely wasn’t hard. Follow along as I show you how I did it!

You’ll need:

  • Chipboard rectangles
  • Chipboard letters and shapes
  • Brown and orange paint
  • Assorted autumn scrapbook paper
  • Crop-a-Dile
  • Ribbon, string, and buttons for decorating the letters
  • Adhesives (Mod Podge and glue dots or hot glue gun)

While I’m not going to do a full tutorial for each letter, I’ll walk you through the basics of how I created the whole door hanging.

  1. Adhere your scrapbook paper to the front of your chipboard rectangles. Let dry, and trim any excess.
  2. Cover your chipboard letters with scrapbook paper or by rubbing your letters across an ink pad.
  3. Tie ribbon or string around some of the letters as desired. Thankful Wall Banner | Mabey She Made It | #thankful #papercrafting #thanksgiving
  4. Adhere the letters to the chipboard squares using glue dots or a hot glue gun.
  5. Add buttons, chipboard leaves, paper, and other decorations to the rectangles as desired. Thankful Wall Banner | Mabey She Made It | #thankful #papercrafting #thanksgiving
  6. Using a Crop-a-Dile or other strong hole punch, punch holes in each of the four corners of your chipboard rectangles.
  7. Tie the rectangles together using small lengths of twine or ribbon, and use a longer piece of ribbon to create a hanging loop at the top.
