thanksgiving printable & acorn wall hanging...

I didn't do too much fall decorating this year other than my cute fall wreath.  We're not hosting any Thanksgiving celebrations at our place, so I kept it super simple.  I made an inexpensive wall hanging with clearance rack acorn ornaments and put together a little printable for a frame I had lying around.


You can download the watermark-free printable for free HERE.


If you want to print it to fit in a long frame like mine, save the file to your computer.  Open the file in Acrobat, select print, and choose "tile large pages" in your print options menu.  If you want it to print on one sheet, follow the same steps, but select "shrink to fit" from the options menu.  (Or you can even print a cute Thanksgiving card by selecting "booklet printing"!)

My acorn & oak leaf wall hanging is a cinch to make.  I used a some acorn ornaments from Joann ($1.49 a box!), a dowel, a little paint, some string, and a sheet of scrapbook paper.

I painted my dowel and cut oak leaf shapes out of my paper using my cricut (but this could be done by hand easily.)

I attached my dowel to the wall with mounting tape, then strung my acorn ornaments at varying heights...

And taped my leaves onto the strings wherever I liked...

viola!

It's not a traditional Thanksgiving look, but I like the little pops of color.
