When Halloween is over & Dia de los Muertos has passed I decorate for Thanksgiving which seems to be the forgotten holiday sometimes. I say forgotten because our town has already started decorating outside for Christmas. I turn the styrofoam orange pumpkins around so you do not see the carved images and use them as Thanksgiving decor. I then decorate with scarecrow theme.
Here is one of the scarecrow decorations I made. The base is a plastic container I recycled and covered with crocheted Autumn ombre yarn. Decorated with Thanksgiving picks: acorn, pumpkin & scarecrow. Added buttons to scarecrow. Used Tim Holtz leaf die. Stamped Inky Antics sentiment on leaf. Added raffia.
adhesive: glue dots
ink: Memento Rich Cocoa
machine: Tim Holtz Vagabond
other: acorn, pumpkin, raffia, scarecrow, yarn
recycle: plastic container as base covered with crochet yarn
stamp: Inky Antics Harvest Mouse - sentiment 'Happy Thanksgiving'
Tim Holtz: cardstock - core'dinations - orange die - Tattered Leaves
