It’s coming….and it comes faster each year. The HOLIDAYS! Let’s discuss this for a minute…you just planned yesterday’s Halloween party (that was a mighty fine shin-dig) and think you are good from party planning for another year.
You get to bask in the fall sun, kick up your feet for a bit and eat pumpkin chocolate chip cookies until nap time…sure. Let’s dream.
Well, we all know how that works. Because you are so good at party planning you get volunteered to do the next party which includes one little extra thing…Thanksgiving dinner!
Money is tight because you just spent it in making a ton of cookies. Yes, it’s well worth the cost of pumpkin and chocolate chips, but a Thanksgiving dinner is next on the plan and you need to make the decor for super de-duper cheap.
Remember that little thing that you have or your friend has? The silhouette? I’ll tell ya what…it’ll save your budget this year as you create and fancify up the holiday season.
So lets get on with this functional thanksgiving center piece that can be created for just a few bucks, but that is fast and easy so you can get back to your cookies!
Okie dokie…grab those canning jars that have been sitting on your top shelf getting dusty. You’ll need some vinyl (make sure to check out vinyloutlet.net. They have great prices!), backing paper and jute ribbon.
The designs we found in the silhouette shop. Cut out your shapes.
And put the transfer paper over the top. Big fan of transfer paper. It makes vinyl application so SO much easier. Blue painters tape will also do the trick if the print is small. Note*** You won’t be able to see through the painters tape like you will the transfer paper.
Slice and dice to make this job easy.
Apply to the back of the mason jars…as the front may have the brand name on it.
Remove the transfer paper.
Grab your jute ribbon…you can buy it by the roll or cut it up yourself.
Tie a knot.
Tie 3 knots.
Display in a super cute chicken wire basket that you may possibly have around. If not, just display on the table.
Complete. Simple and created for under a few dollars. Loving it.
