Thanksgiving is one of my favorite holidays to enjoy with friends and family…and of course, eat! I sometimes feel that, between spooky Halloween decor and festive Christmas, decorating for Thanksgiving is often overlooked. I always try to make a couple new crafts centered around the holiday and this DIY Thanksgiving wall decor pocket is one of my favorites. It’s super easy to make and can be customized to fit any existing decor. So much to be thankful for!
DIY Thanksgiving wall decor supplies:
- Darice Wooden 14 inch Embroidery Hoop
- Natural Darice Burlap – 22 x 35 inches
- Darice Wood Fall Shapes: 12 pieces
- Darice Hot Glue Gun
- Brown Heat Transfer Vinyl
- Cutting Machine
- Sheer Brown Ribbon
Step 1. Open the package of wood fall shapes and begin positioning them how you want them to layout on the pocket. I ended up using all three different shapes but considered using just the leaves and acorns as well. It just kinda depends on what you like!
Step 2. Cut a piece of the burlap to the size of the pocket you want. Make sure the panel is folded over so that you don’t have a raw burlap edge at the top. Using a cutting machine to cut the word “thankful” from the brown heat transfer vinyl.
Step 3. Layout the embroidery hoop and wood cutouts over the burlap pocket to perfectly position the vinyl word in place. Iron in place according to the vinyl instructions.
Step 4. Sandwich the folded burlap panel in between the embroidery hoop rings and tighten screw. Trim away the excess burlap with a pair of sharp scissors and then secure the burlap edge with some hot glue.
Step 5. Flip embroidery hoop right side up and attach the wood cutouts with more hot glue. You can also add glue to the back of the wood cutouts once the front is glued in place.
Step 6. Tie a bow with the ribbon at the top of the embroidery hoop.
Your DIY Thanksgiving wall decor pocket is done! All you need to do is fill with some fall foliage to add a bit of cheer to your holiday!
