Happy fall, my crafty friends! Thanksgiving is just around the corner, and I know as the holidays approach we sometimes get into speed crafting mode! I know I certainly do. Instead of rushing this year, I am trying to make projects simpler and easier. So you don’t have to worry about designing complicated projects for Thanksgiving, I have a free file that you can easily cut or transfer to your favorite Darice pallet sign. Use your electronic cutting machine or just plain transfer paper, and this DIY Thanksgiving decoration sign can be completed in just an hour or two!
- Give Thanks SVG Pattern
- Darice Leaf Die Set
- Darice Pallet Wood Sign
- Americana Paint in Yellow Gold and Cotton Ball
- Core’dinations Orange Cardstock
- Stencil Plastic Material or Transfer Paper
- Darice Sponge Paint Brush
- Darice Paper Flowers and Petals
First, paint your wood sign with the Americana gold paint. I have found that gold paint always applies best when you basecoat it with a similar color. Then you only need one coat of metallic paint on top! I used an yellow/orange color for my basecoat, and it gave my sign a nice orange gold hue once I put the metallic paint on top of it.
Next, download the free SVG file. You can print it out with your printer at home and use transfer paper, or use your electronic die-cut machine to make a stencil. I used stencil plastic to cut my own stencil, that way I can use it again and again.
Adhere cardstock leaves and paper flowers to the top right hand corner of your sign. You can apply as many as you like! There are lots of cute paper flowers available from Darice, but you can make your own too!
Since you are cutting or transferring the design, this would make a really fun craft night project with friends. For another sign idea, check out this DIY Thanksgiving decor sign made with scrapbook paper.
