"Give Thanks" Simple Fall Decorating

Hello lovely Blissful and Domestic readers! My name is Janiene and I blog over at A Bunch of Bishops where I share about life, the Lord, homeschooling, crafts and I even share an occasional recipe. I am over the moon to be here with you all today! I am in the throws of decorating my home for the fall season and to start my guest post off right I made a free 8x10 printable for you all! Here is what it looks like...

Want this beautiful "give thanks" printable? Simply click on the printer icon on the bottom of this image...

Now onto my easy peasy fall decorations. I simply hand painted the "give thanks" word art onto brown craft paper and framed it! I am not an artist by any means (as you will see) but I went slowly, used a small fine tipped paintbrush and white acrylic paint and voila! I kind of love it...

I let it dry and I taped the brown kraft paper to the back of the frame. I even added some twine to the back in case I want to hang it somewhere later :)

I cut out some fall leaves from the kraft paper and cut some fabric rectangles and made a quick garland...

When my husband came home his reaction was all the praise I needed, he simply said "WOW, you painted that?" It is not perfectly painted but I don't care, it sure is making me ready for autumn!! YAY!

I hope you too will have fun with some white paint and kraft paper. Also, be sure to print your free "give thanks" word art and frame it for an easy fall decoration!

Thank you Danielle for inviting me to share on your blog today! I had a BLAST!
