burlap pillow cover diy Family Memory Banner- a Thanksgiving Craft customized baby gifts

It’;s the perfect time of year to stop and take a minute to count your many blessings. We gathered some friends together for a gratitude blog hop because we wanted to let our families know just how much we love and appreciate them. Check out my project and then visit my friends to see what they created with the “;Gratitude”; theme. There are recipes, printables and family traditions included in this blog hop.

For my Thanksgiving Gratitude Craft I decided to create a Family Memory Banner. ?We have had a lot of milestones happen in our house this year and I know that we have a lot to be thankful for. ?I thought that a banner hanging up with photos of things we did this year would be a great reminder.

To make the banner all you need is some printed photos (Get them off your phone!!!) some scrapooking supplies, twine and clothes pins.

That’;s it! No special techniques required.

Mount the photos on card stock (so they don’;t bend when hung up) then using clothespins simply pin them to your twine! (I attach my twine to my mantel using painters tape)

I added a few little tags and embellishments.

But overall this craft took only about 30 minutes to make. Here are a few more photos!

Hop on over to these fun projects based around the Gratitude theme:

They are our guinea pigs, models, help us when we have last minute deadlines, don’;t blink when we wear yoga pants for two days in a row and stick through the good, the bad and the ugly. We are so grateful for you.

Look at all these pretty faces! So much love in this collage:
