The muted tones of Fall and Autumn create a cozy feeling in my home, even though I live in Florida. A bit of shimmer and shine never hurts around the holidays, either. This Thanksgiving Gratitude Garland is created with some of my favorite Therm-O-Web products, and I have included two free printable files, so you can make one quickly and easily. Showing and sharing gratitude is always a great way to bond as a family.

Here's how to create a Garland of Thankfulness:
To begin the Thanksgiving Gratitude Garland, gather all supplies. I always start out with a sketch of the project I have in mind, then add notes about surfaces and color swatches. Recording ideas when they pop into my head is super important, so I always have a sketchbook handy. My crafty bestie, Laura Kelly designed a set of Patterned Toner Sheets and Colorful Foil Transfer Sheets this year for Therm-O-Web. The colors and patterns are perfect for any crafting occasion.
Pre-heat the laminator, referring to the directions on the back of the Foil Transfer Sheets. Layer one Toner Sheet on the bottom with one Foil Transfer Sheet on top and run through the laminator, shiny colored side up. Let cool and peel foil from paper to reveal the magic!

Select colors of Tombow Dual Brush Pens that coordinate with the Foil Transfer Sheets. I like to create a color swatch card, and then add a bit of color in a corner, to make sure everything matches up. Color each of the foiled toner sheets with the Dual Brush Pens and wipe any excess ink off the foiled sections with a paper towel. The Toner Sheets are super smooth, so the Dual Brush Pen ink just glides right on. Flip colored and foiled toner sheets over and trace one leaf onto each color. Trace an acorn top and bottom onto the gold and purple papers with the Tombow MONO Twin Permanent Marker. Cut out all patterns with straight scissors.
Attach opposite colors of the acorn tops to the acorn bottoms with iCraft Memory Tape Runner XL. I love all the sparkle and shine that the foil gives to the pattern papers. Select matching colors of Kunin™ Classic Felt® Crafts Cuts.
New to me SpraynBond Basting Adhesive from Therm-O-Web is perfect for attaching the paper patterns to the felt temporarily. Just lightly spray the Basting Adhesive on the back of the paper pattern and press gently onto the Kunin™ Classic Felt® Crafts Cuts. Cut the leaf and acorn shapes out slightly larger than the patterns with a combination of scissors, pinking shears, and scallop shears. When done, simply peel the paper pattern away from the felt, and the Basting Spray leaves no sticky residue on the felt. This is a game-changer for all my felt crafting.
Measure and cut a 48″ length of natural jute twine, and collect 15 mini wooden clothespins. Download and print the Gratitude Garland Prompts below ⇓ onto cream-colored cardstock. Cut out along the guidelines with a paper trimmer. Add your answers to the gratitude prompts with the bullet tip of the Dual Brush Pen. Attach the felt shapes, the foiled paper patterns, and the gratitude prompts to the twine with clothespins. To finish the Thanksgiving Gratitude Garland, cut the leftover felt into small strips, and tie them onto the twine in between the leaves and acorns.
