"give thanks" pumpkin garland

i made a garland for thanksgiving last night.
originally i was gonna make them pies, 
which is the reason for the liners, 
but they didn't look like pies...

see?
so i just went with it.
sometimes plans or ideas don't always work out but regardless, 
i like how it came out.

let's see how i did this, 
courtesy of a lot of supplies from one of my fave stores, michael's.
i was putting my halloween decor away when i saw these pumpkins i used for lights. 
i removed them once a year or 2 ago cuz the lights went out and was meaning to replace them.

but hello, 
i never did because they were meant for this garland.

well, ok so i just made that up but it makes sense since i believe everything happens for a reason.



so let's see what i am grateful for:
that delicious food sticker hit the nail on the head!
ummm...not that i am not grateful for my family or the other things such as this:
definitely am grateful for you!




and you are part of that!

soooo many thanks to you.

  1. How cute! What I always like about your projects is that they use the "latest" in that cute crafty stuff you see at Michael's and just HAVE to buy, but don't really know what you'll do with when you get home!
    Funny how I even have those exact same pumpkin light covers - also removed from a string of lights that don't work anymore!

  8. This is really lovely, there's actually a lot of work gone into these isn't there? It shows because they are beautifully finished off, lots of lovely detail.
    I love the fact you just "went with the flow" its always the best way. Sometimes you can imagine a project in your head one way and what you end up with is completely different!
