I don’t know about you, but my Pinterest feed has been full of beautiful autumn goodness.

Since Thanksgiving weekend is almost two weeks away, I’ve been slowly converting my home into a rustic autumn oasis. Earlier this week, I showed you my Autumn Subway Art (Free Printable) and today I want to share a little tutorial on how you can quickly whip up a gorgeous Thanksgiving banner.

Here’s what you need:

  • Cardstock paper (8 1/2″ x 11″) – at least 6 sheets
  • Ribbon, yarn, or raffia (about 8-12 feet depending on how far apart you want to space the letters)
  • Scissors
  • A craft knife
  • A printer
  • The digital template (click download button)

Some basic instructions:

Download the banner. There are 6 sheets in all.

Print them out on the card stock of your choice. I chose a light tan colour for the letters and an off-white for the leaf.

Cut out every letter with scissors. I left about a 1/4″ trim around each to make it look extra fancy. No need to be particular here… I just eye-balled it.

After you trim each letter, use a craft knife to cut a 1/2″ slit on each side of the letter. Repeat for every letter and leaf used in the banner.

I love the way the banner turned out. It was a simple project and it took less than one hour from start to finish.
