Thanks Banner With Vintage Silver

I broke out my huge scrapbook paper supply and was contemplating making a Christmas banner when my daughter said she wanted to make one for Thanksgiving to hang near the kids table.  "Great idea!" I told her, so she debated on what the banner should say (Thanks was the winner since she decided Happy Thanksgiving and Give Thanks were way too long and a block letter G would be too hard to draw)!  Next, she chose six autumn colored papers and started cutting (no measuring, just started snipping away)!  After a few minutes, she got pretty bored and ended up watching me make the cuts and eventually left me alone while she snuck into the other room to watch tv!  Hey - how did her craft turn into my project?! 

After the letters were cut out, I strung a clothesline (from the dollar store) that reminds me of bakers twine on an old wooden board above the back door.  Then I clipped the letters on using old wooden clothes pins and added vintage silver spoons and a creamer and sugar set.  The silver adds some nice bling and using spoons and serving pieces is perfect for the foodie day!
