thanksgiving front door

November 2, 2013

I was in a big hurry to get my Thanksgiving ‘wreath’ on my front door yesterday, after all the Halloween festivities were done.  I am really loving this one!  In true Anne fashion, I could not resist some sparkle either.

Still sticking with a look that is a little bit simple, a little bit fancy.

A couple of tips for working with feathers that I learned.  First off, I wanted curly feathers, so I checked out this tutorial on You Tube on curling feathers.  Once curled, I used mod podge to stick my feathers, slathering it on the canvas pretty thick just where the feathers would be.  I gently pressed them on with either my fingers or a toothpick and that was it.  I did try to put mod podge on top and ended up with a sort of Charlie Brown’s Christmas Tree-looking feather.  Not really what I was going for.

Now I am hoping the crazy wind doesn’t blow it right off the door!  Happy November!

    I just love this way of using a frame to showcase a sign and turn it into a wreath. So clever! Pinning!
