DIY “Thankful” Thanksgiving Banner

This Thankful banner was easy and fun to make. I actually used a Burlap Scrapbooking Paper Pad by DCWV. It made cutting, designing, sewing, and painting very easy. I also loved that it has a nice thick cardstock quality backing.

DIY thankful banner PPMTo make the flowers – simply take some scrap fabric and lay it flat. Pinch your two fingers right in the middle of the scrap fabric (the size or shape of fabric really doesn’t matter). Start twisting fabric starting from the middle where you are pinching. Once you have the desired look for your flower. Take a needle and thread and secure the flower. You do not need to be a seamstress to make these flowers, simply know how to thread a needle and poke it through fabric until it looks secure. Finally sew flower to the burlap paper.

The bow is made with some scrap fabric. Tied into a bow and sewn to the burlap paper.

This flower was made the same as the others. The only difference is the tule. Simply lay the scrap fabric out flat, place a piece of tule on top, and begin twisting fabric as explained previously. Secure closed with a needle and thread.

The letters were painted on with a stencil and black paint.

Finally with a hole punch add two holes to each banner piece and thread twine through holes. Space the banner pieces about 3-4 inches apart and hang.

Peanut Butter chocolate balls

This chocolately peanut butter treat is insanely easy to make! Not only is it the perfect recipe for your kids to help you make, but they will also be the talk of the party (or whatever event you are making them for!) Just beware – these Chocolate Peanut Butter Bon Bon’s are dangerously delicious and will not do your waistline good!


  • 1 1/4 cup (9 oz) smooth or chunky peanut butter
  • 1 cup bag confectioners sugar
  • 2 TBSP butter, melted
  • 3/4 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips


  1. In a large mixing bowl, mix peanut butter, confectioners sugar and melted butter until the mixture is crumbly.
  2. Line a baking sheet. Roll the peanut butter filling into 1 inch balls. Place in the freezer for 5-10 minutes (this step will make coating with chocolate much easier!)
  3. In a sauce pan fill with water about 1/3 full and bring to a soft boil. Place chocolate in a metal bowl and create a double boiler by placing the metal bowl over the boiling water. Basically you are going to melt the chocolate by the steam of the water boiling below.
  4. Remove the peanut butter balls from the freezer. Insert a toothpick or wooden skewer into a peanut butter ball and then dip it into the chocolate. Cover the entire candy as best you can and quickly replace chocolate covered peanut butter balls to the lined baking sheet or platter.
  5. Refrigerate for approximately 30 minutes or until chocolate has hardened.
