Hip Hop: Thanksgiving Table Decor

Happy Hip Hop everyone! :) Today we are all sharing Thanksgiving table decor projects with you. You'll want to start the hop at the Unity Blog. If you came from Jennifer then you are in the right place. :)

I got admit...I didn't know what to do with this one. I just came up blank. I wasn't feeling inspired at all. Happens to us all I guess. So I am not sure how much I love my final project....but it's done, and the kids say it's awesome. :) But they may be a bit biased. Do you think, at this age at least, that kids are like their parents...where they just think everything they do is great? Probably.

So here it is, my project:

I'll start with a pic of it all...



Please excuse the dusty table. I thought it would be better to take my pictures on the outside table then inside. Actually, this table is where I usually take all my pictures of my projects. I just should have wiped it off first. :) My bad.

Let's take a closer look at my centerpiece:



I used the Build a Turkey stamp set and did just that...built a turkey. :) I also stamped a couple leaves from the Simple Blessings stamp set. Then I added some lace, pearls, flowers and the chipboard letters spelling "thankful." Put all that fun stuff inside and there you have it.

Here are some close up's:






And then I also made several place cards to go with it...here are some close up's of a couple of them:




And there you have it. My Thanksgiving table decor. I'm no Martha Stewart. :)

I did use Helmar's adhesive to put it all together, used their Premium Craft Glue...love that stuff, it has replaced my hot glue gun. :)


And now it's time to hop on to the lovely Natalie.

Hope you have a wonderful day!!!!

It's voila, not wah-la. It's a French word, meaning "there it is" or see there.

Haha...thanks "anonymous"...I never knew that. When I was writing I was trying to figure out how I spell it (I say it all the time) and really had no clue. No wonder. :) We are all allowed to look foolish sometimes, right?
