This month Lowe’s challenged their creative network to show off some fall decor that won’t break the bank. Here is what I came up with:
A Thankful Thanksgiving Tablecloth!
This project was inspired by my SIL Becca’s tablecloth she posted about last year- see her tutorial HERE.
I put a little spin on Becca’s idea- instead of me writing all the things we are grateful for, I decided to let the whole family get in on the fun!
Here is how we made it:
1. Head on over to Lowes and pick up a canvas drop cloth, like this one:
This cost around $10 and I might go back and get a couple more to use year-round- I love how they look! They are simple and they have completely finished edges- no heming required!
You can trim it with some pinking shears if it is too long. Right now it hangs a bit longer than I’d like, but I will deal with it because in the future I’ll probably have it on a table that seats 8 so I will need the length.
While at Lowes, I also found these darling lanterns on clearance for only $4! I bought 3, added a couple pumpkins to the inside and topped them with some fall flowers from the dollar store!
Next to these lanterns, I put a small tin of permanent markers on the table for the kids to write all the things they are thankful for when we sit down to eat dinner. They can write the words, or draw a picture!
I hope to add to our lists as the years go on until it looks nearly impossible to find a blank area on the canvas! It could end up being a treasured family heirloom!
As a member of the Lowes Creative Network, I was sent a gift card to purchase the items I used for this project.
