Give Thanks

It's November?  This year seems like it has flown by!  Last week I promised you a link to download the "Give Thanks" bunting that I had made for my mantle.  Here's the promised link to Polka Dot Pixel's blog post (under the kit preview is a link for the freebie).  I've also taken a shot of the updated bunting.  The last one I made, I just couldn't see the letters well enough.  So, below is the bunting that is available for download:

In the download there is a different option for what goes in between the two words as well.  Download the printable and unzip the file.  Inside there will be six pages of bunting to print (two triangles per page).  Print them out and then cut out around each triangle. Be sure that at the top you leave some white edge that will lip over the yarn.  Like this:

Then, all you do is find some yarn, fold the top lip down, and tape it over the yarn.  I taped the yarn to the back and then taped the lip over the yarn so that the paper wouldn't move.  I have more work to do with the mantle, but it's the beginning of the month!  I have time, right?!?! 

I leave you with pics of my monsters last night on Halloween.  Thunder and lightning rolled through about 20 minutes before Begger's Night was supposed to begin! Thankfully, the storm stopped just in time and the kids had tons of fun! 
Thankfully, Rapunzel was ok with having the sweats on (this was not the case earlier this month!).  It was SO COLD in Ohio last night!
