Wooden Sign for Thanksgiving | Give Thanks | Lil' Mrs. Tori


Good Morning!

Decorating for Thanksgiving is in full swing over here.  My parents are coming in soon and we always have an early Thanksgiving.  We also end up having Thanksgiving on the day too. So we end up with 2 Thanksgivings.  No one complains! 🙂

This weekend I wanted to spruce up my decor and I made this Give Thanks wooden sign to hang under my fantle (fake mantle).

It was really easy and you can make your own easily!


Craft Plywood (found at my local craft shop)

Wood Stain – I used:

Rust-Oleum 211730 Premium Wood Stains, Dark Walnut

Gold Paint – I used Martha Stewart Living Golden Pearl Specialty Paint

Cream Paint –  I used:

Martha Stewart 32033 2-Ounce Acrylic Satin Paint, Porcelain Doll

Gold Confetti


Circle Foam Brushes

Silhouette Design – Give Thanks / Laurel

First – Download the designs. They look like this.


In the design studio I un-grouped the laurel and separated them so they would cut out in two pieces.

Prep your board. Sand it and stain it. I let mine dry overnight.

How to make the thanksgiving sign.

Usually I would of done the stencil in vinyl. However, it just wasn’t working for me that day. See it all balled up in the corner of the first pic? Yes. I was having a bad day with vinyl. So I used card stock instead. The yellow part is vinyl so it was done half in card stock half in vinyl.  I carefully pounced the gold on the wood.

Placing the Laurel on the sign

I used Martha Stewart Porcelain Doll for my laurel.

Adding confetti to the Thanksgiving sign

The confetti was an after thought but I love it!  I just placed some glue around my board and added my confetti. Done!

The board is so light that I was able to hang it up with two Velcro command strips.

Thankful wooden sign

See how the confetti shines!
