Thanksgiving Banner Made with doilies

This DIY Thanksgiving banner is REALLY easy to make – only with paper doilies from the dollar store, color, and Mod-hodgepodge!
I’m to be honest – I really don’t like to decorate for parties or holidays. My go-to thing is banners (aka Buntings), because they are simple and long so they cover a large area. You make me Lust without even trying!
This DIY Thanksgiving banner was lighter than normal, AND it’s budget-friendly. All I did was to buy a package of paper doilies and I had to stash the rest of the goodies, the in my. Now I have celebrations, a cute decoration for my Thanksgiving. I think you need to have a Thanksgiving doily banner to . . . here’s how it’s done.
Thanksgiving Banner
Collect These Supplies

paper doilies – are my 6″ round, to save it from a party
Mod hodgepodge of Gold Glitter (you can also use Sparkle or Silver)
FolkArt acrylic paint – coffee bean, Medium Yellow, Pure Orange
Scrapbook paper, teal – a sheet of
Martha Stewart Leaf Punch
Mini Pop Dots
Band coordination – I dollar is about 9′ yellow
craft glue

My paper doilies came from the baking section of the Shop.
Then you get to paint them that is fun. Make sure that you have a piece of paper underneath because of the holes in the doily. I painted on both sides and took three obvious fall colors (a total of nine doilies). Whatever you choose the colors you like.
fold it in half and place them on a ribbon on a long table. This is the phase of planning. Ha!
Glue the ribbon with craft glue. Why not Mod smorgasbord? I found that sticking the tape to my deck, I’d have to have a lot of hodgepodge of more Mod and it soaked the doily. So a thin line of a thick craft glue is a good solution.
Paint a thin layer of Mod-hodgepodge between the doily layers, so that a Mod conglomeration/doily sammich. You can do this with one doily at a time.
Flatten the doily with your brayer. Some Mod-hodgepodge could come; just wipe away. I recommend the Mod-hodgepodge Mat surface for you to clean because it’s non-stick and easy to use.
To your banner super fancy, you’ll paste Mod hodgepodge of glitter on the outside. Simply paint on the doilies and let dry. Then you turn to do the banner on the other side.
I wanted to add a unique touch to my banner. You don’t to this part, but I thought it was funny. I turquoise leaves punched with a leaf punch and cardstock.
Then I added them to my banner, pop-dots.
your Thanksgiving banner is ready to hang and grace the in the vicinity of your Thanksgiving table. You can make it as long or as short as you want (and, of course, use this for a holiday!)
