Thanksgiving Blocks

I was inspired by vintage Thanksgiving images found at Graphicsfairy.com. (More at the end of the blog.) I wanted something fun for my November craft classes but yet affordable .





Needless to say I was able to make this into a fun craft class .














I went to Home Depot and bought some of their discounted wood , took it back to my shop and cut it to a size I thought made a nice set.  I bought 1 x 6 and 1 x 4 boards.  I did 5 x7 boards and 3 x 5 boards. (The boards at HD are actually milled smaller than their listed sizes so a 6 " board is actually 5.5" which was great for my publisher layout.)


I used some Fiddes Rugger Brown wax to give the wood some depth and color. To apply the wax you brush on the wax and then buff it off.










Wax.  Buffed.




After that we decoupage the images to the wood.

More images . These may print out to 5 x7 if you save this image.
These may print 3 x 5 .


Add some embellishments for a little pizzazz. This image is from the class I did and you can see everyone had different ideas of embellishments.



These would look adorable if you  personalize them as seat holders.


 Thanks for stopping in to visit the Coastal Bohemian Blog .

Here's to a Thanksgiving filled with love and  gratitude.
