Thanksgiving is only a few days away so I thought it would be fun to put together this free printable Thanksgiving bunting that you can use to decorate for the holiday and also remind you to be thankful.
It’s really easy to print yourself. All you need to do is buy some 8.5 x 11 cardstock at your local craft store, load up your printer and print this PDF file. Then cut the bunting with scissors or an x-acto knite and punch holes in the top corners of each one. Then you can thread the holes with ribbon or twine.
You can download the PDF here. Enjoy!

I can’t believe it’s Fall already! Fall is definitely my favorite season and if you’re follow my Instagram (@craftypiepress), you’ll noticed that I’ve got the mums and pumpkins out already. Anyway, for this month’s palette I decided to go with jewel tones like gold, eggplant and emerald. You could also add sapphires and rubies.
