Supplies you’ll need to make your own DIY Thanksgiving Décor:
- Gather & Give Thanks Sign Kit
- Tobacco Road Voodoo Gel Stain
- Fluff Dixie Belle Chalk Paint
- Terracotta Dixie Belle Chalk Paint
- Paint Brush
- Makeup Sponge
- Starbond Medium Instant Adhesive
- Gator Zip Sander Finishing Tool
- Clear Coat
For this project, you’ll need the Gather & Give Thanks Kit from Twin Knobs Woodworks. This kit comes with all of the blank wooden pieces you need to complete the craft. All you have to do is add paint!
I chose to use the paint colors Fluff and Terracotta from Dixie Belle Chalk Paint. Plus, Tobacco Road Voodoo Gel which is also from Dixie Belle.
Before painting, I taped off the middle section of the base. This will give me a guide for where to apply the paint.
Inside the taped section, I used a paint brush to apply the color Terracotta.
Next, I used a makeup sponge to paint all of the letter cutouts with the color Fluff.
Be sure to use a pouncing motion when applying paint with a sponge.
Once the base portion was dry, I used a sander to lightly distress the area I painted with the color Terracotta.
Then, I applied a layer of Tobacco Road Voodoo Gel over the entire base surface.
This is what it will look like once the gel stain has been applied. Notice how it added some dimension to the orange color in the middle.
Finally, it’s time to glue on the letters. All craft kits from Twin Knobs have etched in guide lines to help when gluing pieces onto their kits.
This is what it will look like once all of the letters are in place.
To finish the project off, I added a clear coat for protection and a cute bow!
This looks great hung on a front door, but you could also hang it on the wall or display it on an easel.
