Color Me Thankful

We love the Very Thankful Garland spotted over at My Cakies. Not only is it easy to make one at home, but the bright, bold colors make this project something you'll want to display all year, not just during the holiday season. Don't have a sewing machine on hand? Craft creator Rubyellen offers up alternative methods over at My Cakies.
