be thankful for the love of pete!

now november is a wonderful month!
i love all the fuzzy family feelings that go along with thanksgiving (aka-food!).
christmas music has started playing.
you get to switch from halloween to fall-ish decor (i love the switch up).
and i have exactly 15 birthdays (including my 2 kids and hubby) this month.
and yes, we will be broke by the end of the month.

so here is a really inexpensive craft!
i made this last year and that is when i started thinking i should start a crafty/thrifty blog.
i made 1 for me, 1 with jen and 1 with summer, one for my mother in law, one for my sister in law and one for my friend shellie.
yup-six!
but i didn't mind at all. the hardest part was waiting for them to dry.

get out some of your big foamy stamps that you got years ago to scrapbook with and never got around to using.
along with some craft paint that may or may not have the lid stuck shut from the last paint job you did 2 years ago.
i got about a yard of burlap (i have a smaller island, but if you need a table runner, make it as big as you'd like)-any color that works for your kitchen or dining room. (i have noticed that there is oranges and reds now...that would look sweet!)
i cut my burlap in half so that i had 2 pieces of 1 yard long burlap.
then stamp away. i would suggest putting some newspaper under your stamping so you don't have a huge clean up.
but hey-if you like cleaning...
i wrote 'thankful', but i'm sure you can write something else.
and the finished project! how adorable is that?
not just adorable-but easy!

Great idea! Can't believe you even bother with fall decorations and don't just go from Halloween to Christmas.... :)
