Two Minute Thankful Decor...

now, i realize that not everyone has 144 peat pots just sitting
around taking up space { get them HERE ! they literally cost cents...
yes, ¢'s! which is precisely why you will end up buying way more than
you need, like i did! ;} but even if you don't happen to have a gross
of peat could use terra cotta pots...
glass vases...
or perhaps a wooden vessel you have artfully whittled from a tree branch? ;}

this actually takes lazy to a new level...of well, laziness...ahem.
although "taking something to a new level" implies a certain
amount of, that is a poor choice of words since
the exertion level required for this project is a, let's make
that a 0...a -1...hmmmmm....

just pop yourself on over to The Graphics Fairy ...peruse, gather &
print up any of her Thanksgiving prints {the link above will take you
right to the Thanksgiving selection...yes, i did all the work for
is that time of year...and all the "goodwill towards men" is just coursing
through my veins! ;}

then just lash {"affix with string" sounds so boring! ;} them to the vessel
of your choosing! but first you might want to give them a festive
edging! or use an expensive yet fabulous paper punch {i find that i
like to use my expensive punches quite frequently so that i can mentally
amortize their uses over the year and feel that i have made a wise investment! ;}

fill and fluff with bits and bobs...or corks...which actually can bob...

vintage shreds with glittered & decoupaged acorns...
or even something less whimsical/borderline nutty!
{to each their, i went with the whimsical/
borderline nutty! ;}

team them up with your other fall-icious treats to create
a festive vignette in a jiffy with NO sweat equity needed!
after all, you need to save your precious strength for
all the chewing you will be doing on Thursday...followed
by a nap, naturally! ;}
