Do you decorate for Fall or Thanksgiving? I have to admit that I don’t decorate as much as I like to. I have a shelf in my frontroom that I decorate and I make a few items for my kitchen table. Today I am going to show you my fall Shelf. It is simple but I love it that way.
First on the shelf I placed a fall leaves swag and white wood fence I bought and painted earlier this year. Then I start adding some of my favorite fall decorations. I put a black crow on the white fence then I put on my most favorite fall piece which is my Scarecrow that I painted. I painted him about 6 years ago and still love him! He is a favorite of mine.
Next I added my pumpkins I made about three years ago.
I love how this all looks together.
I wanted to add a banner below to add my “Give Thanks” phrase. Let me show you how quick and easy this was to make.

I was sent a We R Memory Keepers Banner Punch Board to try out and I have to say I love it! It makes cutting banners so quick and easy.
In the past I would cut banners by hand (and they would be uneven) or I would pull out my Cricut. While I do like my Cricut I don’t always have it out on my craft table. I usually don’t want to pull out the Cricut and my computer to cut out my banners so I end up cutting by hand and they end up uneven. The Banner Punch Board is super handy. I have it on my shelf with my paper cutters so it is easy to pull out and cut my banners in no time.
I cut squares for my banner pieces. the solid colored cardstock was 6×6 and my patterned colored cardstock was 5 1/2 x 5 1/2. I cut the banner pieces out according to the package directions – super easy.
Here is little video showing how to use the Banner Punch Board
Once everything is cut I inked all of the pieces – I just love the wasy it looks. Next adhere the patterned pieces to the solid pieces then punch your hole with the hole puncher that is conveniently on the banner punch board.
I then cut out 10 circles and 10 scallop circles with my circle punches and inked the edges.
Using a pencil I curled the edges of the scallop circles
Adhere the circle onto the scalloped circle then put on the banners and add your letter stickers
I ran butchers twine through the holes to connect the banners then tied some brown ribbon in between each banner. At the last minute I added some fall leaves to tie everything together.
I love how everything comes together!
