Garlands are a fun decorating idea for any holiday. You can use them to dress up any room, string them across your mantle, spruce up a bookcase, or welcome guests. I love paper garlands because they are easy to store and don’t have to cost a lot of money.
I love this Give Thanks Glitter Garland from the Pottery Barn Kids fall catalog, but was disappointed when I realized that it was already sold out. Luckily it’s a very easy Thanksgiving craft: just print the free stencils, trace them onto glitter cardstock, cut and tape.
In just a few minutes you can add a little bit of sparkle to your Thanksgiving decor!
I love holiday banners from Pottery Barn and Pottery Barn Kids (check out my Merry Christmas Garland, Easter Bunny Banner tutorial or one of my Halloween banner tutorials). Unfortunately, I do not love paying $22 for a decoration make of card stock and glitter!

Do you mind sharing the Font and Text Size you used on your Silhouette to create these letters? I am wanting to do the same thing but use a different phrase for the season.
Jessica, I used the free font Cairo . You can download it at DaFont. Mine is 450 size type with some distortion to make is wider (I used Photoshop). Using 450-460 size font will get you very close to the same look. I’d love to see a picture of your finished banner. Hope this helps! What phrase are you making?
Thanks so much Bren for the information, I am going to start working on it now 🙂 I am making the saying “Baby Its Cold Outside”. I am going to cut it with gold poster board and attach with red ribbon and wrap it around my Christmas tree this year 🙂 This is my very first project on the Silhouette machine, so wish me luck, and I will share when it’s done!
This sounds so cute! Be careful with a super, brand new sticky mat and thick glitter paper. My paper separated and stuck to the mat. It worked better with a slightly used (less sticky) mat and a double cut.
