Simple Thanksgiving-Fall Project!

Here is a quick and easy project for somebody if they need a quick fall decoration!

Since I don't have a lot of Thanksgiving decorations out, I went on http://www.wordle.net/ , typed in some Thanksgiving/Fall related words and the name of each of my family members.

Wordle takes what you type in and jumbles it up in various ways....you can mess with the colors or even use custom colors. I printed it out on cardstock, cut it down, stuck it to some scrapbooking paper as a mat, stuck a few fake leaves in there and wallah...easy and cheap. I think it looks good sitting on top of my pellet wood stove!

If you haven't been on wordle yet...a lot of people do it to make gifts for newborn babies or kids. I also be doing a Christmas one, and I'll just swap this one out of the frame and stick the christmas one in.

If you do go to use wordle, a helpful hint is to type the words you want bigger over and over, and it will increase them in size. It took me awhile to figure that out!

Alright well I better get back to work before my family gets home! Hope everybody is having a great day!
