Velvet Acorns

This fast project is perfect to add to your 
Thanksgiving table, Glitterinas!

Gather up some empty acorn hats....

This is a wonderful job for  
helpful littles.

Pick out some pom poms that 
are fall colors....

....glue the two together....


Tah Dah....

Velvet Acorns!

I used hot glue around the 
circular edge of each acorn hat 
to attach the pom pom.

Here's a look at the ones I made....

.....a triple hat...

....and the big 
mamma jamma

(thank you Robbi for adding that term to my 
vocabulary a hundred years ago)

.....five hats on one stem!

These look cute on the table just
scattered around.

They also look good in 
pretty, little bowls.

You could pile them in 
a tea cup, or place one 
at each person's place for 
a little favor to take home!

Give these a try and scatter them around your 
Thanksgiving table.

Little velvet acorns will add
a fun touch to your holiday table.

Leave me a note and let me know 
what you think about 
these little cuties!

Share a picture if you give this project a try....

Thanks, Glitterinas!

Happy Thanksgiving,

A Touch of Thanksgiving!

Welcome, Glitterinas!

With Halloween all packed away, it's time to 
begin getting ready for

What a wonderful time of year.....

a time when we gather with family and friends 
 eat a meal, 
talk and laugh, 
watch a parade and wave at Santa,
watch some football,
eat some dessert,
and think about all the things we have to be thankful for!

I enjoy creating a seasonal tablescape and
using my pretty Thanksgiving plates 
to set the dining room table.

When all the leaves are in the dining room table 
we can seat lots of friends and family.

I am using a 
cream colored table cloth with
lots of pretty fall leaves on it.

Top this with a burlap runner.

Then I gathered up an assortment 
of ribbon to make bows for..... new lanterns!

Snip, snip, gather and tie.....
here's the tall lantern with it's bow!

I also added a colorful leaf.

Snip, snip, gather and tie, again.....

.....and here's the smaller lantern with it's

I like the way they look.

What do you think, Glitterinas?

Switch on the candles.....

....and add two small. sparkly pumpkins and a 
bit of leaf confetti to finish off the table.....

.....and little votives with candles for
the grand darlings to blow out!

A few other touches around the house.....
a cornucopia plate in the little, red wire rack.

A banner reminding me to give thanks.....

.....and handsome Mr. Turkey reminding me to
"Share the Harvest".

Our large cabinet wears a 
"Thankful" banner.....

......and a candle burns in the kitchen to 
make the house smell like 
delicious baked treats!

My list of things to be thankful for 
grows longer and longer each year.

What's on your list, Glitterinas?

Have you started getting ready 
for Thanksgiving.....does
your mouth water when you 
think about this yearly feast....

What is your favorite thing to eat at Thanksgiving?

Thank you so much for stopping by today
and taking time to read my thoughts here 
at Pink Glitter!

Until next time,

Thankful for:

knowing Jesus

 a wonderful family 

sweet friends

my home

being retired


I told you,
 my list gets longer each year.......
