Hanging Thanksgiving Banner

Take some time to express your gratitude this season and really give thanks by making a Hanging Thanksgiving Banner from Candace Jedrowicz. Thanksgiving decor ideas can add a touch of seasonal fun and excitement to your space. Hang one on your wall to greet dinner guests.

Hanging Thanksgiving Banner


  • Electrical wire/14 gauge wire – about 6 feet
  • Letter shapes – I used CK Shear Madness font and made the size 2″ x 3″
  • Rubber cement
  • Cardboard
  • Decorative paper
  • Small hole punch
  • Grommets
  • Scissors
  • Round nose pliers
  • 24 gauge wire
  • Assorted beads


  1. Cut your letters from cardboard.
  2. Cut strips of decorative paper at least as wide and twice as tall as each letter.
  3. Fold the paper in half and paint half  with rubber cement.
  4. Put a letter on the cemented side and cut around it.  Cement the other side and and fold it over the letter.  Finish cutting out the letter.
  5. Lay the letters out with 1/2″ between.  Measure the word and cut your large wire at twice the length.
  6. Make some small loops in the wire with the pliers, about where each letter will be.  Make curly ques on both ends.
  7. Punch 2 holes in the top of the letters.  Set with grommets.
  8. Cut 6″ lengths of small wire for each whole.
  9. Wrap a small coil on one end of the wire and slide tail through on hole.  Loop the tail around the coil to secure.
  10. Slide on one or two beads – about 1″ worth.
  11. Wrap the remaining tail around the large wire to attach.  Repeat for all the letters.
