"Give Thanks" Thanksgivng Shadow box

 I’ve had a lot of great finds lately and I finally added them all together to create  the perfect simple Fall and Thanksgiving decoration.

 These beauties i picked up at a favorite consignment shop called Secondhand Chic located in Sugar House. I loved these antique flatware pieces and picked them up for I think $1.50 each.

 I also found some beautiful wall paper remnants that I couldn’t wait to use! I gathered a painted shadow box I had left over from my daughters room, some vinyl , spray adhesive and my new favorite tool by PLAID , My Professionals Tool Set which included a roller tool and scraping tool!

 I first measured and cut a piece of Wallpaper to fit the back of my shadow box. I used spray adhesive and rolled my Plaid rolling tool to smooth it out!

 After trimming the edge it was ready to go!

 I used E6000 glue to glue down my Flatware.

The scraping tool and rolling tool worked great to help me transfer my vinyl on!

This sits on my mantle and reminds me of our blessings! I love this simple reminder that was simple to make! 
Plaid wants to give one lucky reader their very one Professionals Tool set So you to can make a fun project like this! Simply leave a comment in today’s comments section and I’ll pick a winner and announce it next Wednesday!

    This post really touched my heart today. Maybe because I am the administrator for my parent's estate and my siblings and I have been cleaning out their house. Recently we came across their old silver and instantly reminded us of all the meals that the 8 of us shaired over the years. I think I may use your idea if that's ok. Thanks for sharing!! Love it!

    I love it. Such a fun idea. Would be perfect for my kitchen.

  43. 43

    It's beautiful! It's a great home for mismatched flatware. I am always finding odd pieces and before now I have passed them up!

    Cool idea for a shadow box! And I've been looking for those Mod Podge tools everywhere and can't find them!!!

    What a great idea! I love the potential for an heirloom piece! Thanks!

  49. 49

    I wouldn't have ever thought to use a brayer to ModPodge anything. That would certainly help me to smooth things out! I have to transform some old laundry detergent boxes into Math game boxes for my team, and a bit of decoupage is in the plans. This tool set would definitely make the job go more smoothly ;)

  50. 50

    That mod podge kit would be perfect for a mail sorter/key holder project I'm going to be working on. Please add me to your giveaway.
