Happy Thanksgiving!!

To You and Yours!!!

From all of us here at Glue Arts!!

We hope all of you....our fans, friends, consumers and retailers enjoy a wonderful holiday!!

It's truly been a pleasure these past few months since we kicked off the Glue Arts blog to read your comments and praise for our Glue Arts products and projects!

Many of you are having family and friends over and may have realized you could use a few decorations for your Thanksgiving table. Here's a few easy to make crafts that use items from right in your home and quick enough to make in time for Thanksgiving!!

Holiday Menu Frame

Glue Arts Hot Glue Gun
Glue Arts Extreme Adhesive Squares
Glue Arts Adhesive Squares
Glue Arts Vinyl Car Accents
May Arts Ribbon
Picture Frame
Fall Leaves & Picks
K & Company Butterflies 

1) Cut the Vinyl Accents to fit inside the picture frame. Next take the pieces out from the frame, insert the vinyl then add the glass and such behind the Glue Arts Vinyl Accents for support.
 2) Next select your leaves and fall picks. Hot glue the fall items together at the ends. Tie ribbon around ends and add butterfly. Use Glue Arts Extreme Adhesive…add several squares to backside of leaves and press onto frame.   
4) Cut a length of ribbon to run diagonally across bottom corner of frame. Adhere with Adhesive Squares. Adhere leaves together with Extreme Adhesive Squares and adhere onto ribbon.
5) Finish by grabbing a piece of chalk and writing out the day’s menu, a special welcome greeting or note!
6) Fun idea…make small chalkboard frames and personalize with your guests names for a unique placecard!   

Fabric Pumpkin

Glue Arts Hot Glue Gun 
Fat quarter of fabric
May Arts Ribbon
Leaves, Fall Picks
Toilet Paper Roll (yes...it's true!!)

1) Set paper roll on center of fabric. Pull fabric up and into center of paper roll. Keep pulling and tucking fabric arranging it as you work. Once all the fabric is fulled into roll...use your glue gun to adhere fabric together.
2) To "plump" the pumpkin just a bit...push down on it from the top to give it a bit of a squash. {technical term here!lol}
3) Cut a strip of paper...about 4 inches by 6 inches. Roll it up...ink the edges and hot glue into the center of the pumpkin. Give it a bit of a bend.
4) Add some fabric or felt leaves, fall pick and tie a bit of ribbon!

Quick, easy and economical decoration that will definitely not break the bank.  

Last before we go today....since we started the Glue Arts blog we've been quite fortunate to work with some wonderful companies! Cosmo Cricket, Colorbox, Hero Arts, Imaginisce and May Arts just to name a few!
