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

Supplies:
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
Cardstock
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! 


We thought it would be only fitting for this holiday to offer to you...our amazing fans a goodie bag of items we've accumulated and of course our Glue Arts products!!   


So let us know...what are you thankful for this holiday season??


We'll pick a winner who will enjoy: a Glue Glider Pro, Extreme Adhesive Squares and Mini Squares, May Arts Ribbon, two Fiskars Border Punches, a Mini Deck of Cosmo Cricket paper, Colorbox Chalk Ink Set, Hero Arts Stamps Set and an Imaginisce Tote Bag!! 


Leave us a comment and we'll announce a winner Friday here on the blog!!!


And our Extreme Black Friday Specials have officially kicked off! Be sure to visit our NEW Glue Arts Website to place you order and take advantage of these limited sales!!!




Happy Thanksgiving to you and yours!

  65. I am most thankful for my children. I wanted to be a mom from as long back as I can remember but I got lupus right out of college and thought I'd never be well enough or off my medications long enough to ever get pregnant. Fortunately my condition improved and I got off the medications with serious fetal side effects. I now have two lively, lovely and very healthy little boys. I thank God every day for them. They make me laugh mostly and cry a little and I wouldn't trade them for all the riches in the entire world. They light up my life.

  66. I am thankful for my family. Last year at this time, my grandson had brain surgery. This year he is doing okay and I am so thankful for him. I am thankful that I have my mother. She has dementia and I take care of her and I am so thankful I can. I love that menu frame and what a great hostess gift it would make. I do have a small blackboard, so I may try and put this together.
