Happy Thanksgiving Banner Free Plastic Canvas Pattern
I designed this cute Thanksgiving Free Plastic Canvas Pattern for my entryway a couple of years ago. I get so frustrated that stores seem to forget there is a holiday between Halloween and Christmas. Since I wasn't having much luck finding Thanksgiving decorations, I chose to make my own!
This pattern languished on my hard drive for a long time. I finally decided to dust it off and share it with others so they could make one of their own. The finished plastic canvas project is pretty long (8-10 feet depending on how you space the letters) but you could use 10 ct plastic canvas to make a shorter one. Using just the most basic of plastic canvas stitches, it is a great project for beginners, or to teach kids the basics of sewing.

3 sheets of 7 ct plastic canvas
worsted weight yarn in tan,brown, dark brown, red, gold, and orange
#16 plastic canvas needle
3 yds brown 1/2 inch ribbon
2 - 1/2 inch plastic rings
hot glue gun
Additional Materials You May Want
Whenever I am working on a plastic canvas project, I find it helpful to have a needle threader and a plastic canvas hole/rib counter on hand. It makes things much easier!
Feel free to change the colors if you like. White or cream letters with a brown trim would also be pretty on this banner.

Stitches Used in This Thanksgiving Free Plastic Canvas Pattern
This pattern uses the continental stitch. If desired, you can use the slanted gobelin stitch on the letters instead of the continental stitch as it will work up quicker. The pattern also uses the overcast stitch to finish things off. If you are unfamiliar with any of these stitches, be sure to check out the links below for free instructions from Annie's Attic.
Happy Thanksgiving Banner Free Plastic Canvas Pattern Assembly Instructions
1. Cut all pieces according to the charts. (I recommend using a dry erase marker to draw the pattern on the canvas before you cut it.)
2. Stitch the turkey. Overcast using colors matching the surrounding
3. Stitch the letters using light brown. Overcast in brown.
4. Tie one end of the ribbon to one of the plastic rings. Knot it.
5. Use the glue gun to attach the ribbon to the top of backs of the letters and
the turkey. Use the turkey to separate the word "happy" from the word
"thanksgiving." It would be beneficial to lay the letters out to get the spacing
right before you do any gluing.
6. Tie the other end of the ribbon to the other plastic ring. Hang banner as
All finished! Now hang it up and stand back to admire your work :)
