Decorating for the holidays gives your house a boost of cheer. The problem is that not all budgets can handle the cost of new decor each year and sometimes you have about a fifteenth of a second and limited resources. Fear not. We’re doing it and want to give you everything you need to appear like you’ve got your poop in a group when friends and family show up and gorge on the food you’ve prepped.


  • Computer
  • Printer
  • Black and Color ink
  • Paper
  • (scrapbook paper can also be used)
  • Frames (dollar store)


Option 1 – Scrapbook paper

  1. Download the “give THANKS” file that fits the size of your frames (5×7 or 8×10).
  2. Place the scrapbook paper in your printer and print each letter on a different piece of scrapbook paper.
  3. Cut around the box outline on the printed image and place in frame.

Option 2 – Printer paper

(If you understand how to place an image in a word document, skip steps 2-5)

  1. Google “Thanksgiving wallpaper” or “Fall harvest” or, really, anything relating to your background. Click on any wallpaper site and start browsing. Those images are almost always free.
  2. Open Microsoft word and click the “Insert” tab and then on “Picture”. Find your file and open it into your document.
  3. A Format tab will appear. Click on the “Text Wrapping” icon and then “In front of text”
  4. Pull a corner of your image to stretch your fall image across your page.
  5. Print.
  6. Download the “give THANKS” file that fits your frame (5×7 or 8×10) and save to computer
  7. Put those beautiful fall wallpaper pages back into your printer tray and print each “give THANKS” image onto them. You’ll, then, have a single letter with a cool background.
  8. Cut out around the border and place in frame.

When I say I’m breaking it down, I’m not joking.
