My sister is gracious enough to host Thanksgiving dinner at her house. She is a fabulous cook so all of the family is grateful that we get to enjoy her cooking. She came across this project online and asked if I would make it for her to use on her table.

Super easy, so if you need a little something for your table you can whip this up in a flash.

I used glass votives I purchased at Walmart for .77 each.

The letters were cut on vinyl using the "A Childs Year" Cricut cartridge. I used the monogram option and cut the letters at 2" each. For the leaf I used Cricut Craft Room to insert the leaf icon from page 37 into the plain monogram on page 57.

I have a little blog candy you can have a chance to win:

All you have to do to have a chance to win is to:
