Decorating with Laser Cut Words

As much as we think of gratefulness more around Thanksgiving than at any other time, it's a sentiment I try to carry in my heart all through the year. On some days, gratitude is as simple as finding cute little pumpkins that grew in the spot where you dumped the seeds from last year's pumpkins. Wink, wink.

One day, I saw some of the cutest wooden phrases and I knew that decorating with laser cut words would be fun project to work on. And so perfect for our Thanksgiving decorating as well. Knowing me, I'll probably keep this canvas in one spot or another in our home all year long...we all need a little reminder every now and then of the tiny blessings in our day.

I've had this linen covered canvas for probably a year and can't even remember what project it was that spurred my to make my purchase. But then I saw an IG friend post some adorable wooden laser cut words from this Etsy shop, I just had to get some for myself. So I did.

Because I wasn't sure if I would want to keep this as a permanent design, I just used some glue dots on the back of the wood elements and it has worked out beautifully. I'm actually surprised that the words haven't fallen off once.


I don't waste a moment if I can help it. In the car riders lot last week, I figured that I could put those 30 minutes to good use. I gathered scissors, my wreath {from Magnolia last summer}, a long length of jute twine and the word blessed and headed out to the car.

By using the jute twine to tie the laser cut word to my wreath, I'll still be able to change it out and not booger up the wreath or the word. I think the jute is almost unnoticeable, but does add a rustic touch  to it as well.

If you're feeling grateful and blessed and also enjoy documenting your thankful thoughts and grateful moments, you may find joy in some of the notebooks, mini books and journals from I Love It All, my handmade boutique. From as small as 3x4 all the way up to 8x10, there might just be a journal that will inspire you to capture the moments that brought a smile to your face today. And tomorrow.
