Thanksgiving Centerpiece #1 (Hopefully!)

Am I the only one who can hardly believe that Thanksgiving is next week?  Oh my goodness- this year has flown by! 

I am just beginning to think about the big day and what treats I will prepare, but of course- you have to decorate as well.  Since this week's Fantabulous Cricut Challenge Blog challenge is "Thanksgiving", I had an excuse to begin thinking about centerpieces and decor. 

I pretty much decided that I was not going to make any more projects from the "It's Fall in the Details" cartridge after the Pumpkin Project you can revisit here.  In all honesty, that one was a struggle, but when I saw this cute little Pilgrim hat, I decided to give it one more try.  I'm still working on the edges, but this one turned out a little bit better I think.  It certainly went together much faster.  I lined the cute little cutouts with a burgundy metallic paper.  The buckle is a metallic gold paper.  We actually had a debate in my house- did pilgrims have shiny buckles?  But really- it's all just in fun so why not? (It was a struggle not to add a rhinestone or two!)

The hat is about 5 inches tall and the brim is 8 inches across.  I scattered some leaves from the "Create a Critter" and "Doodlecharms" cartridges.  It is actually the perfect size for a tablescape. I hope (fingers crossed with my schedule!) to be able to make a couple more of these and some turkeys for decorations on Thanksgiving (And then try to figure out how to save them for next year!) 

Here is the information on this week's Fantabulous Cricut Challenge Blog Challenge, "Thanksgiving".
