Vintage Thanksgiving Postcard ~ Sweet Magnolias Farm Free Clip Art and Printables

Hey You all .. Well it's been well over a week since I last posted .. This last week has been super busy getting the business ready for Christmas .. It's always strange for me to be designing and making Christmas in 100 degree heat .. It was like I needed a snow machine and to turn the AC on high so I could put on a sweater and pretend it was cold out..LOL !
I wanted to start today out with this Beautiful Thanksgiving Postcard from the early 1900's .. I love these old style cards with the glitter on them ..
This would be such a beautiful piece turned into a small plaque .. if you don't have the tools to cut wood can buy premade plaques at your local craft store ( michaels, jo anns and hobby lobby) Even Home Depot has a section of precut wood pieces. 
Simply Print this out to the size you would like .. then Use Modge Podge  to apply.  Add the Modge Podge directly to the wood . then lay your print on top and smooth it out gently with your hand making sure it applies evenly so there are no bubbles. Wait for it to Dry. Then coat the top with Modge Podge .... Drill a couple holes in the top corners and add your hanger ( ribbon, twine, wire etc) Or if you aren't handy with the drill Use Ribbon or Twine and hot glue the ends to each top corner on the back.   Then add some glitter to the front.. and you have a lovely Fall Plaque to enjoy that's been Made by You.
