Hi everyone! We are Cassandra & Kenzi, the mother and daughter duo behind DETAILS2ENJOY. We recently started our blog to share the many ways you can DIY our product, Pocket Frames. We are so happy to be celebrating the holidays with The Crafting Chicks and to share our Thanksgiving inspired Pocket Frames.
Pocket Frames are DIY signs that are interchangeable. We handcraft each frame on our little property in Hermiston, Oregon in our barn woodshop. The top of our frames are held on with magnets and can be removed and inside the frame are two tracks that can hold a variety of inserts. Learn more about Pocket Frames and how they work by visiting our blog.
Decorating for the holidays is always so fun from Halloween to Thanksgiving and, of course, Christmas! And while there are classic elements to all the decor for these occasions, we each can put our own little spin on the traditions and themes for our own homes. In this post, we are going to show you two different ways to style one of our Pocket Frames for Thanksgiving. The two of us each created a look that reflected our unique tastes. You can DIY your own frame by purchasing the kit from our Etsy Shop (coming soon) and following along with Kenzi’s version, Cassandra’s version, or you can create a version all your own!
What you’ll need from our shop:
- C Sized Pocket Frame
- Be Thankful Project Kit (includes Grain Sack Insert and 3D “Be Thankful” Letters)
You will also need:
- Stain / Paint & Brushes / Spray Paint
- Fabric / Faux Flowers / Various Fun Crafty Things to Decorate With!
Cassandra, the mom of D2E, is a lover of soft neutrals and warm earthy decor. She stained her frame with our favorite Minwax Provincial Stain, painted her insert with a white spray paint, and her letters with a warm grey. She let the back of the frame show through her grainsack and hot glued on white faux flowers and a few pieces of wheat.
Kenzi, the daughter of D2E, loves modern fall decor that combines woods, black, white, and lots of texture! She also stained her frame using Minwax Provincial, but for her insert, she used black spray paint, and white spray paint for the letters. Behind the Grain Sack insert, she attached plaid fabric with hot glue to give her frame a little texture.
With the exact same pieces, we each created a our own look using colors and design elements that we love! Create your own look using papers, fabrics, paints, and embellishments that you love! Display it for the Thanksgiving season and then switch it out for Christmas later on. Here are some examples of other seasonal decor we have done with our Pocket Frames!
