If you are wondering what to make for a table topper for Thanksgiving, I have the perfect project. I made this last year and fell in love with it! This cute little house made such a great impression on my dining room table! I covered the table with a seasonal cloth first and then added a basket with greenery and put this cute little scene in front of it! My home was ready for Autumn in no time!

This Fall project is featuring the Sizzix Scoreboards Pro Die-House, 3D by Eileen Hull!

I used the glazing medium to adhere the wrinkled tissue paper to the house. Let it dry and then paint with the English Mustard and Wrought Iron in respective places. ‘Antique’ with the Burnt Umber.

For the Base, Trace the top shape onto the wrong side of fabric, cut out and then adhere with watered down Tacky Glue, Let dry. Paint the edges with Burnt Umber and “float” or shade the top edge of the fabric. Use Satin Varnish for sealing the project and give a finishing touch on all pieces, including the pumpkin!
