Download the Free SVG file that contains all of the letters. It’s already set up to the correct size needed for this project. There’s also a PDF template in there too.

Use any cotton fabric you like or buy a package of Precut Fabric Quilt Squares like I did.

DIY Thanksgiving Fabric Wall Art - shot of fabric and fusible webbing

I love the color and patterns that these quilt squares came in that I found at Walmart.

I also suggest using Paper Backed Fusible Webbing for this project. If you’ve never used fusible web, it’s really very easy to use and has a double-sided adhesive which works great for this type of art.

Using this type of fusible web also adds stiffness to the fabric, reduces fraying, and will allow you to iron the letter directly onto the poster board if you choose. It’s also recommended if you’re cutting your fabric using a Cricut Explore.

How to Make a Thanksgiving Wall Decoration

Start by cutting your fabric into 5″ x 5″ squares if you’re not using precuts. You will need twelve squares. Next cut your Paper Backed Fusible Webbing slightly smaller than your fabric squares. You will need twelve.

Place the Paper Backed Fusible Web (rough side down) onto the fabric square. Iron according to the temperature and time listed in the instruction for your Fusible Webbing (Pellon Wonder Under recommends 5-8 seconds with a hot, dry iron). Repeat for all fabric squares.

Cricut Cutting Tips:

  • Cut out your letters by uploading the Free SVG letter file into Cricut Design Space. NOTE: The letters in the SVG file are already set up in reverse (mirror image) and correctly sized for this project.
  • Use the rotary blade (Cricut Maker) or fine point blade (Cricut Explore) and pink grip mat or your green mat if it’s not super sticky.
  • Place your fused fabric square in the upper left-hand corner of your cutting mat (fabric side down).
  • Use a brayer to make sure your fabric firmly adheres to the mat.
  • Set to “Bonded Fabric” or “burlap” with “Default” pressure. I recommend doing a test on your machine first to make sure you have the right settings.
  • Cut one letter at a time.
  • After cutting, peel your letters carefully from the mat so as not to distort them.

Assembling the Thanksgiving Art

With all 12 letters cut you’re ready to assemble the Thanksgiving wall art.

If your fusible webbing has a paper backing, remove it from each letter then arrange it on 11″ x 14″ cardstock or poster board.

Once you have the letters placed where you want them, you can put a light cloth over everything and iron the letters to your cardstock or you can just glue them down. I ironed mine on with a hot, dry iron for about 5-8 seconds and it worked out fine.

You can glue your letters onto an 11" x 14" cardstock or iron them on with a hot, dry iron for a few seconds. Make sure to remove the paper backing from each letter first, arrange the letters where you want them them on the cardstock then carefully place a light cloth over the letters before ironing.
