Thanksgiving Subway Art & Free Printables


Where were we?

Oh that’s right … the naked wall under my Chevron wreath.


My favorite, favorite quote/phrase/scripture for Thanksgiving is the 100 Psalm and I knew I wanted to have that displayed somewhere in my home. The words are so beautiful:

Make a joyful noise unto the Lord, all ye lands.

Serve the Lord with gladness: come before his presence with singing.

Know ye that the Lord he is God: it is he that hath made us, and not we ourselves;

we are his people, and the sheep of his pasture. Enter into his gates with thanksgiving, and into his courts with praise:

be thankful unto him, and bless his name.

For the Lord is good; his mercy is everlasting; and his truth endureth to all generations.

I thought about making a plaque with wording, but decided to apply the vinyl right to the wall since it won’t damage the paint and can easily be changed for Christmas. I planned on using all white vinyl, but my awesome neighbor had this beautiful copper/bronzy vinyl that she hooked me up with that I am smitten with.

Here’s how it turned out:


I love how the colors work together with the Chevron Wreath and the way the copper vinyl glows as the sun streams into the room.

Have you ever tried using two shades of vinyl on your projects?

I hadn’t.

I cut the whole scripture in white vinyl first and then removed the letters I wanted to display in copper.


The I recut a few of the words from the copper scrap …


… and carefully applied them to the wall.




And just like that, one of my favorite scriptures came to life on my wall.

And as I sit here typing this, I can’t help smile at my view:


Now I realize that a lot of you don’t have Silhouettes so having a bunch of these projects can get frustrating. So … to make this project assessable to everyone and keep a Rock What Ya Got vibe, I’ve created several versions of this scripture in different formats so you can pick the one that works for you.


(yeah FREE!)

Silhouette users: email me at choosetothriveblog at gmail dot com and I’ll send you the file to cut your own. This should save you a couple hours of formatting and/or paying for a designs for the Silhouette store. A little tip here: weed slowly.

Non-Silhouette users: below are printable 8”x10” and 5”x7” versions that you can easily print out and pop into a frame you already have for a similar look.

Option B: Order Choices – SOLD OUT

1) If you need vinyl, my neighbor has kits for enough white and copper vinyl for this 12”x24” design for dirt cheap: $5. That way you don’t have to order a full role for a color like copper that you may only want a little piece of.

2) If you’d like to purchase a ready-made 12” x 24” version, I will cut a small number of these for $15 since they take quite awhile to feed and prep for application on a wall or board.

Again, email me if you’re interested.


So there you go …

lots of options for a beautiful reminder of this season of thanksgiving.
