I love this time of year. I love taking the time to stop and think about what we are truly thankful for. Some people are posting on FB each day what they are thankful for. Some people journal about it, but I thought it would be fun to have a thankful tree that the whole family can enjoy.
Here’s what I did.
I cheated and had my Silhouette cut out my maple leaves for me.
But if you are doing this by hand I’d stick to a simple shape like this and use some pretty Fall colors like red, orange, green and yellow for your leaves.
After the leaves were cut I just took my hole punch and punched holes near the bottom of the leaf. Then just thread some yarn through and you’re done.
You can either do this all yourself or just put the leaves and yarn in something and set it by your tree and have each person thread their own. It’s up to you and how much time you have on your hands.
You can have a self standing tree like this or you can make a tree out of butcher paper and put it on a wall. Be creative.
How are you choosing to be thankful?
Tell me one thing you’re thankful for this year.
