DIY Gratitude Tree

Gratitude tree

I can’t believe the holidays are right around the corner!  This year has flown by!  Thanksgiving is in a few short weeks and we have sooooo much to be grateful for.  Life is good for sure.  I saw this idea on Pinterest…I am forever pinning ideas and projects and don’t always get around to doing them.  Now that we have moved I’ve decided to make a resolution…a little early for New Year’s, I know.  I resolve to actually complete more projects that I pin instead of saving them for “one day.”  So here’s my Gratitude Tree.  I saw lots of versions on Pinterest…some were called Thankful Trees or Thanksgiving Trees…I went with Gratitude Tree.  This project is super easy and makes a great centerpiece for your dining room table.

Here’s what you’ll need to make the leaves.

Since you will see both sides when they are hanging on the tree, I didn’t want the backs of the leaves to be white.  I cut out a leaf from autumn scrapbook paper and another from card stock.  I then glued the leaves together.  Next, punch a hole on one side of the leaf and tie a piece of twine to the leaf.  Write what you are thankful for and you are ready to hang your leaves.

I found the branches at Home Goods and got the Spanish moss from Michael’s.

This would be a great project to do with kids…I love hearing the answers they come up with.

There is always something to be thankful for.  I’d love to hear what you’re grateful for or see your Thanksgiving projects.
