Thankful Tree

I’ve been so inspired by all the wonderful ideas for Thankful Trees on Pinterest this year. There are so many beautiful, creative ideas.  Here’s our version.

Materials used:
Tags:  scrapbooking paper, tag punch, embroidery thread
Tree and container:  copper colored, spray painted branches, half-gallon mason jar, unidentified nuts we found in the woods by our house.

The Husband and I began by filling out a few tags to show the kids the idea.  Big kids can write words. Little kids can dictate words or draw pictures, or both.

We are going to keep adding to it leading up to Thanksgiving, then invite our visiting family and friends to add even more as we celebrate the holiday together. Won’t it be fun to read what everyone is grateful for?  And the tags can easily be saved to look back on in years to come.

So much to be thankful for.

    We are going to start a thankful tree during the week of Thanksgiving and reading this reminded me that I need to go and buy the punch and paper tomorrow!!! I love your tree.

    Haven’t tried this version yet, but it’s lovely! I like the color of the little dresser it’s sitting on, too.
