In November, we set aside time to be thankful. For family, friends, and other special blessings. Take time to record these blessings, and turn them into a Thanksgiving Thankful Tree. This Thankful Tree is a functional decor piece that reminds you of your blessings all season long.
Supplies to Make a Thanksgiving Thankful Tree
- Craft Foam or cardboard
- Colored paper
- Hot Glue (optional)
Making Your Thanksgiving Thankful Tree
Start by downloading this image, and printing it on an 8.5x11 sheet:
Cut two pieces from craft foam or cardboard.
On one piece, cut down the center - from the top down to the bottom of the two lines in the middle. Remove a sliver about 1/8" wide. On the second piece, cut from the bottom up to the top of the two lines, again removing a sliver.
Insert these slits into each other to create the tree. You can secure them with hot glue, if needed.
Using the leaf template, cut leaves out of colored paper. Write things that you are thankful for on the leaves. Add a hole punch.
Insert a string through each hole, and tie each leaf to your thankful tree.
Your thankful tree is complete! You can add to your tree all season long. Let friends and family who come to your Thanksgiving dinner contribute participate and if you have children they can participate too.
What are you thankful that you'll be adding to your tree this year?
