I have seen many, many versions of thankful trees online lately, and I love them all. Finding a few bare branches in your yard and placing them in a pretty vase or jar is all it takes to create this personalized décor for your own home. I used a circular paper punch to create leaves for my tree, but you can also cut leaf shapes from cardstock, or even use silk leaves if you prefer.
This will be perfect as a Thanksgiving table centerpiece and you can have all of your guests add their thanks to the tree. I especially love to see what kids are thankful for. My daughter’s thankful list this year included books, light to see, and a bed to sleep in. Simple gratitudes that we often forget to acknowledge.
What are you thankful for this year?
Happy Thanksgiving, DIY’ers!
