Our Thankful Tree

Brr, yesterday was rather cold here! I'm starting to wear my fleece leggings under my skirts...it's too soon for snow! They're calling for it Tuesday.

I've been enjoying fall way too much. Over on Pinterest I saw a wood "Thanksgiving Thankful Tree". I fell in love and showed my hubby. After he looked in his scrap pile, he was able to find some scraps of wood to make our family one. You could seriously make it any size! It's something that can be brought out year after year. It's always made me sad that the stores seem to skimp on Thanksgiving decorations...or ignore it period...is it just me?

I cut out the leaves on my Silhouette machine. If you don't have a cutter, you could search for a leaf image, print it out on cardstock, and use it as a stencil to make your own. I cut the leaves using vinyl so we could use a Dry Erase marker. If your children are older, they could even get involved and cut out the leaves too on scrapbook paper. Then you could cover them with contact paper from the Dollar Tree (or laminating machine) to use a Dry Erase marker. You could stain or paint the tree or even better have your children lend a helping hand. Mine are all about painting!

Here's to a wonderful week! Blessings.
