We’re trying to remember to be purposefully thankful this month so we made a Thankful Tree.
We started with a branch from the backyard.
Note: No living trees were harmed in the creation of this project.
Of course, I had to hit it with my favorite red spray paint…Krylon Banner Red. (It would have been fine au-naturale too. If you’re ok with naked sticks in your house.)
Then we put it into my Jute Twine Vase. There’s a piece of floral foam hot glued to the bottom. And some rocks for stability.
We’ll use the little paper tags to write down things that we’re thankful for throughout the month. This would be adorable if you have paper leaves to write on. But I was using what I had…paper tags. I’m hoping this will keep us in the habit of being grateful.
For the expected things…
For the sweet things…
For the things that bring tears to this mama’s eyes…
