For our project I bought a few scrapbook pages and used some pages I already had. Cut out circles, hole punched them and added yarn so we could hang them.
For the tree and vase I took an old vase and wrapped it in yarn (because everything can be wrapped in yarn these days)!!
Then I added some twigs and fake leave branches for our "tree"
It makes a fun centerpiece by itself, but we still needed to add our thankful cards.
Owen is thankful for Eli and Juice, Eliana is thankful for Family, being healthy, and fruit snacks, Daddy is thankful for freedom in Christ, a good job, and mommy, Mommy is thankful for a hard working Daddy, salvation, and family adventures!!
Lastly we hung our thankful cards...
and our Thankful Tree is complete!!! Just in time to be our Thanksgiving centerpiece.
One last Thanksgiving craft I completed this weekend was homemade napkin rings. We did this craft at MOPS and it is brilliant, cheap, and fun!
The main ingredient for this project - Toilet paper rolls!!!
I gathered some used tp rolls (or you could use paper towel roll), some felt, yarn, buttons, and a glue gun. But with this project its whatever your imagination can come up with.
I wanted to make a set of 8 for thanksgiving dinner. I glued the felt around the outside of the tp roll, then wrapped the centers in some yarn, lastly added a fun button. I made them all different but still coordinating.
Now I just need to find some fun fabric to fill all 8 of my napkin rings!
I will be sure to show you my future napkin rings for Christmas, Spring, Birthdays, etc... possibilities are endless. I even think it could be a great craft to do as a family and each person make their own napkin ring. Maybe a family Christmas craft ? :)
Have a great week preparing for Thanksgiving
