Supplies you will need: tree branches vase, jar, or bucket for the tree branches ribbon die cut leaves
First off find a nice branch with lots of different branches for hanging the thankful leaves from.
Decorate your vase.
So once you get to this point you can gather the family around. Explain that this is the Thankful Tree, or Tree of Thanks, or whatever you want to call it. Each person will take a die cut leaf and write something they are grateful for each night.
After everyone has written, tack your leaf onto your tree. I used some more ribbon, cause really, can you have enough?!?!
Here's my tree so far, I drove up the canyon and cut down a bunch of branches. I love the arrangement even if I didn't put leafs on it. (excuse the very horrible picture taken, the flash cast shadows on the wall behind so it looks blurry). I dont have a die cut leaves so I am buying these off of Paper Creations on Etsy
And then we will write everyday or every couple days the things we are thankful for until Thanksgiving Day.
