Creating a “thankful tree” this time of year is really popular because it’s such a good visual reminder of how blessed we all are and so simple to do.
For ours, I created hand-written blessings with chalk label tags and a gold marker. I asked everyone what they were thankful for and recorded the responses. My 3-year-old is thankful for, “Darth Maul lightsaber, Christmas trees, and friends.” He also drew something, but I’m not sure what it is.
I hung the labels on faux branches inside a Pottery Barn Urn.
To keep the branches upright where I wanted them, I stuck them inside a floral foam block.
The little fox
I spray painted gold is still around. I’m sure he’ll show up in the Christmas decor too. 🙂
Are y’all doing a thankful tree in your house? In addition to the first things that come to mind when I count my blessings – health, family, friends, and my home – I thought it would be fun to continue adding to the tree until Thanksgiving. I’ll be adding things like a cozy bed, my morning coffee, the steam room at my gym, and sleeping in.
Let's be friends!
