I’ve been seeing Thanksgiving Trees all over the place and fell in love the idea. There’s not much to it: get some branches, a vase and decorate your Thanksgiving Tree with little notes of the things you and your family are thankful for. I had fun writing out my gratitude notes with my husband and daughter and I love being reminded of all of our blessings every time I pass by our tree.
The great thing about decorating with branches is that you don’t have to look further than your own backyard to find them. Whether you decide to paint them like I did, or leave them alone, branches are a beautiful way to incorporate nature into your home’s decor. For a rustic touch, add a twine or rope-wrapped vase.
Twine, string, rope or yarn
Spray paint (Valspar Metallic Aged Copper)
Fabric or ribbon
1.) Wrap vase in twine or rope. Secure it with beads of hot glue in various places so that it doesn’t shift.
2.) Spray paint branches.
3.) Punch out tags (or buy them already made in the scrapbooking section.)
4.) Write your gratitude messages on the tags and hang them using yarn or string.
Enjoy your Thanksgiving Tree!
