Thankful Tree

Thanksgiving is probably my absolute favorite holiday.
I love the story of the Pilgrims and the first Thanksgiving,
and I love to count my blessings.
When you stop a moment to do that, you realize how much you 
truly have.  
So, I decided to make a thankful tree for my family to contribute to every day::

I collected some twigs and stuck them in a mason jar.
I added some ribbon I already had and used my cricut to cut out circles from fallish paper then  hung them from the branches...

By Thanksgiving we should have a tree full of blessings!

{This idea was adapted from my pinterest board}
See the original that I pinned  from here.

Come see some of my photography over at Serendipity-Images.


  1. I love this idea!!! And I bet once the tree is full it makes a big impact!

  2. What a super cool idea! I love it. Thanks so much for linking up to Project Pinterest!

  3. What an amazing idea!!! I need to add this to my pinterest! I want to do this when we have kids someday!

  4. Super cute! I want to do this with my kiddos as well. :)

  5. cute, I know Emily Rose from years ago, hers is very cute but I like yours a little more...your tree just seems more warm feeling, maybe it's the ribbons.

  6. You are so clever! What a blessing it will be to read on Thanksgiving day!

  7. How wonderful that you actually created something you pinned. I am so impressed with the end results too-you are very clever!

    I host a weekly Pinterest link up at my blog on the weekends-please pop by if you have 5 minutes to spare. I would be so honoured if you could link up this Pinspirational post!

    Best wishes and happy pinning,
    Natasha @ 5 Minutes Just for Me
