I sure do love this time of year, really makes you remember what's most important in life. If you have a hard time remembering you will love this next project... I call it the Thankful Tree.
Most people put little tree's on there table, counter, or other surfaces. However, with my small living space this really wasn't an option. Even though I don't have oodles and oodles of surface space, I do have wall space, and this little creation is perfect for that:)
Hang little home made leaves on the branches to remember what's most important to you. Another great aspect of this project is it can change with the seasons: hang bats, ghosts, and witches during Halloween, ornaments during Christmas, and eggs around Easter. It's a great project to do with your kiddos. I acquired my branch/twig on a nice fall walk and added a little metallic paint to it just to fancy it up a bit, and the frame was an old thrifted brown one that I painted and glazed. I used little good old super glue gel to attach the branch to the frame. Love that stuff and it only took a little bit because the branch was so lite weight. Don't you think it looks fab on the wall too:):):) I love how it turned out.
Guys I am so excited for Thanksgiving week. My sister and her family are coming for an entire week. Heaven. Seriously, I am so lucky to have such an awesome family that I love to be around, we have such a good time together. Not to sound cocky, be we are pretty fun people to hang with;) What are your plans for this week? Hmm???
