I got this idea from the Simply Vintagegirl blog. I loved it because it was easy to do and it has a nice sentiment. I did mine a little different so here is a short tutorial.
I got my supplies from Hobby Lobby. The jar was originally $20, but I used their 40% coupon so it ended up being $12. The ribbon was a couple bucks.
It’s been raining a bunch around here lately and we were worried that we’d have a hard time finding some dry sticks for this project, so we sprung for a faux stick, $7.
We chose a few different colors of paper (we mimicked autumn leaf colors of course), but printed paper would be cool too.
Then we used a votive candle holder to trace circles and then cut them out. A hole punch was used for the holes (duh).
To complete the project we wrote things we are thankful for on the circles, put them on our faux stick, and voila! a thankful tree.
I was a little premature with this project, since Halloween isn’t even over yet, but I couldn’t resist. Right now the tree looks a bit Charlie Brownish. Mike likes it that way, but I’m thinking we may add some more circles later. And before I end this post, here is a picture of Mike being weird at Hobby Lobby and spelling out my name.
I love him. 🙂
