The Gratitude Tree Craft Project


You can make a centerpiece for your Thanksgiving table – using free leaves, a stick, a wire coat hanger and twisty ties. For real. All you need is a little imagination, and these simple materials become a gorgeous Gratitude Tree: a reminder of all that your family is grateful for as you dine together on November 27th.


The directions for this easy project are cross-posted over at the Sister Eden blog. It’s super for kids, grown-ups, couples and grandparents in families of all shapes and sizes. Everyone can collect and press leaves. Everyone can add what they’re grateful for.

Wishing you many blessings for a wonderful holiday and may your Gratitude Tree be filled with good wishes, love and excellent health~
