because we're celebrating Thanksgiving at grandma and grandpa's place in Prescott this year, I brought all the supplies with me when we went last weekend. as well as providing entertainment for the kids, I figured it could also double as a centerpiece for the table. you don't have to tell me how clever I am, I already know. *grin*
I had Gary cut a few branches from the backyard and then arranged them in a simple glass vase, although any type of glass container would work-- I just happened to have this vase on hand. for the "leaves" we cut circles out of scrapbook paper with a circle punch and then attached them to the branches with colorful yarn (strips of fabric would be cute, too.) again, instead of circles you could also cut out actual leaf shapes. unfortunately, I'm not that talented with scissors so my leaves would probably end up resembling crude bananas. but hey, then we could just pretend we lived in Hawaii. banana tree, get it? ha ha.
|our thankful tree is beginning to blossom!|
but most importantly, be thankful.
