Thankful Tree

With Thanksgiving approaching, many of us are reflecting on all of the things for which we are ever so thankful... I put together a Thankful tree as a reminder of how very blessed we are.


I ventured away from the usual paper tag and made mine out of clay, securing them with jute string to my found branches.


I used some simple rubber alphabet stamps to spell out my words and once the tags were cool, wiped them with some aqua craft paint to enhance the letters.  I love the not-so-perfect look about these.  I love that you can tell they're handmade.


I've never made clay tags before, so I did a little internet search and found this clay tag tutorial at B&B's Nest.  It's a simple project that doesn't require a lot of time for such a charming end product.   


My neighbor's oak tree provided yet again for one of my projects - the bottom of my vase is filled with fallen acorns and oak leaves.



Faith... Hope... Love... Family... Joy... for these things I am so thankful.

  1. I have been trying to decide how I wanted our family to show what we are thankful for and I don't have to look any more! This is PERFECT!

    We are hosting a Home for the Holidays link party and I would love it if you would share your amazing tree!
