Feeling Thankful? Here’s how to make this DIY Thankful wall hanging for Thanksgiving!
This year, I am really trying to focus on the good in my life and all of the amazing things that I have to be thankful for. So, I thought that it would appropriate to make a Thanksgiving craft highlighting that!
I have always loved the look of Thankful Trees. This is a solution for people who want a Thankful tree but don’t have the table space for it – it’s a wall hanging Thankful tree! It also has a slight rustic or boho feel, too!
This wall hanging is really easy to make. You’ll need:
- A stick
- Letters – cut from cardstock or pre-cut
I used store bought leaves for this project, but if you live in an area where the leaves change colors, I’d really recommend using leaves from outside!
Sure, you’ll have to put it together at the last minute to keep the leaves looking their best, but this whole thing comes together in just a few minutes so that should not be an issue.
I used my Cricut to cut the THANKFUL letters out of cardstock. You could also use pre-cut paper, sticker, or wooden letters. Or, cut them by hand!
If you have a Cricut, you could also cut leaves out of paper!
I plan to set out brown paper tags and pre-cut pieces of twine along with a marker to let people add what they are thankful for. My parents are hosting 17 people for Thanksgiving so hopefully it gets filled up!
I used pre-made tags from the craft store. You could also cut them out and hole punch them by hand or cut them with a Cricut!
- Stick - about 2-3 feet long
- THANKFUL letters
- Paper tags
- Hot glue
- Pen or marker
- Hot glue gun
- Cut 8 pieces of twine, about 2 feet long
- Tie your leaves onto the twine, leaving space at the top to attach to the stick
- Attach the 8 strands evenly across the stick
- Use hot glue to attach letters to top of each strand
- Add long string of twine to top for hanging
- Cut small pieces of twines to set out with tags and markers for thankful tags
This is a great way to decorate for a Thanksgiving or Friendsgiving party. It’s also a great idea for a work office! So many great uses.
How do you celebrate the spirit of thankfulness each Thanksgiving?
