Gratitude Tree

With some branches from my neighbor's tree, leaves, ribbon and an old vase I made this gratitude tree. Every day this month as a family we've shared our feelings of gratitude, which then we write on die cut leaves that I purchased on sale @ Hobby Lobby for cents of dollar!! and then hang up on the branches. Today my tree is full with barely any room for more leaves and we still have more days until Thanksgiving and that is a good sign.

Easy and fast to make but above all it's purpose is a valuable lesson for my kids. They have become more aware of being grateful of even the little things and so have I.
