Every year we do a Thankful Tree and this year I decided on a little twist on the tradition. We collect branches and twigs every year to make our tree and then hang paper leaves with what we are thankful for. This year we have added the wax leaves I posted about in my last post.
Gather some branches or twigs when you are collecting beautiful leaves. Arrange them in a vase or large jar with something to weight down the vase and help hold the branches in place.
Take your wax leaves and tie them onto the branches with twine or jute. Now, I haven’t completely finished the tree yet but, I will have the kids write on some cute tags of what they are grateful for and hang them from the tree.
I gathered up extra leaves to set at the base of the tree. I just love looking at all the leaves we dipped in wax.
I also hung some pom-pom puffs from the light hanging over the table and just in case you missed the tutorial on how to make the puffs or the wax leaves you can click here.
