Thankful Tree

I have always wanted to make a "tree" like this. This is our thankful tree. I found some acorn and leaf die cuts at Joann's today on clearance. And this vase had been sitting in our garage for months. I paid a whopping $5 for it at our local thrift store. I knew it would come in handy one day (told you honey!).
I also bought some bags of leaves at the dollar store and put those on the bottom of the vase.  Then I went into our backyard and started gathering up sticks.  I brought them in and then arranged them. 
I punched a hole in the top of each die cut and tied some ribbon through the hole.  Everyday we will write down something (on the die cut) we are grateful for and then hand them on the tree. 

I can NOT wait to see this full of thankfulness!

Very cool and I'm still lovin my cd...the kids were having a breakdown this morning, so I popped in my cd and they calmed right down and started coloring quietly. Works like a charm! :)

I'm thankful to have one less thing in my garage! :)

Its really cool, honey and the branches will come in handy next time we want a fire in the fireplace.

Sorry. I honestly do like it. Its a great idea.

I'm thankful that I have the greatest wife EVER!

I have been wanting to make a thankful tree for November. It would do some good to write down things that I am thankful for and then to look at it at the end of the month.

I know what I'm doing tomorrow.

By the way, I LOVE the cd. When I got it I opened it up and listened to it straight through. Are you the first or second voice in your song?
