I love using this time of year to count my blessings and all of the many things I’m thankful for. Today, I’m sharing a fun Thanksgiving project idea with the purpose of helping you do just that! This Thanksgiving pumpkin DIY pallet sign features pretty fall leaf clips that are painted with chalk paint that allows you to jot down things, people and places you are thankful for. Clipped to the sign, these can be used to jot down your blessings as you remember them all month long!
- Darice Wood Pumpkin Pallet Sign.
- Darice 3 inch Maple Leaf Wood Cutouts (6).
- Darice Unfinished Wood Letters.
- Orange, Green and Light Blue Craft Paint.
- Chalkboard Paint.
- Darice Foam Brushes.
- Darice Bristled Paint Brush.
- Darice Wood Clothes Pins (6).
- Darice Hot Glue Gun.
Paint each of the leaf cutouts with the green paint. Allow to dry completely before applying the chalkboard paint to the surface of each one with a foam brush according to the paint package instructions. Set aside to dry.
When the leaf pieces are completely dry, use hot glue to affix a clothes pin to the back of each one. Rub a piece of chalk sideways over the surface of each one and wipe clean. (This will prime the pieces so you can write on them and then erase over and over again.)
Position the wood letters as shown below on the pumpkin DIY pallet sign. Affix each one to the sign using hot glue.
To use the board, write things you are thankful for in chalk onto the leaf clips, and then attach them to the board by clipping them around the outer perimeter of the sign. This is such a fun activity to complete with children to encourage them to count their many blessings during this special time of year!
This DIY pallet sign can either be hung on a wall or displayed on a stand on a table or mantel. Another great idea would be to incorporate this sign into a Thanksgiving table centerpiece to inspire a great conversation around the table about all of the things your friends and family are thankful for.
With just a few supplies and a small amount of time, you can create a meaningful, fun Thanksgiving craft project to enjoy all month long. If you’re a fan of the pallet wood look, you might also be interested in this barn wood FALL decor sign. Thanks so much for stopping in!
