One of my favorite things about Thanksgiving is the emphasis put on living a life of gratitude. Here’s an easy DIY Thanksgiving decor project for you to set out during your Thanksgiving meal so that your guests can jot down some of the things they’re most thankful for. The leaves are then pinned to a wreath to create a beautiful reminder for children and adults alike!
DIY Thanksgiving Decor Gratitude Wreath Supplies:
- 12″ STYROFOAM® Wreath.
- (2) 1 1/2″ Silver Satin Ribbon.
- Gold Sequin Pins.
- Core Essentials Neutrals Cardstock Paper Pack.
- Darice Fall Leaves Die Cut Shapes.
- Darice Burlap Ribbon (optional).
- Hercules Double Sided Tape (optional).
Step One. Wrap both lengths of the 1 1/2″ Silver Satin Ribbon around the foam wreath. Secure end in place with a few sequin pins.
Step Three. Write out the directions on a piece of scrap paper. You could even decorate it with a few extra leaves! Display the leaves and sequin pins on a wood tray with a couple of pens for your guests to use. Add a few written leaves to the wreath before guests arrive as an example of what to do.
(Optional) Step Six. If you’re a fan of bows like I am, you can always add a burlap one to your DIY Thanksgiving decor wreath. I love how the burlap adds a rustic touch to the elegant satin ribbon! Use some Hercules double sided tape (one of my favorite craft supplies!) to attach.
I love the idea of being able to use this DIY Thanksgiving decor wreath year after year just by replacing the paper leaves. You could even change up the paper colors and bows to match different seasonal decorations. The options are endless!
Hope you have a wonderful Thanksgiving and holiday season full of all the the great things that make you thankful!
