For the month of November I'm displaying the
This is a super easy project you can create with the family.
You will need:
sand or pebbles
card stock or construction paper
pen or pencil
leaf to trace
1. Trace and cut out your leafs from the paper of your choice. I did a dozen or so. Punch holes in them to tie your strings from. You will hang them on the branches by the string so be sure to create a loop.
2. Arrange your branches in your pot. Poor the sand in to keep the branches in place. I do this with our Christmas tree too, much easier than any ordinary tree stand.
3. Use as your tables centerpiece or off to the side in a safe spot. Place the leaves and a pen in a bowl nearby. When you think of something your thankful for write it on the leaf and hang it on your tree. Before you know it you'll have a pretty fall tree full of leaves.
I see this becoming a family tradition in our house. I plan to save the leaves each year and add to a scrap book or a shadow box full of the leaves would be cool too.
Here are some of the things my kids wrote on their leaves:
I hope you'll try this too. Have fun!
