Thanksgiving: Craft Edition

I know, I know. By now y'all are sick of all of the Thanksgiving leftovers and you're SO READY to decorate for Christmas and listen to Jingle Bell Rock at obnoxiously loud volumes!

But first, let me show you this!


This was a fun little craft for the family to do after they were done eating, but still sitting around the table. The tummies were full and the time to ask for participation in a crafty activity was PRIME! My pride in picking the perfect time to ask for their participation is matched only by my pride in this ridiculously easy and fun Thankful Wreath. 

I was inspired by this Pin by Family Fun Magazine. I thought hey, that's a super easy craft that I could convince my family to do and it takes just a little prep and then we can ALL see the fruits of our labor! DONE. We're huge fans of immediate gratification. 

So basically it was like this:

Supplies I used:
Cricut Explore to cut the leaves in red, yellow, and dark brown cardstock.
Leftover fat square fabric

I cut out leaves on my Cricut Explore and had them sprinkled around the table like it was the tablescape (sneaky!). All I had to do was add the pens to the table. I had prepared the wreath ahead of time by cutting 1-2" strips and wrapped it around a foam wreath using double-sided tape. After everyone had written what they were thankful for, I used straight pins to push the leaves into the wreath. 

HOW EASY IS THAT?!

Thanks to the Cricut, this took like NO time to put together. While the leaves were cutting, I was taping fabric to the wreath. All of the preparation took maybe 10 minutes. The best!
