4 Thankful Tree Ideas

Does your family make a thankful tree? Ours does every year and it’s always so much fun!

As you’ll see below, there’s lots of different ways to make one, but here’s the basic idea: Create some sort of a tree backdrop and then add leaves to the tree throughout the Thanksgiving season (with some sort of “I’m thankful for…” sentiment on each leaf).

Here’s some wonderful inspiration from other moms for your Thankful Tree!

I love this upcycled thankful tree from One Creative Mommy made out of brown paper bag packing material!

Apron Strings & Other Things uses handprint leaves on her tree.
