A few weeks ago, there was a mighty big windstorm. During this windstorm, a good sized branch was broken off from a tree in our back yard. I saved this branch and today I made it into our Thanksgiving tree.
I had to saw off the bottom of the limb, otherwise it would have been too tall. Then, I took it out to the garage and spray painted it white and threw silver glitter on it. After it dried, I placed it (thick end up) in a pot and filled the pot with stones (That was Joe's idea and I must admit it worked out well!)
Now that the tree was ready I made a bunch of the leaves I saw on Clarice's site last month (http://storybookwoods.typepad.com/storybook_woods/autumn_bliss/index.html)
I like them better then my last attempt, because I made them smaller and they looked better that way to me. On each leave, we wrote something we were thankful for. I really like how it turned out! What do you think?
Now I need to make some more leaves, because we ran out of leaves before we ran out of blessings! LOL
