Sometimes crafts are simple, so simple that you can't believe you didn't think of them before. The craft I did today was one that seriously took an hour of my time from start to finish. The only reason it took an hour was because I let Lil Man walk instead of pushing him in a stroller.
Since this is the season to be thankful for all we have, I thought it would be a great idea to make a Tree of Thanks. I saw it on Pinterest and I added it to my Thanksgiving traditions board. It may even be something we keep around until Christmas, it seems like a fun idea.
So Lil Man and I went out walking today to collect some twigs. I collected the twigs he just walked with the dog. It was a great walk and it tuckered him out which gave me two glorious hours of peace and quiet in the house.
When I got home I also picked up a few pine cones from under our pine trees and brought them inside. I put some glass stones in the bottom of a vase I had already and added the pine cones. Then I arranged the twigs I had collected in the vase. It looks a little empty right now, but soon it will have little cards on it that have different things people are thankful for.
