DIY Thankful Tree with free printable tags

November 22, 2015

With the hustle and bustle of the holiday season, busy days of cooking and time with family and friends, sometimes its nice to take a pause. A Thankful Tree is a way our family spends a few minuets reflecting on the past year before dinner begins. Sharing a prepared meal from the heart with your family is one of my favorite thankful moments. This tree is our table centerpiece and a way to get our kids and guests to feel involved. If you are welcoming guests this year, we love this as a friendly icebreaker as well. 

Here are step by step directions for you own DIY Thankful Tree 


Step 1. Print and cutout the tags with this free printable


Step 2. Add string to each tag, choosing your favorite twine.

Step 3. Make your tree by choosing branches and arranging in a vase or mason jar. On Cape Cod we have beautiful holy trees in our yard which I love to include clippings of in our decorations. Choose the branches with local meaning to you and that fit your decor. 

Step 4. Make easy napkin holders with twine and each tag. Just tie the twine around the napkin, fix the tag and add a few clippings of holy or your favorite decoration.
