Gratitude Wreath

I saw this wreath of plenty on Pinterest and knew I wanted to make it!  I decided to make it out of my latest digital scrapbook kit called Seasons of Thanks which is about being grateful for what we have.  It didn't take me long to make and I had all the materials at home!  If you want to make one, just email me or leave me a comment and I will email you everything you need!  Here's how my wreath turned out.
Every night after dinner, I pull the wreath down from the door and we take turns telling what we are thankful for.  I try to go first to model for them but they still stay things like "baby bear" and "piggy".  I write down what N2 say.  I want to make them stretch which is why I'm not writing down what Brian and I say.  I write it down with brown Sharpie.
The one day I almost forgot and Noah ran to the bathroom, got the stool and tried to grab the wreath.  I'm glad he remembers and is enthusiastic about it!  I'll have to make new leaves for next year.  I guess I could have laminated the leaves and used a overhead marker to write down their answers.  But then I would need a laminator!


  1. That turned out really pretty! Much prettier than mine, but my girls are happy to be able to tape their construction paper leaves to the wall. It is fun to hear what your kids are grateful for!

  2. I enjoyed reading your November blog reports. I loved the gratitude wreath. What a great idea.
