Today is the first of (hopefully) a few Thanksgiving posts coming up. Once everyone was done with Halloween, they seemed to all jump straight to Christmas. But we forgot Thanksgiving!!! So I hope to inspire you with a few last minute projects:)
My sisters and I were scrolling through my Christmas Pinterest board last year before Thanksgiving, and one sister pointed out that we should try our hand at these little cuties! Lara had recently been collecting a bunch of evergreen branches for a Christmas tea, so we just headed out to our woods and grabbed some sticks really fast. We got some thicker ones for the base, and some with pineneedles for decoration.
For the base, we cut the thicker ones into pieces (4 - 4 1/2" was about perfect).
The best ones were the ones with nobs and different mosses and lichen growing on them:)
We raided Lara's scrapbook papers.....
And used my "Smash" stamp to add the date on the bottom.
We glued the leaves onto a few of them for extra decoration.
(I didn't get any pictures of the actual process because Lara was moving too quickly;) But just put a line of hot glue on one branch, smoosh the paper on, add a line of hot glue to that, and press the evergreens and other branch on. (and yes, smoosh is a technical term;)
What are your Thanksgiving plans?
