What You’ll Need

How To Make A Gratitude Garland

  1. Print – First, print off and cut out as many of our gratitude flags as you want.
  2. Be Thankful – Start writing down all the things you, your family, classroom, friends, etc. are thankful for.
  3. Prep – Fold the flags in half.
  4. Connect – Place the string or twine down the middle, and glue or tape together.
  5. Display – Hang and enjoy!

It doesn’t get much simpler than that!  With a few objects and a little bit of time, you’ve got a super cute and meaningful craft!  This Thanksgiving garland is perfect for all ages.  My kids didn’t want to stop coming up with ‘blessings’ to write down. This would also be a fun craft for classrooms, youth groups, dorm rooms, etc. – even cub scouts would love making one of these!
