Add this Gratitude Garland to your list of Thanksgiving crafts this year! So simple and perfect for kids of all ages, plus a beautiful way to display all the things you’re grateful for!
This past month has been a roller coaster of emotions for our family full of sorrow, joy, heartache, hope and everything in between. It’s also put Life into perspective, making me think: What is really important in my life? This simple question is what inspired me to come up with this darling Gratitude Garland.
This is a fantastic Thanksgiving project for the whole family, and VERY simple to create. All you need are a few supplies and you’re ready to get started!

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! One that is perfect for all ages – my kids didn’t want to stop coming up with ‘blessings’ to write down. This would also be a great craft for classrooms, youth groups, dorm rooms, etc. – even cub scouts would love making one of these!
Ready to make your own?
Hope you all have a great Thanksgiving!
