Gratitude Garland

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!

  1. Frist, print off and cut out as many of our gratitude flags as you want.

  3. Fold in half.
  4. Place the string or twine down the middle, and glue or tape together.

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!
