Are you ready to make a Thanks Giving Tree with your family? Let’s get started then!
First, trace out a tree shape with branches onto your foam board with a pencil. Then using an X-ACTO knife, carefully cut the tree shape out of the foam board. Make sure to cut a small tree stand as well as a small slit at the bottom of the tree so the tree can stand by itself.
Using brown craft paint, cover both front and back of the tree and stand. Let dry for 30 minutes.
Take your scrap paper and X-ACTO knife and cut out leaf shapes in different sizes.
Grab markers, pens, or pencils and write what you are thankful for on the backside of each leaf…or use a thick, dark marker and write on the front of the leaves..your choice!
Press each leaf to the tree branches and voila! You have a very pretty free-standing Thanks Giving Tree to decorate your home this Thanksgiving. Now, whenever you see it you can be reminded of all the wonderful things to give thanks for in your life!
