Thanksgiving is one of my favorite holidays! Start a new family tradition this Thanksgiving and create your own Thankful For Jar.
Each year as you sit down to share a meal with friends and family members, take a moment to reflect upon the things in your life that you are most thankful for....
A Thankful Jar is a simple DIY project that will make sharing just a little easier.
Step 1-Start with a mason jar or for those of us who are thrifty, simply recycle a pasta jar.
Step 2-Use the jar’s lid to trace a circle onto orange colored cardstock; cut it out using scissors.
Step 3-Cut or punch 3 small ovals from a coordinating colored cardstock.
Step 4-Adhere the circle to the lid. Top with the three ovals. Use pop dots under the center oval for dimension. Add a green stem; the vine is made by rolling up a thin strip of card stock.
Step 5-Using your favorite edge punch, cut a 3x5 mat. Cut a contrasting mat for either our Friday's freebie Thankful For.... card or our Happy Thanksgiving card.
Step 6-Glue the mat to the center of the jar and adorn with ribbon or additional decorative paper as desired.
Step 7- Fill out and then fill your jar with the things in your life you and your family are Thankful For…Revisit these items each Thanksgiving as a family.
Happy Thanksgiving from our family to yours!
