Thankfulness Turkey Wreath

Thanksgiving is in 3 days....can you even believe it? I suppose I should start pulling out some recipes! Ha! But before I do that, I just want to share one little tip with you: Save the feathers!!


 
That's right...the thankfulness turkey feathers you've been writing on for the past few weeks? Save them! They make a great, instant wreath for next year!

Start with a styrofoam wreath (I got mine in the $1 section at Target.) Grab some yarn in the color of your choice:

 
Wrap the yarn around the wreath and attach last year's feathers with pins:
 
 
Tie a ribbon around your finished wreath and display...proudly!

Because not only did you get your kids to put in writing a bunch of things they are thankful for...you also kept track of it all for an entire year!! And that's no small feat :)

 
 
 
 


Thanks for taking a peek inside my Lemon Tree Dwelling!
I hope you feel right at home :)
