Last year I made a Thanksgiving: Thankful Turkey Hostess Gift that I heard a lot of great feedback on. This year I came across the idea to use the same concept on a wreath. So, I made this for our Thanksgiving host for this year.
I found a small foam wreath for only $1 at Target!
I covered it with brown ribbon (attached with a glue gun).
Next, I used scrapbook paper that was in fall colors and cut leaf shapes. I then used pins to attach them to the wreath. The pins make it easy for the leaves to me removed when a guest wants to use it and then they can reattach it where ever they choose on the wreath.
I had my family start by telling me what they are thankful for this year. We wrote our names and the year on the back of the leaf. I will post the finalized wreath after the big day. A last minute thought: I think I am going to attach a looped ribbon so it can be hung from a hook or nail if desired.
My son told me he is thankful for superheroes (last year it was monster trucks). I like to imagine that he is thinking of all the every day heroes in the world that help people. But he is only 5 - LOL!!! Then he told my husband that he should be thankful for race cars ;-)
