Gobble Your Friends with a Gratitude Wreath

Hello, hello.  November already.  Geesh.  Last November, I made a gratitude wreath as a way to embrace all of life’s blessings.  We wrote what were thankful for on gold paper leaves (sometimes daily and sometimes weekly) and pinned them to the wreath.  On Thanksgiving, we included our extended family in the fun. 


And in the end, we had a wreath full of life’s blessings.  It was fun to read what everyone wrote and I saved the leaves to read again in years to come.  This wreath was actually my very first post ever. I’m sure most of you have not seen it, but you can check it out here.


And you’ve all probably heard of ghosting or booing friends, well why not gobble them with a gratitude wreath and a note?

And just a quick tip for hanging a wreath by ribbon.  Put a 3M hook upside down on the other side of the door and hang your ribbon off it.  The metal wreath hangers are too thick for my doors, so this is the perfect solution!


I loved the gratitude wreath, but this year I’m thinking gratitude garland instead.  I’ll check back with you when it actually has some leaves on it.  Time to get our gratitude on!

What types of things do you do to celebrate Thanksgiving?  Feel free to share in the comments.
