Thankful Trees

I love to hear about other people's family traditions around holidays.  One that I love this time of year is the different ways people share what they are thankful for. Right now one of my favorites is the thankful tree.  People write down the things they are grateful for on beautiful fall colored leaves and display them in their home all year long.  Here are some I have seen recently that I love.

Char from Crap I've Made shared her traditional Thankful Tree:

I love the dimension that it gets from being in the corner!

Five Hens has a similar version, but I love that each leaf is personalized by using handprints:

Instead of the wall, his this thankful tree can be your centerpiece at the table or sit on your mantle:

And speaking of mantles, if you don't want an entire tree, you can go for just a thankful garland:

Do you have a family tradition for sharing what you are thankful for this time of year?  I would love to hear about it!

Wow, these are fabulous ideas! My kids are all older, and the garland would be perfect for us (not too "childish" for teenagers). :-) Thank you for sharing!

Such an adorable idea! I love that everyone has their own family traditions! Since I am newly married (and a new blogger) I cannot wait to creat some of my own!

We are writing what we are thankful for each day in November on a leaf. Right now they are just sitting on the counter but I LOVE the garland and think I will put them on the mantle first thing in the morning.
