I love the Thanksgiving holiday. Gathering with family and taking part in a delicious feast is definitely a huge highlight. However, it’s also a nice day to really focus on all of the things that we have to be thankful for. To help set the tone, there are some decor items that you can make to remind your family of the reason for the holiday. Besides this collection of thankful crafts, I have also designed a subway art printable that you can download for free.
Do you ever wonder what your day would be like if you started it out with counting your blessings? It’s so easy to get bogged down with the daily stresses and worries that we tend to forget about all of the good things. Taking a few minutes to focus on those things helps to put everything else in a better perspective. So, for Thanksgiving and any other day, it’s nice to have some inspirational reminders around the home.

Some of you may be familiar with thankful trees. This thankful pumpkin display is a similar idea. Have family members write what they are thankful for on a decorative pumpkin. It’s a fun exercise and prompts everyone to think. You can use a real pumpkin for this. However, if you want to save it as a keepsake, then purchase a faux one.

Hang a large banner over an old window, across a fireplace mantel, or anywhere that you want to get the message across.
Elegant Photo Wreath
So far, all of the thankful craft ideas had to do with thankful words. However, there are also ways to show thankfulness for specific things. Take family for instance. What better way to be reminded of the love of family than with a pretty photo wreath. Just fill that wreath up with precious memories of your loved ones.
