DIY Thankful Board

A few days ago I had my first Apple Cider of the year… I’m pretty sure that means it’s officially Autumn, who needs a calendar? hehe!

This will be the first Thanksgiving without family so the hubs and I are trying to come up with some fun traditions to have with our kids during the holidays. This year I though it would be fun to focus on what we are thankful for so I created this Thankful Board.

I used Lifestyle Craft’s pocket envelope die from their new Fall Core Collection. This really is such a fun collection! // DIY Thankful Board #fall #thanksgiving // DIY Thankful Board #fall #thanksgiving #tutorial

I am so excited about this thankful board! The whole idea of it is each day in November, up until Thanksgiving, the kids will tell me one thing they are thankful for. We will write it down and put it in the envelope, then on Thanksgiving day we will sit down and read them all! // DIY Thankful Board #fall #thanksgiving #tutorial

The envelope die even comes with a die cut for an insert so it’s the perfect size for the envelope! // DIY Thankful Board #fall #thanksgiving #tutorial // DIY Thankful Board #fall #thanksgiving #tutorial

So here is how I made this fun little thankful board

First. cut out all your envelopes // DIY Thankful Board #fall #thanksgiving #tutorial

Next. You will fold them up and glue along the tabs. I also stamped the date on the front of the envelope with my PSA Stamps. // DIY Thankful Board #fall #thanksgiving #tutorial

Then I just took an old window frame and used some thumbtacks to hold the twine in place. // DIY Thankful Board #fall #thanksgiving #tutorial

I did three rows of twine and then used a mini clothespin to hang the envelopes on. I have a thing for mini clothes pins, I also used them in my shabby chic frame wall. : )

      Thanks Crystal! I kinda lucked out with the wheel barrel. I was taking pictures of it on the ground when I realized the people we are renting from left it on the side of the shed : )

      Thanks Lucy! I wish I could find an old window like that with the glass still in it. : ) I’m happy with my screens though! Now if I could just land me some old doors I’d be good to go ; )

      Ahh! So glad I’m not the only one. My husband says it’s unhealthy how I feel about them…haha. He doesn’t understand their cuteness I suppose : )

    Lovin’ the wheelbarrow! Hahaha, I totally found some treasures that the people we are renting from left behind in their shed :) They left this amazing metal mesh basket thing that I put firewood in for decoration in the winter. It is so cute and they just had it out in their shed collecting dust :) I love this project! Darling!

      Thanks so much Beckie! I LOVE those old window screens… got them at our last rental… the guy was going throw them away, I almost fell over. OBVIOUSLY he didn’t know he was talking to a blogger ; ) Thanks for stopping by! Enjoy your weekend coming up!
